Trip Planner: USA / Massachusetts / Mount Washington / Bash Bish Falls
Bash Bish Falls, a waterfall in Bash Bish Falls State Park in the Taconic Mountains of southwestern Massachusetts (Berkshire County), is the highest waterfall in the state. The falls are made up of a series of cascades, nearly 200 feet (61 m) in total. The final cascade is split into twin falls by a jutting rock, dropping in a 59-foot (18 m) "V" over boulders to a serene pool below.Use our Mount Washington day trip site to add Bash Bish Falls and other attractions to your Mount Washington vacation plans.
The waters of Bash Bish Falls begin at a spring in Mount Washington and after the falls, Bash Bish Brook has cut a 1,000 -foot deep valley on its way westward to adjacent New York State. The brook cuts between Bash Bish Mountain (elevation 1890) and Cedar Mountain (elevation 1883) creating a dramatic gorge that frames the falls.
Bash Bish Falls State Park is located next to both Massachusetts' 4,000-acre (16 km2) Mount Washington State Forest and New York's 5,000-acre (20 km2) Taconic State Park.

We went in November so it was a bit chilly! The hike from the NY side was much less slippery and an easy grade up to the falls than from the MA side. We had the fall to ourselves and we’re able to create some beautiful photos. Nice falls and a beautiful area.
Breathtaking view of a beautiful waterfall!!! Loved it so much, very picturesque area, great for photos. Definitely visit. The hike downhill and then uphill is a bit challenging, but the waterfall is down below. It is worth it!!
