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

Located about two miles from the post office it is well marked. During our trips to Vermont spring - fall we always try to get this hike in. The falls are not overwhelming and it is a great hike up. Approximately 3 hours round trip.

Its best when you have the falls all to yourself but that doesn't happen to often. A nice hike up the side of the mountain, best to do it in the spring when more water is running down.

The hike itself in fairly easy - our kids did this when they were 4. The hike climbs about 1000 feet - trail can be muddy especially after a hard rain - so plan accordingly. The falls at the top are spectacular. If hurrying you could do the round-trip hike in under an hour. With our kids we plan on... More

If you like to hike, then this a good one in Manchester, VT This not a very difficult hike, but there are some steep sections. I suggest you pack a lunch and drinks and enjoy the hike , have lunch and hike back down.

No real challange but moderate overall and a trip worth taking. Towards the end you cross and area ripped up and washed away in a cyclonic storm in the mid 90s.

The hike to Lye Brook Falls was beautiful. At a casual pace it took my husband and I about 2 hours to hike to the falls. If you're looking for a nice moderate hike, I would absolutely recommend Lye Brook. The falls itself was a bit disappointing compared with others we've seen (New York State Finger Lakes region, Letchworth).

Beautiful trees and very relaxing hike for first .5 miles. Slowly gets steeper and more difficult. Rocks and leaves made it a bit tricky and slippery. Met several on the trail that didn't make it to top due to slick rocks. Take water and have a hiking or walking stick.

My husband and I went on this hike, but with limited time. We gave ourself 3 hours and made it back well within that time. I am glad I read some other reviews first because we knew to keep walking past the dried up waterfall to the actual waterfalls. It was breathtaking! When you get to the falls you can... More
