Beautiful Falls
Sep 2021
You pull into a rest area that is on the right on route 4 as you leave Langeley where Smalls Falls is located. Drive as far back in the rest area as you can where you take the steps down to the bridge across Sandy River. Walk up the opposite side of the river to get a better view of the falls. There are four separate falls with a total drop of 54 feet. Smalls Falls is worth a stop. It is in a colorful and beautiful gorge in the area.

The best waterfalls in all of Maine!
Jul 2021 • Couples
There are a number of waterfalls across the state of Maine that various websites recommend, some you shouldn’t miss and others you might as well skip. It’s difficult to know by mere photographs which waterfalls are worth the effort and which are not. Having seen them all, Smalls Falls is unquestionably worthy of a long drive!

Its uniqueness lies in its multiple levels, with four different waterfalls cascading into large pools. The crystal clear waters of the Sandy River plunge 54 feet over a series of drops, forming lagoons perfect for swimming, and one deep enough for cliff diving.

Downriver, picnic tables line the banks along charming pathways amidst the forest. This is certainly one of the most picturesque places in the entire state of Maine.

Nice family friendly place
Jun 2021 • Family
Enjoyed spending few hours by the falls. We found a nice flat rock to spread blankets and enjoyed picnic. It does get a big crowded and noisy at times. If you are get tired if water water, you can walk Thru the woods. There are many pathways, all running into each other and essentially leading to the same destination.

The falls seem smaller than 20 years ago but still absolutely beautiful. Great day trip for couples or families.

Very niceBut really needs some attention. The grounds need some updating and some of the walkways need to be repaired.

An Oasis to fully relax
Aug 2020 • Couples
This was my first time visiting Small Falls & I wish I was more prepared. No worries, I know for next time! There are numerous parts of the fall you can enjoy, beginning from the bottom all the way to the top. I was unaware you can actually get in the water so I did not bring a swimsuit, but the temptation of the natural springs was too good to resist. So I went in with shorts & a tank. A few safety precautions, this area requires a lot walking in rough areas (it’s the woods), the rocks in the water are extremely slippery (wear proper footwear) and bugs are inevitable (bug spray). There are grills outside of the area so you can grill or pack food and eat right near the water. There are numerous locations within the falls, so you should have an area to yourself if it’s not busy. I saw numerous children jump off the rocks and into the water more towards the bottom of the fall. It was quite tempting myself:). As you hike further up, it’s pretty serene & picturesque. I highly recommend a visit if near the area! FYI, This area is clean & there are no garbage pails, therefore, bring something to dispose of your trash, it’s litter free:)

Great place for a quick jaunt
Jun 2020
This is a great place for a quick jaunt. You can play in the water (it was quite cold in June) or climb up to the top of the falls and look down. Bring your bug spray, the mosquitoes were vicious.

nice and close

This is a nice waterfall. Larger than expected. It's nice that you don't have to walk far to see. Just off the parking lot. Worth stopping to see.

Short hike with great views
Oct 2019
This a very short hike with a steep trail but easy to manage with the well marked trail and fencing. It’s a great view for very little effort, there are multiple levels of the falls to see.
