This hike was very rocky and uphill most of the way. We walked for well over 75 minutes and never found the falls. This has to be way more than 2.5 miles!!

The falls were nice. The 2.3 mile hike to the falls to mostly up up up on rocks. There are a couple flat stretches of less than 200 feet. We had been spoiled by short hikes (<0.2 miles) to amazing waterfalls in Northern VT and NH. We have one kid who loves hiking and enjoyed the challenge. Our other kid... More

This hike is completed in a beautiful Vermont forest. It is a hike of mostly easy to moderate level effort. Since it is all within a forest, expect some muddy sections on the trail. Once at the falls there is a nice spot for photos. If you have very young children, you will want to keep an eye on them.... More

Our family of 5 enjoyed this hike tremendously. It's about 4.5 miles round-trip, which is not short but the walk is relatively easy (took us 2-2.5 hours there, and 1.5 hours back). Most of the walk to the falls is flat or an easy uphill, with just a few short steeper climbs. The waterfalls themselves are beautiful and well worth... More

For two people who live in very flat Florida, this was a good hike to do. Not too difficult, but enough of a grade to test us out. It is pretty rocky, and can be wet and muddy after rains, so hiking boots are best. We went on a Wednesday so the crowds were minimal. The falls are definitely worth... More

A lovely walk from Manchester through the woods to some very pretty falls, the path is clearly marked and easy to follow - although it is muddy in places and decent footwear is needed. Worth driving to the nearby carpark to start the walk rather than traipsing all thr way from town though

An easy hike right out of Manchester,VT for the whole family. Our 4 year old grandson was able to do it. Bring your lunch and enjoy by the falls.

This is a hidden wilderness gem in southern Vermont. There are several private "wild" lakes and lots of hiking. Or you can go to the Lye Brook falls that are majestic. Only a couple of miles.
