I hiked up to the falls with my son. The hike is nice. Maybe a bit much for small children or people who don’t walk a lot. The falls are totally worth the hike though. They are different from most falls. I liked them a...More

Lye brook falls hike is a real Vermont gem, about 2-3 miles with some nice stepping stones to get over a few small streams on the way. We took 4 hours partly because we stopped to admire the scenery and at times the trail is...More
