Shatterack Falls, following the brook from start to finish. Found waterfall #6, time for another book Christy! Shatterack Brook runs from Shatterack Pond in Montgomery to the Westfield River in Russell in the deep valley on the backside of Shatterack Mountain. This land was clear cut by the settlers for grazing like most of the Hilltowns, the barbed wire still there along the old cart path that follows the brook. The Shatterack waterfalls, each unique in appearance and extremely beautiful are showcased in Christy Butler’s book Berkshire Destinations available on Amazon. We followed the cart path from Russell Road, next to the Shatterack Ridge Trailhead one way with 700 feet of elevation drop from falls #5 to falls #1 at the bottom. Five official waterfalls are covered in Berkshire Destinations. Cart path is not blazed, maps on The trail follows the brook down stream which is always on your left. GPS and waypointing of falls before you go is recommended. Look out for a group hike here next spring!
