Bash Bish Falls is a quick hike with a huge reward. Some say the 60-foot uninterrupted falls are Massachusetts’s most spectacular. The Bash Bish Brook cascades nearly 120 feet before making the 20-foot plunge to the stone pillar that splits the falls into two, with both then dropping nearly 60 feet to the pool below. Climbing and swimming around the falls is prohibited. AOL Travel named Bash Bish Falls one of the top ten most dangerous travel destinations. The falls have claimed the lives of more than twenty-five people, but if the rules and regulations are followed Bash Bish is as safe as any other hike in this book.
