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

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
