Simply Stunning!

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

A wonderful place to cool off on a hot summer's day. We usually drive to the end of the road to the upper swimming hole, because it is a little less crowded, but one day we will explore the others. Our dog loves it!

We stopped for a swim after reading others reviews in Tripadvisor. Thank goodness for the detailed instructions to find this place. But itis well worth the extra effort. The falls are pretty and empty into deep clear pools, perfectNew England swimming hole experience.take pick of the three pools, all are lovely

I made a special trip to see these falls. No real markings--thank goodness TripAdvisor told me to look for Buttermilk Falls Rd. and the Okemo Forest sign. The walk was very short--but also very steep where we parked (at the top of the road at the dead end). I agree better shoes than flip-flops are recommended, though my 11 y.o.... More

Good place for taking a cool dip in the summer. Very refreshing / cold mountain stream with nice waterfalls and deep swimming holes. The paths are not well marked or well developed, but just park a the Okemo Forest sign and head to the water. Very popular place when the temperature heats up.

Friends and I stopped to just see this beautiful waterfall, very easy, short walk off the road to the falls. Kids were jumping off the rocks into the obviously deep water, air smelled of pine, what a wonderful relaxing place to take a picnic and read a book.
