Off River Rd. Small parking area. A short walk on the well-maintained boardwalk before an even shorter trail to the thundering waterfall. It didn't take more than 30 min. Enough to enjoy the view and allow kids to let out some energy before we hit the road.

Worth the trek here. Great with family and the hike is an easy short trip. Highly recommend it and it's beautiful. You won't need more than 45 minutes here.

This is a real surprise and I remember how I discovered the first time out of the blue when I was hiking on the trails there. Enjoy

Suitable for all ages and abilities, the boardwalk is very well maintained and offers some nice scenery over a marsh. The falls was very pretty, though there was quite a bit of trash about when I was there. A quick walk, but definitely worthwhile.

This "hike" is a short 20 minute walk appropriate for small children and is also wheelchair accessible. The falls are very pretty...really not much more to see but worth the short amount of time.

Even the printed instructions to get here aren't the best, and we initially ended up on Thundering Falls Road, which was one turn too soon. It's a short and easy 20 minute walk along a constructed broad walk to get to the falls which are quite pretty... By the way at the top of Thundering Falls Road is a really... More

I was introduced to this trail by Mike Young, the innkeeper at the wonderful Mountain Valley Retreat that borders this area. It is an easy hike that is accessed from the road over a 300 yard boardwalk. Thus, you experience an aquatic environment over the boardwalk, a gorgeous amphitheater-like forest, the falls themselves, and a little bit of VT history... More

This is a easy hike and nice side trip for anyone, even young kids. The falls are scenic and are on the Appalachian Trail.

Easy walk-in from a small parking lot on Thundering Brook Rd. Nice boardwalk take you. About .5 miles to walk to the falls. Went on 6/26/14 and they were magnificent and roaring. The day before there was a day long monsoon in Killington and the water volume was huge when we went there.

This short walk is accessible to all with a nice boardwalk and groomed trail. Falls are scenic. The AT also crosses this trail.
