There is no parking available at the trail head on Marion Street. Park at the YMCA located on Brickyard Ct. There are signs to the left of the parking lot, leading you to the trail head. Very brief walk with well marked directions. Once you...More

What a beautiful hike! Most of it is pretty flat and easy until the end. Once you get close to the waterfall it gets harder as there are some steeper areas with lots of rocks. My friend has a bad knee so she stopped just...More

This is a very beautiful moderate hiking spot. You are walking up a very gradual hill to the top to see a lovely waterfall that made it worthwhile. Their is nothing prettier than a walk through the New England woods in the fall or spring.

This is a short but nice hike, ending at a waterfall. Perfect if you don't want to do the many longer trails around Mt. Greylock. You aren't supposed to park at the trailhead, but you can park behind the YMCA a couple blocks away and...More

A local favorite trail along Notch Brook in North Adams ending at the Cascades, a lovely "horsetail" waterfall that can be a trickle or a torrent. A relatively short walk, 45 minutes round trip, unless you linger along the way or in front of the...More

This was exactly the hike we wanted: a well marked non-paved hike in a beautifully wooded environment with a waterfall payoff at the end. I will say that I wouldn't categorize it as "easy" since for me that means a flat walk on a paved...More

Beautiful hike that is an easy pace. The trails are well marked and clean. Parking at the start of the trail can be a little congested. Majestic falls are seen at the end.

This was a nice easy hike for our three young children, all under the age of five. Some support needed for them walking over rocks and small streams. The waterfall did not have much water flowing at the time. But it's still very nice! Probably...More

I used to go here every Sunday with my dog before she passed. It is a great walk, nothing crazy but a little hill to climb just before the falls. Pretty easy 20 minute in walk to falls. If you only have a short time...More
