The Bash Bish Falls Trail at Bash Bish State Park in Mt Washington, Massachusetts is a moderate 2 mile out-and-back trail that leads downhill to Bash Bish Falls and follows Bash Bish Brook west. Bash Bish Falls is the highest single-drop waterfall in the state and a must-see if you're visiting the Berkshires.

There are two parking lots for this trail. The parking lot to the west, along Route 344 is an easier hike to the falls, but a longer out-and-back hike. If you park at the east lot, above the falls, you'll end up hiking down a set of stairs and then a steeper portion of the trail to get to the falls; however, it's much faster to reach the falls from the eastern lot.

If you plan to just hike to the falls, the out-and-back hike from the eastern lot is only about 0.6 miles, but it's a much more difficult hike considering the 500 foot elevation gain in just 0.3 miles.

Fishing is allowed in the brook along the trail and dogs are allowed as well.

Trail was good. Parking was all closed due to COVID, so we started at the bottom of the hill, walked up to the parking area and went from there up to the falls, then back down the way. Adds an extra mile or so both ways!

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time into mapping and writing about new trails to publish each month.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes. We simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes or poking around the site to view ads is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
