Went here to propose and everything went perfect! Also she said yes! Easy hike and short trail to see the falls. Worth the 5 min drive from Stowe.

It’s a bit of a hike but so worth it. If you are in noble to climb a steep hilll the falls are accessible if you follow the creek. Completely worth it.

The parking is off the beaten path. Walk to the falls is easy until you get to the falls. Then a little balance and sure footing is helpful. The falls and surrounding woods are nice.

Short easy hike to a very pretty set of waterfalls. As with most hikes near Stowe good trail shoes are strongly recommended. There is a bit of climbing but nothing too strenuous.

Short but accessible hike to the Falls, well worth the trip. I would recommend getting there early as it can get very crowded and parking can be a pain. Trail can be muddy to start and then is a bit steep - made more difficult...More

The trail is short, but can be muddy on damp days. At the Falls it can be a little difficult, especially if it is crowded.

Very beautiful spot. The walk to the bottom of the falls isn't hard, but can be slippery. If you are more daring, you can climb pretty far up the hill across the falls. The roots make it tricky, but very doable! Worth the time to...More

Moss Glenn Fall (near Stowe-there's something with a similar name an hour south) is a beautiful stream that cascades over a large granite face and is worth a visit. We made the short hike (which is well marked and not too difficult) on a sunny...More

It's about a ten min. walk over mostly level, but somewhat muddy land. The last approach is all uphill- we joked about having to repel back down, so it's quite steep and we needed to brace against roots, hold onto trees... More

Yes and no. There are parts of it you can see, but that involves climbing down, closer to the actual fall. And even while you climb down, you still may not be able to see the whole thing unless you're willing to walk through... More
