A short walk from the car park - a delightful waterfall, not particularly massive in a July heatwave, but very attractive and worth a detour

Nice area to bring the family for a walk in the woods. Would be nice if people would clean up after themselves though.

...but not too far. If these senior citizens can hike to Wahconah Falls, then most everyone can. It is a hidden gem of natural beauty near the city of Pittsfield. No fee required, but a donation box is available.

Amazing waterfall, especially in spring and after rainy days. Beautiful mountain trail and nice state park with small areas for picnics. Free spacious parking.

This a is beautiful place. It’s a natural waterfall. Grew up in this area and in the summer a local swimming hole. A bit icy in winter so be careful a dogs and small children.

Small falls. Short walk from parking lot, not difficult but there is no signs or other information pointing which was to go. No cost involved.

This was our third waterfall on our tour. Each one is lovelier than the one before. Hiking trails are clean and easy to follow! We loved it here!

Wahconah Falls is located just half a mile off route 9 on the west side of Dalton. We live close by and frequently take our family and friends to see the beautiful falls only 2 miles from our home. There is ample free parking available....More

We went with a large group of family members thinking that this was a state park that was still being maintained. There is no entrance fee, and therefore there is no maintenance. However, there is a bathroom, but there is not a sink in there,...More

There is a very small picnic area before you walk/hike down to the actual fall area.
