The waterfalls were very pretty. Easy to climb up and down for beginners. Can picture it being an awesome swimming hole in the summer months. Just wish there was a clearer sign... read more

The view of the waterfalls is very nice but there was no hiking involved. Takes less than 10 min to see everything.

The falls are pretty but, not well marked and with no real parking available. Be careful with GPS instruction as the road has been blocked, off.

This was an easy hike for the older set. We were here for the fall foliage. This beautiful walk to and around the falls was a nice addition to our trip.

This was one of our best hikes in the Ludlow region, although a short one. The swimming holes made for wonderful places to sit and relax with the lovely waterfalls sounds. These are not large waterfalls and there’s not a lot of water in October but the fall colors make up for it. To get between the waterfalls you walk... More

Beautiful summer spot, especially for the young crowd. Many different levels of pools and falls. Perfect for cooling off. Just don't be surprised if the teenagers don't pick up after themselves.

Pretty, fun but very cold water. Of course!!! there are 3 areas to explore, the lower, middle and upper falls. All with there own personalities. I liked the upper falls best. None are high falls more multiple levels of cascading over rocks of different heights with wading pools and deep pools. Don't miss this.

Amazing! So happy a local told us about this place! It was wonderful! The water was a little chilly, but we enjoyed hopping rocks and taking in the scenery!

Unfortunately not much water flowing at the end of August, however, a pleasant walk in the woods, and still plenty of water for swimming in the pools. Can enter the trails from the road at any of the three falls. Very pleasant spot to enjoy the day or just take a walk. Not much else to do in Ludlow at... More

We decided to try and find the falls after seeing them on the local map of the area. Driving there we weren't sure if we were on the right track, since there aren't many signs to point the way. The paved road up the mountain turned to a gravel/dirt road and we wondered if we should turn around. But, a... More
