Pleasant Valley Wildlife Sanctuary

View Photo Gallery

Pleasant Valley’s thriving beaver population is one of the many fascinating features of this 1,300 acre sanctuary. When you walk along Yokun Brook, take note of the “lodges” of tree branches and mud, where these nocturnal creatures spend their days. Salamander migrations are a major spring event along West Mountain Road. Seven miles of well-marked and well-maintained trails that wind through hardwood forest, meadows, wetlands, and along the slopes of Lenox Mountain make this site an excellent location for hiking. There are trails for all ability levels including an accessible All Persons's Trail. Canoe trips are offered regularly on the Housatonic River and area lakes from mid-May through Colombus Day. Other public programs are offered year-round. A Nature Day Camp is conducted during July and August.
