Hilltown Wilderness Adventures

The proprietor and chief guide behind Hilltown Wilderness Adventures, Marla BB, invites patrons to hitch their dreams of adventure onto the backs of her alaskan huskies for mushing, skijoring, and outdoor excursions in the Berkshires. Her hallmark attraction is mushing through both snowy hills and on dryland tracks—a unique offering for the region that has earned her attention from media outlets such as Mushing magazine and Animal Planet.

The skijoring and sled-dog school teaches novices how to captain a team of dogs either in a sled or on skis, which can give them a way to skip long ski-resort lift lines. Marla also leads day excursions through DAR State Forest, Chesterfield Gorge and Westfield River, and the Deerfield River Watershed, keeping bikers, hikers, kayakers, and bird watchers safe as she is a certified wilderness first responder and an expert in swift-water safety and rescue.

This was so fun! Can't say enough good things! Purchased the 2 person Groupon for husband and me, and 1 person for son. He brought a friend, who used a 1 person Groupon, so everyone got a great value. The boys loved interacting with the dogs, who were so sweet and affectionate. Just a great day trip for dog-lovers, unique and memorable.

So fun! A dog-lover's adventure. Marla is an enthusiastic, cheerful, and knowledgeable guide for this unique activity. The dogs are friendly, affectionate, and happy -- clearly well-cared for and loving their "jobs" as sled dogs. Ample time is given to visitors to visit with each dog individually, as well as participate fully, helping with gearing the dogs up and down before & after the cart ride.
