Bash Bish Falls in Mt Washington State Forest
Bash Bish Falls State Park is located in the southwest corner of Massachusetts. These fantastic falls are the tallest in all of Massachusetts. They are actually two falls separated by a large boulder. We stopped in on our way up to some shopping and dinner in Great Barrington, just 20 minutes away. There are two parking areas for the falls. The one we chose was the first one you come to after entering into the park for the New York state side. The hike is 3/4 of a mile each way. The other parking area appears to be a bit closer to the falls, but I have no idea how steep the hike is. From where we parked, it's a steady incline, but not too terribly steep. The falls are gorgeous. When we visited, it was just after a few days of torrential rain so the falls were thundering down! Usually the pool under the falls is a beautiful blue-green. When we went is was churning white and brown.
