The Cascades

The Cascades Professional Review and Guide

"This short hike is just minutes from downtown North Adams and Williamstown. The Cascades, sometimes referred to as North Brook Falls, are a favorite cool-off spot for the locals, and one of the northern Berkshires’ best waterfalls. The North Brook drops over 1,000 feet in 3 miles on its way to the 40-foot cascading falls.

The trail is heavily used but not maintained well; expect to navigate over and around fallen trees. The trail crosses the North Brook on a secure wooden bridge strong enough to hold up to the rushing winter meltwater. The brook makes its start about 3 miles away in a gorge between Ragged Mountain and Mount Greylock."
