“Quick hike to a hideaway waterfall in Killington”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

If you don't want a huge hike which gets you all sweaty in this hot weather, stroll over to thundering falls and bring your camera. Hidden trail head on the way to the Killington town hall and library area. Parking for 4-5 cars, no strenuous hiking required.

“New title "Waterless falls trail"”
Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

Beautiful setting. Easy and short trail. Boardwalk gets you close to plants and water without messy mud etc if youre not a big nature buff.

We were there end of June 2013 and saw Zero water coming down the fall. A gentleman we met there said the town had rerouted the water through pipes to provide power through a hydropowered plant.

“a.k.a. Bakers Falls. Handicapped assessable”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

A pretty waterfall 20 feet wide in two drops. Upper falls 49 feet 6 inches long with a vertical drop of 33 feet 6 inches. The lower falls (viewed from a viewing platform) 163 feet long with a vertical drop of 69 feet 6 inches. this waterfall is very easily assessable and safe to view. Follow the Appalachian Trail west from the River Road via the board walk. Note: From Thundering Brook Road at the river crossing, walk upstream 15 minutes for three more cascades. Careful, there is NO path.

“short trail to a nice waterfall”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

nothing spectacular but worth the 5 minute hike to the waterfall. If you have more time, continue along the Appalachian trail to Mountain Meadows.
