Great Hike

Beautiful waterfall. Nice hike - not too strenuous. Figure about 2.5 - 3 hours round trip. Don't stand too close to the edge!

Mostly uphill trail that is not marked at all. Make sure you have a guidebook because there are none there at all. No facilities or trash cans.

We parked at the end of Glen Drive then found we could have ridden up the dirt road to the trailhead. The walk starts off gently and there is a register to sign. The trail gets rougher and steeper and needs some high steps to get close to the falls. It is worth the effort We took 2 hours up... More

If you're a moderate hiker, this will be a 1 1/2 hour gradual uphill. If you're not a moderate hiker, this will be painful. MUST REMEMBER - after about an hour, the trail to the falls angles off to the right from the main trail. It's marked and you won't miss it if you're generally awake. The ruins of an... More

After being cooped up during the long, cold winter of 2015, this was the perfect first hike of the season. It is just under 5 miles round trip, and several hundred feet of elevation gain.The falls, surprisingly, were some of the most beautiful that I have seen hiking in New England, Looking at some of the other reviews, several people...

After reading reviews we decided to take this trail. A clear day at the end of December was the perfect weather to hike as it was not too hot and the snow gave the place a great view. The path goes across some streams, rocky terrain and (in our case) it had some slippery ice parts. There is a log... More

A comfortable hike through woodland leading to picturesque falls where you can be up close and personal.

Definitely worth the GPS challenge! I would recommend using a neighboring street off of the website (Glen Rd. I think?) vs searching for Lye Brook Falls. I am not an experience hiker, but this was easy enough for me. The sights were gorgeous especially with the changing of the leaves, and the fall was breathtaking. I urge you not to... More

My husband and I hiked to the falls during our anniversary trip to the area. I thought the hike was easy/moderate (my husband may not agree) and the falls at the end were a great reward. It took us exactly 3 hours including ample time at the falls taking pictures. There are a lot of loose rocks in some areas... More

We were forewarned of the distance to the waterfall via the previous reviews and the difficulties some reviewers had in finding the trail. We found a similar experience. Even with hiking boots, the trail is rough in many places. Often times you have to step on or over big rocks while going uphill. Definitely not a hike if you are... More
