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.

Nice walk with several waterfalls. Some great swimming holes, our dog enjoyed them all. Water shoes are a great idea as the swimming holes are quite rocky.

Five stars if you're comfortable with jagged, undeveloped rocky streams. I only put four stars as a warning for the young and elderly who may not be as comfortable with the approach.

My family and I make sure to visit Buttermilk Falls whenever we're in the area, especially during the summer. We love to swim and jump off the rocks! It was a little crowded, but since there are 3 waterfalls and lots of area to explore in between, it's not hard to spread out. I would recommend it to any family,... More

A nice place to sight see. Nothing big, but had a few small waterfalls. Can't hurt to stop and see though!!!

The falls are beautiful, but very cold. Great spot to pack a lunch and hangout for a few hours. Water shoes would be a huge help as there are a lot of rocks and they are very slippery. People jumped off the rocks, but the water isn't that deep so I wouldn't recommend it.

When it hot out side the falls are refreshing. I love this place year round. Nice easy hike through the woods around a few falls.

This is truly a lovely spot where you can just take a stroll along buttermilk falls road, or walk along the more difficult path right next to the falls. Near the end of the road is the swimming hole. It's deep enough so you can jump off one of the rocks if you are brave. Be sure you are safe... More
