Mostly level boardwalk across marsh, then some easy uphill to the lower end of the falls, sixth highest in Vermont.

Totally fun. Very hard to find. Take route 4 then turn onto River road, there is a white sign on the corner that says Recreational and town offices. Follow River road all the way till you pass the rec center and a small white town building, both will be on your right. Just after you pass the town office building... More

We ended a hike on the Appalachian Trail at the falls. Incredible scenery from the foot of the falls, and a nice short stroll on a raised deck through a wetlands meadow with lovely flowers.

Maybe we are poor navigators but we gave up trying to find the falls on two days and only did so when we had one last attempt. Instructions on how to get there are OK provide you just keep going - we kept thinking we'd gone too far on the road particularly once we left tarmac. Once you find the... More

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
