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.

Lots of tree roots and rocks. It took us 2 hours in and up and we didn't have enough water. We managed to make it to the beautiful 800 Ft. waterfall at the end but it was a struggle.

My girlfriend and I often go on hikes and wanted to try someplace new. There are two different trails to hike; a 2.5 mile hike, and a 7.1 mile hike. We opted for the shorter hike to see the base of the waterfall, and it was beautiful. We ended up eating a small lunch at the base of the waterfall,... More

This was a beautiful hike. It was very private and serene - only saw a couple other people at the beginning. It was rated easy so were surprised at how many streams we had to cross, how rocky the path was, and how much elevation gain there was (about 800 feet I think - a lot for Midwestern plains people...

This is a nice 2-3 hour hike in the canopy of the trees with the reward of the beautiful falls at the end.

We hiked up to see the falls and it was breath taking to see them in person. However, this hike is not the easiest one I've done. The trail is very rocky in certain places, and there are some streams to cross over. It's nothing that you can't get through, but just as a fair warning. The falls themselves are... More

The hike took a leisurely three hours, round trip. We did it in May and it was perfect weather. There was a moderate slope and some rocky parts to the trail. Like any hike, you would want to bring weather appropriate gear. The trail is pretty clearly marked. The hike takes you mostly through alder and hemlock forest. The falls... More

Hike was not worth the time-The parking area has many sketchy people not there to hike-Do not take kids-The equinox preserve is a much better place to spend your time
