  • would be nice to revisit in spring when snow thaw is happening which will make the falls more dramatic! DOn't forget to go across 119 to the camp ground entrance where there is a lovely covered bridge...  more »
  • 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 »

  • 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.
