Lanesborough, although relatively quiet, has a few great gems scattered throughout the town. It was also one of the first communities in the Berkshires. There’s a good deal of small businesses in Lanesborough, in line with much of the county. In the summer, Ramblewild—an aerial adventure park—is in full swing and attracts both locals and tourists alike. There’s also the Ashuwillticook Rail Trail, which has just under 13 miles of trail to walk, jog, bike, skate, and rollerblade on. Although it spans multiple towns, the main entrance is located in Lanesborough. The entrance to the tallest summit in Massachusetts, Mount Greylock, is in Lanesborough as well. Pontoosuc Lake, partially in town, is a popular area to relax (on the water or the public lawn) during the warmer seasons. In autumn, in addition to the amazing displays of yellow and amber leaves, Lakeview Orchard provides a place to pick apples, eat fresh cider donuts, and sip cider that was made in-house. Jiminy Peak is just on the border for skiing and snowboarding in the winter. Route 7 also runs through Lanesborough. Oftentimes, it can be easy to forget just how much the town offers since it is so serene. That being said, experiencing some (or all) of the attractions is definitely worth the trip.
