Falls Rd, Mt Washington, MA 01258
Bash Bish Falls might be the most spectacular waterfall in the state Massachusetts. It’s literally located on the state line of NY and MA.
The falls plummet through a series of dramatic gorges before finally cascading about 80 feet into sparkling pools of water.
Swimming is not allowed in the pool below the falls. Use caution as the stones down around the falls are smooth and slick from years of traffic and it is easy to slip.
You have two choices on how to reach the base of the falls. From the Massachusetts entrance, it’s a short steep hike down, and a brutally steep climb back up. The New York entrance, about a mile away, is pretty much flat and easy. The choice is yours.
If you are in The Berkshires to see the leaves changing in the Fall – don’t miss this short hike and waterfall.
A sign marks the the borders between New York and Massachusetts, no tolls, Haha!
