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

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.

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!
