Nice little hike - very well signposted and the route is well looked after without losing its wilderness feel. It could maybe do with more parking at the trail head, as we went relatively late and still struggled to get a spot.

This is a popular trail, and no wonder. It’s not too hard of a hike, and has a reward at the end: a real waterfall! I like trails with rewards. Yes, parts are rocky and a little steep, but not as bad as the Healdville...More

It is a bit sad that for quite some sights, parks and waterfalls in New England you need to pay fees. However this is a nice exception. The hike difficulty level is moderate and paths might be muddy in summer. So make sure you wear...More
