Short hike to beautiful waterfalls in the heart of Greylock. The distance in the description does not include walking from the parking area on Rockwell Road to the tralhead off Sperry Road. Plan about half hour to access the trailhead from the parking area.

Did this this morning. Parked on Mt Greylock. Walked down to trail head at campground. Probably could have parked there though. Easy to get to falls, strenuous in way back up but def doable. Water is a trickle we need rain.

We really enjoyed this trail, at times it gets hard but all around easy to get too. The trail is very well market and if there was more rain the falls would be bigger. Being Berkshire County residents this is a nice trail to find we will be using it again and possibly camping.

great hike to falls on a nice spring day. the hiking is moderate. hiking sticks would help if you have them. wild flowers everywhere. steep drops here and there. we saw warblers everywhere. took nice pics in front to of falls. be careful there, rocks get slippery. this is a must do

I followed the directions to get to the trail and ended up on top of mt grey lock I never was able to find the trail even following the GPS. It was a beautiful sight on top of my grey lock and ended. Up being a fun adventure with great views there are plenty of trails along the way up to take

If you are going to chose one set of falls to see on Greylock, I'd suggest this one. The March Cataract Falls Trail is a 2.0m trail that can be accessed from Sperry Road, so plan on the extra mileage hiking on Sperry Road. I'd suggest parking at the CCC Dynamite Trailhead, heading down Sperry Rd and the trail will be on the right. It's pretty moderate with one short strenuous part due to rocks. The falls however, are beautiful. Definitely worth the hike.
