State police say the 62-year-old woman fell about five feet down an embankment at Bash Bish Falls State Park in Mount Washington at about 1:30 p.m. Sunday.
The woman’s name and the exact nature of her injuries were not disclosed.
After a 90-minute rescue effort, the woman was taken to a nearby landing site where she was flown to Albany Medical Center.
Bash Bish Falls is the highest single-drop waterfall in Massachusetts, with a 60-foot drop.
