About This Location

It is also easy to access the base of the waterfall, which makes it a great waterfall to photograph. The waterfall is constantly rated as one of the best in Massachusetts, so it is best to visit on weekdays when possible.
Accessing the waterfall is quick and simple. The waterfall is located in the Wahconah Falls State Park which features a well-marked trail system.
