About Us


Housatonic River Walk
1988 – 2012
Created for the 250th anniversary of the Town of Great Barrington.

The timeline begins in 1988 with the Denny Alsop Riverbank Clean-up, when 16 volunteers removed 15 tons of debris from the riverbank. Subsequent events included the Housatilla Flotilla led by Mahican representatives in 1991, the dedication of the first 136 feet of trail in 1992, dedications of the Du Bois River Park and William Stanley Overlook in 2002 and 2006, and many more.
