“Royalston??”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

What an excellent town to visit. It is like going back in time, quaint and no stores, everything is beautiful and very old. As for Doane's, there are 2 more falls that are just as wonderful. Royalston Falls and Spirit Falls. All are well worth the time for a family day trip and picnic, Doane's. for the picnic if you have kids.

“Easy hike”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

See three falls in half a mile on a 4% grade. Watch the little ones, though. Only rope rails on the cliff sides.

“Breathtaking but needs some pruning!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

A wonderful hike, plenty of parking, quiet and very clean. Due to the dangerousness of the falls they are corded off so you can not go up to them, but I do wish they would trim back the trees from the trails so you can get clear views of the waterfalls. It is a shame to hike out there and get a view cluttered wit overgrown and fallen trees.

“Doane's Falls”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

We heard about the nice hiking trail and the waterfalls at Doane's Falls and decided to take a trip there. We were not disappointed with the wonderful waterfalls and clean hiking trails. The water was refreshing and the views were well worth the trip. You can hike for an hour or five minutes and still be alongside the water. Some of the falls were very high and serene.
