  • The waterfall is nice to look at, but that is about it. There was broken glass and a used condom at the bottom of the falls. Not exactly a place you want to get your feet wet. Short and easy walk. Amp...  more »
  • Water levels are high and the fall is just beautiful. Off street parking and a short walk are truly worth the time to explore and experience this little piece of heaven.  more »
  • This would be a great spot for a picnic if there was water. Currently with a dry season and lack of rain the falls are really not running.  more »

  • Much better than I had expected.. the waterfall is not even a 5 min walk from parking. Nice little spot to bring the family, have a picnic, plenty of tables and grills, relax by the waterfall. Not many trails by the waterfall but down the rode not even 5 mins and there are plenty of trails for hiking ...
  • Very nice waterfall just feet from the parking area. No hiking paths at the falls, but plenty available at the rest of Willard State Forest. A shaded area which makes it an ideal destination on a hot summer day.
  • Nice little spot for a picnic. There's more than a handful of picnic tables which are spread out giving you some privacy and I'm pretty sure I seen some old grills as well. The waterfalls while not huge, were pretty nice. A few good photo opportunities but nothing spectacular. You wouldn't make a day of it unless you were there to lounge out with the family for lunch.
  • Trap Falls is a great place to go with the kids and family they have grills picnic tables a neat little bridge that goes over the stream under the falls and it's just an all-around great place to spend an afternoon and get cool underneath the falls.
  • Trap Falls is located in Ashby,Ma and is part of Willard Brook State Forest. Easliy accessed, so anyone from from 1 to 101 years old can enjoy. The falls, themselves, are nothing spectacular. But definitely worth the trip to see. If you're a photographer, like myself, this is a great location for a shoot. Lots of granite boulders, lichens, moss, it's just a really naturey place. There's restrooms, picnic table and a habachi grill. Fun for the whole family.
