Woods, wildflowers, and waterfall, how could you resist this short hike on the side of Mount Greylock in the Berkshires of Massachusetts ;)

Park at the Junction of Sperry Rd and Rockwell Rd. To get to the trailhead, hike along Sperry Road for about 30 minutes. (Not to the end of the road, see map below.) Then hike along the March Cataract Trail, an out-and-back. You can bring dogs on leash. The trail is short but steep in some parts also the trail is accessible March-October. Enjoy the wildflowers, wildlife, and waterfall on this pleasant trail.

Amazing day hike in the fall!

I did this hike last week on a Tuesday afternoon. It was quiet, peaceful, and colorful! Loved it. The falls were just a trickle, but the leaves made up for it!
