My kids loved this place more than a water park. At first glance the waterfall may be underwhelming, but go all the way down to get a good view back up and you will learn to appreciate it. Both the bottom pool and the upper...More

Saw "falls" and thought it had to be a "must see". It is very popular, and had to wait for a parking spot. Long drive in, and thought I had missed it, but then there was the trail head. The trail itself is not hard,...More

Had to write a review of this to clear some things up. First, yes, the drive is 6.8 km on a small (real narrow) dirt road. Not good for an RV, and low slung cars might want to think twice too. Yes, the falls are...More

Take the time to visit Mary Ann Falls if travelling the Cabot Trail. Especially beautiful at this time of year. Quite a drive from the Highway and you do wonder if you are going the correct way but not too far to walk from the...More

The drive to Mary Ann falls is down a well maintained dirt road that doesn't require a special vehicle. The falls are a short distance from the parking lot, there are a number of stairs (less than 100) once you cross a bridge. If it...More

We found a list of water falls which were located near the Cabot trail. The drive off the Cabot Trail was on a gravel road about 15 minutes up to the parking area but the walk afterward was only 300-400 meters. The falls were beautiful....More

The falls are beautiful. We didn't swim because it was pretty chilly but there were lots of kids enjoying jumping off the rocks. The road was a little more rough than we anticipated, and takes about 15-20 minutes to drive down. Worth it though!

Beautiful hidden away spot, but you will be giving the car suspension more than just a little workout. 7k gravel lane with numerous potholes and ruts. Go slow and enjoy the visit when you get there. Two perfect basins for swimming. There are much better...More

Beautiful falls! Easy to get to with a set of stairs! Able to swim around or jump off different ledges. We even went further up the falls and sat in the pools to cool off as well!

Another Falls that you have to to drive up dirt/rocky road.Easy to park there and about a mile hike to get the falls and there are a couple different vantage points to see the falls. People were also swimming near the falls

6.5 km or 4 miles off the Cabot Trail. It's a gravel road, in good condition, but all up hill on the way to the falls.
