We stopped here for bit while exploring central Vermont. There was easy access and its just a short hike around the area. Great place to visit during the foliage season for a quick stop.

Mother Nature entertains at this spot. This is a great stop for lunch along the Appalachian Trail......

This was a quick hike. Easy for young children. Parking lot small. Decking built for walking and wheelchairs to access. Too close not to stop.

Our waiter suggested going here. You walk on a raised wooden walkway almost to the falls and then it an easy hike the rest of the way. It was fascinating to see the water wander down the rock wall.
