  • Visit the beautiful Berkshires 1 2 Share Save the Date TUESDAY, APRIL 19, 2011, 7:00 PM - Interlaken Inn Forum on the Housatonic Covered Bride Bike Trail A forum will be held to discuss the economic impact of the proposed bicycle trail that would connect nine Litchfield County communities along the Housatonic River. Discussion and expert commentary by Carl Knoch of the Rails To Trails Conservancy, Bruce Adams (Kent First Selectman) and Ruth Skovron (Northwestern CT Regional Planning Collaborative). Knoch is the author of “Trail User Surveys and Economic Impact,” a summary of 14 trail user expenditure surveys in the Northeastern U.S. FORUM IS FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. The Housatonic Covered Bridge Bike Trail would use the old river roads that parallel the Housatonic, and typically have little traffic. Relative to the rest of the area, the river roads have very few hills, making for a more enjoyable ride. The proposed “HouBike” Trail is approximately 45 miles long, and would run from Ashley Falls, MA to New Milford, CT. The Berkshires Trail would connect an several attractions: Bartholomew’s Cobble The Great Falls in Falls Village Dean Ravine and the Covered Bridge in Cornwall Kent Falls State Park The Sloane – Stanley Museum / Connecticut Antique Machinery Association The ledges at the Schaghticoke Indian Reservation Bulls Bridge and its gorge And Sega Meadows in New Milford.

  • Visit the beautiful Berkshires Lori McKenna performs with special guest Lucy Wainwright-Roche Details: April 3rd, 2011 7pm Phone: 413-665-4036 Signature Sounds Concerts Memorial Hall - 51 Bridge Street Shelburne Falls, MA 01370 Lori is a long time Berkshires resdient living in Stoughton, Massachusetts with her husband and children. Her sound is a Boston folk favorite with lyrics about love, pain and pathos of domestic life. Musical artists Tim McGraw, Carrie Underwood, Alison Krauss, Keith Urban, and LeAnn Rimes are among the many that have recorded McKennas songs in recent years. As a young woman faith and spirituality were ever present in her life; "I think I made better choices in my life because I felt [my mother was with me]." Loris latest album track. "Still Down Here" is a prayer that all the loved ones who leave their earthly burdens behind remember the ones still here on Earth, still in need of their love and guidance. With a daughter so empathetic to the human condition and so loyal and loving to her family and community, one guesses that Loris mother, Lorraine is looking down, very proud. 3 Comments Click here to read/write comments Hayrides, sleigh rides, weddings, and more.http://www.hilltophousebb.com/berkshires-/[9/12/2011 3:22:05 PM]
