“Umpachine Falls”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

Hiking and splashing long the gentle upgrade at Umpachine Falls, you may easily imagine indiginous early people tracking quarry or seine netting fish or foraging for woodland greens. Coursing down the Konkapot River in the New Marlboro/Mill River area of Berkshire County, Massachusetts, the water is a constant drumming that fills your chest and head, and the ozone level in the air flushes your lungs. It's free and usually uncrowded. A place apart.

“questing--quiet gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2012

Take your time going through this lovely reservation. ON the surface it's just a hike in the woods. If you look closely and take your time you will see up to 10 species of butterflies, vernal pools, old cellar holes and ruins of a farmhouse, several different elevations with very different ecosystems, and an old oak tree that must be 200 years old that had its top sheared off by lightening. A special place.

“Pretty but limited”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2012

Interesting solitude, nice loop through woods and field. A little hard to get to (dirt road), and not as large as other Trustees of Reservations properties in the Berkshires.
