The Summer months are upon us and Massachusetts residents are wanting to get out and explore! Of course, there is tons of exploring to do throughout the entire state this Summer. And maybe one of those spots you will find yourself exploring is the tallest waterfall throughout the entire Bay State, which happens to be located in western Massachusetts.

Sometimes you get to learn some awesome facts about your own state. This is something that some people living here for quite awhile had no clue about.

The travel publication 'Nothing Familiar' posted about this spot and they couldn't stop ranting and raving about how breathtaking the view of the tallest waterfall in the state of Massachusetts is. They also posted some fun and not-so-fun facts about the waterfall and its location. But most importantly they said this:

Ready to be in awe of the tallest waterfall in Massachusetts?? Bash Bish Falls State Park is one of the most beautiful places to visit in the Berkshires!

Yep, Bash Bish Falls State Park is where you will find the tallest waterfall in Massachusetts.



The waterfall is roughly 80 feet high, which of course, makes it the tallest in the Bay State. The springs of Mt. Washington would be where all that water is coming from. However, 'Nothing Familiar' also points out that there have been 25 deaths from cliff jumpers making the leap into the shallow waters. No swimming is allowed at the spot. However, there are designated viewing areas for spectators to enjoy a view of the spectacular waterfall.

Bash Bish Falls are about 25 minutes southwest of Great Barrington, right next to the New York border. Given that parking on the Massachusetts side of Bash Bish Falls State Park, you will likely want to park on the New York side of the park so you can hike up to that point.

As you can tell, the waterfall at Bash Bish Falls is pretty popular when it comes to social media as well...

In the meantime, there is plenty of time left during the Summer months so we can enjoy awesome scenery at Bash Bish Falls State Park. It's just one more beautiful thing to check out on your next road trip in Massachusetts.
