Waterfalls are alive with energy; each having its own distinct personality. Many local waterfalls are accompanied by folk tales or legends that explain their reputations – some soft and gradual, others more severe – each one a unique expression of natural strength and beauty.
The varying terrain throughout the Berkshire Mountains, Litchfield Hills, and Oblong Valley is decorated by a plethora of waterfalls. Dramatic forces of nature that demand attention yet simultaneously calm our senses with their sound, cool misty air, and turbulently churning pools of water.
“Many a calm river begins as a turbulent waterfall, yet none hurtles and foams all the way to the sea.”
“Waterfalling” has become a pastime. Channel your path through the Berkshire Mountains and explore some of the Tri-state region’s most impressive natural forces:
- Bash Bish Falls (situated on the border of Mt. Washington, MA & Copake Falls, NY)
