Umpachenee Falls

A classic Berkshire ride, starting from the Windflower Inn in Great Barrington, MA but very near the hamlet of South Egremont. It starts out with easy cycling along the flat flood plain of the Housatonic River through Sheffield farmland, then some gentle climbing toward Mill River, a Berkshire hill town, to Umpachenee Falls. On our return, we enjoy an exhilarating downhill ride back to the Housatonic River before returning to Sheffield, where you should stop by the oldest covered bridge in Massachusetts. This ride is approximately 33 miles.
