This afternoon, after our weekend guests checked out we went exploring for new and beautiful places to hike. We found one only 20-25 minutes from Brook Farm Inn called Wahconah Falls. It is located on the Dalton/Windsor line in Wahconah Falls State Park just off Route 9. The falls dive deeply over ledges below the Windsor Reservoir. Hiking trails start from the large parking lot and meander through the woods along the side of the brook which is a tributary of the Housatonic River. The setting is nature at its best. The hike is easy and the scenery will make you stop and stare. It’s easy to see how this park can make for a great picnic spot in warm weather.
When guests of the inn ask about hiking trails we offer maps and books of the numerous places to visit. We have been visitors or residents of the Berkshires for more than 25 years and we are still discovering places to visit and things to do. Take some time away from the office and the daily grind. Call us and book some time to enjoy the natural beauty of the Berkshires.
