The falls are a short walk and worth the time to see, set in the lovely forest. An easy boardwalk make the falls accessible to almost anyone.

This was the perfect morning walk! The path to the falls was easy and it just a short hike to the top of the falls!!! Plus it's close to other trails to hike on!

The trail to the falls is 98% on a man made boardwalk. The boardwalk starts at the street and goes thru the fields to the falls. The walk is essentially level- like a beach boardwalk. After approx. 10-15 minutes you approach the falls. The walk is scenic and the falls are pretty good. I will attempt to attach some photos.

What a great visit we had hiking a piece of the Appalachian Trail to see Thundering Falls. We got to meet a couple of through hikers making their way up the trail to Katahdin. Wish I was there now!! We hiked and hiked and the trip was worth the effort. We ran into a few other hikers who were admiring... More

Pretty spot .. only a few hundred yards from the road on a boardwalk .. Great place to bring little kids, grand parents, or flatlanders for a glimpse of the woods on way to or from something else .. Pretty waterfall, but not a long enough of a walk to be a destination all to itself.

The falls can really roar to life with good conditions and you can see how it got the name of Thundering Falls. -otherwise it's just a nice brisk walk with gorgeous scenery Bonus knowledge, that building that is next to the falls is a small power plant for a group of homes nearby.

The Falls themselves were nice to see but I was expecting a longer hike and this was just around the corner.

We stumbled upon this little gem just last month while trying to find a new spot to visit that was close by. The path in is a boardwalk so it is easy for all age groups. The falls were not very thunderous during our visit but the walk in is lovely and the view up is pleasant. A fun little... More

We were staying at a nearby bed and breakfast and the owner had told us about Thundering Falls just being a short distance away. So we suited up and took the short walk to the boardwalk part of the trail, was a nice flat walk above the marsh and was cool to see it from above. There was a small... More
