  • Excellent hike to the falls on the Lower Trail. We went up on a 45 degree day after a multi-day deep freeze. The ice on the creek and the falls was stunning. The trail was a little hazardous with ice ...  more »

  • This was a great hike. It was beautiful. A little crowded but it was Labor Day so that's to be expected. There are two trails going to the Cascades. The Upper Trail is more like a path where the Lower Trail is more rugged. We took the Lower Trail to the falls and Upper back and it was great. We hiked with a 9 month old in a carrier. The Lower Trail may be a bit more difficult for younger kids walking on their own.
  • Wonderful walk! A bit challenging, but worth the 4 mile hike! One path is straight uphill, the other is climbing stairs and walking along the creek! I enjoyed every minute of this hike! Use bug spray! Wear good shoes!
  • Amazing hike. Take the lower trail on the way up. Take the upper trail on the way down. July and August is the best months for hike. Water is cold but air temperature is warm and therefore creates ideal situation to go under the waterfall.
  • Classic, spectacular hike for VT folks and people in the area. The more challenging but more beautiful path is to the left, the flatter one that's further from the stream is to the right. It can be colder along the way and at the top, so you might want to bring a jacket even if it's warm at the base. Parking is $3 and requires exact change, so bring some singles. Be careful and respectful...nature is beautiful but can be unforgiving!
  • Best hike East of the Mississippi! Two miles of continuous cascading stream from the trail head to a beautiful waterfall with natural pool. Excellent trail - easy to moderate next to stream and surrounded by beautiful hardwood forest.
