This is a great waterfall for all hiking levels. It is a short trip to the falls. Plenty more to explore if you wish. I recommend getting into the river and heading up to the falls. You can safely climb the first shelf and that...More

Worth the climb to see. I have visited the area before, but this was my first time viewing the falls.

We had researched waterfalls in the Stowe area and this one was highly rated. We agree, it is definitely one of the best. The hike wasn't too bad, a little marshy at the beginning due to recent rains but relatively flat. The last couple of...More

Gets better and better asl you go up. At the top of the falls the look back down in spots is beautiful! Easy hike, but elderly and real young might find some of the ascent tricky with the roots, rocks and slippery dirt if wet.

This is a wonderful short hike that leads to a very nice cascading waterfall. There are water holes to swim in as well. You can stop at the falls or walk up along the falls to get more exercise. Sneakers are sufficient footwear

The falls are really impressive and they are only a short hike away from the road. We visited during the July 4th weekend and it was a little too crowded to fully enjoy.

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
