Explore the Bash Bish Falls.

The Berkshires comprise large tracts of wilderness noted for its beautiful natural scenery.

If you’re looking for a nice easy (about 1.5 miles) hike to head to this Spring, Summer or Fall, the dramatic Bash Bish Falls is the tallest single-drop waterfall on the New York/ Massachusetts border Bash Bish Falls

There are so many hiking spots near this Amenia B&B and we’ve only just touched the tip of the iceberg, but Bash Bish is one that we kept hearing about and it didn’t disappoint! It starts out as an easy slightly uphill trail thru the woods. If you have small children with you, you’ll need to keep them close because of the steep drop to one side where the water from the

falls runs thru. As you approach the top it opens up into a beautiful double sided waterfall. You can climb down the stairs to get close.

TUESDAY, APRIL 19, 2011, 7:00  PM  – Interlaken Inn
Forum on the Housatonic Covered Bride Bike Trail

A forum will be held to discuss the economic impact of the proposed bicycle trail that would connect nine Litchfield County communities along the Housatonic River.

Discussion and expert commentary by Carl Knoch of the Rails To Trails Conservancy, Bruce Adams (Kent First Selectman) and Ruth Skovron (Northwestern CT Regional Planning Collaborative).

Knoch is the author of  “Trail User Surveys and Economic Impact,” a summary of 14 trail user expenditure surveys in the Northeastern U.S.



The Housatonic Covered Bridge Bike Trail would use the old river roads that parallel the Housatonic, and typically have little traffic. Relative to the rest of the area, the river roads have very few hills, making for a more enjoyable ride. The proposed “HouBike” Trail is approximately 45 miles long, and would run from Ashley Falls, MA to New Milford, CT.
