About Wahconah Falls State Park

Wahconah Falls State Park provides forested hiking opportunities and a remarkable 40-foot waterfall spectacle. Giving the park its name, Wahconah Falls is the culmination of its brook's journey, which flows over many smaller falls before becoming the main attraction. Visitors can walk a half-mile loop along the upper falls to see more of the Wahconah Falls Brook, find a spot to fish downstream, or may choose to relax by the waterfall. The property also includes picnic areas near the falls, consisting of several picnic tables and grills. Regardless of desired activities, sitting beneath the trees alongside a gushing waterfall is a perfect way to see, listen, and experience the natural beauty offered by the Berkshires.

A parking lot on Wahconah Falls Road allows visitors to stop and explore the state park from sunrise to sundown, free of charge. From the parking lot, a quick walk down a graded path leads to the waterfall area. As a state park, Wahconah Falls is owned and regulated by the State of Massachusetts. The Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) posts updated park alerts and closures on their Trail Safety website, which may be helpful to reference before visiting or during inclement weather.
