A very short Walk on the perfect boardalk through lush meadows to a very nice waterfall. There were two types of flowers that were just stunning! Totally peaceful and relaxing. Perfect for walking challenged people. Since it was such a brief walk to the Falls, I did continue up the dirt and tree root path alongside of the waterfall, driven... More

Very easy to get to along the boardwalk and trail. The water level must have been down somewhat since the amount of water flowing over the rocks was not as great as shown in the picture above.

We found the entrance to the falls at the top of the falls. We took a short hike to the bottom and then hooked up to the falls. The view was beautiful and due to the falls being somewhat docile due to low water levels, we were able to crawl into the falls and then hike up the side back... More

The falls are hard to get to if you don't know where you're going, when you get to a lodge you go by a lake and then ride up a very steep dirt hill with many bumps. Then when you actually arrive to the so called falls it's just a very short walk down a boardwalk to a standing area... More

This is a short hike through a meadow and into a wooded area to a waterfall. The boardwalk makes it an easy walk. When the boardwalk ends, the path is still comfortable, with a small incline. It is possible to climb up the side of the waterfall to the water basin above for a dip in the water. The trail... More

we first walked up wooden planks to the falls. I saw some ppl with carriages so it is stroller friendly although our little kids walked it up. we then drove around to the top (some ppl hiked) and the kids had a grand time in the creek wading and skipping stones. Was all in all a fun day and was... More

Most of the reviews are written by people coming in from the marsh area. It is an easy walk on a boardwalk trail, accessible by nearly all. An alternative approach is from Thundering Brook Road coming from the west. The AT crosses the road and there are two very small areas for parking. The trail is well marked but with... More

If you need a short(ish) activity in the summer in Killington, the falls are a nice choice. We went with a baby stroller and strolled along the boardwalk through the beautiful marsh with summer wildflowers. The path is a little thin but there are spots every 100 feet or so to "pull over" so people can pass (there is room... More

This was an easy, quick hike to a beautiful falls area. More hiking can be done for those who want to. Be aware there is no place to sit and "ponder" for a while--but lovely none the less!
