Worth the 7 minute hike. Excellent photos. At your own discretion you can also hike to the top of the waterfalls! Incredible site!

A nice short and easy walk on the boardwalk to the falls. You can also hike up alongside the fall and back down. Or hike to the top, go on to the road, walk to the bottom of the road and take another left back to the trailhead.

seeing thundering falls was a highlight of my hiking in the killington area -- a spectacular site to see, yet a very calming setting hidden beneath the forest canopy.

Not the easiest place to find given it has a small sign marking its location. Look for the pull off on the marsh side of the road, room for 5 or so vehicles and across from the AT trail. In fact I believe the trail to the falls is about 90% within the AT trail. Nicely done trail with boardwalk... More

It's a picturesque area where a lovely boardwalk winds through the brush to take you to a short, gravel-covered path leading to the falls. The falls are beautiful, loud, and refreshing. An easy trip to make if you're in the area.

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.
