Drive down River Rd until it turns into a dirt road. Parking for 5-6 cars at the trailhead. This is a very well maintained area, beautiful boardwalk and then crushed stone trail. The waterfall is right off the AT. We met three through hikers headed toward Katahdin! It was a beautiful waterfall and a perfect mini adventure with two toddlers.

You must enjoy this outdoor activity. The falls are wonderful and the walk to them is just as good. You take an elevated boardwalk to the lower falls and then you have the option to climb a trail to the top. The sights and sounds will be pleasing to you.

we visited a few days after a heavy rain, so the falls were spectacular. The boardwalk leading to the falls was a pleasant surprise for us, since we are not "real hikers". This little side trip is well worth finding

We parked along River Road where there is only space for maybe 4-6 cars. There is an entrance to a boardwalk there that goes over a marshy area. It is very well maintained and makes the waterfall more accessible to those with mobility issues. Once at the falls, you can easily hike up it and enjoy the Thundering along the... More

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.

We hiked the long way from a trailhead, but there is a good accessible trail for individuals in wheelchairs to the falls from a parking lot

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.
