About Bellevue Cemetery
Bellevue Cemetery is a place of burial with scenic views of the Berkshires, including Mount Greylock. On the western side of the cemetery, visitors can access a trailhead that leads to Bellevue Falls.
Once at the start, a wide path will travel away from the cemetery down a steep hill through a forest of beech trees. As visitors proceed down the trail, rushing water becomes more audible. Then, visitors will arrive at the waterfall. With its large pool and clear water, this small cascade acts as a hidden swimming hole on hot summer days in Western Massachusetts. If swimming is not on the itinerary, visitors can relax and watch the stream flow swiftly over mossy rocks. Light often shines through the forest's tall hemlock trees in the afternoon, providing a calm feeling. Overall, this waterfall is a refreshing place to rest and rejuvenate on a warm day in nature. The water in the creek is always cold, even on the hottest days of the year.
There is a small parking lot on the eastern side of the cemetery, next to a white fence. If the parking lot is full, visitors can also park on the side of the road where respectful.
