Hiking in the Berkshires and NY/CT border areas.

We've been looking at hikes in the Berkshires and nearby border areas in NY and CT. Most of what we see are easy to barely moderate hikes on the sites, and we're looking for more moderate-to-strenuous variety, so any suggestions are appreciated.

Thanks.

Mount Greylock in Adams can be made in to a strenuous hike if you start from one of the two southern most parking lots. Though it isn't comparable to the Adirondaks or the White Mountains.

Sages Ravine (easy but beautiful) leading to Mount Race (big overlooks, very nice, part of the AT). Not especially difficult but rewarding. I read that Race Brook Falls trail in Sheffield is more strenuous and has great waterfalls. Connects with trail up Mt Everett.
