Very nice hike, the falls are more beautiful in person than I could have imagined. We hiked to the bottom and then hiked to the top. I would say the ascent to the top is moderate at the steepest sections. Trail to the bottom is...More

How can you rate a natural wonder that is constantly changing? Or one that is so large, you can't see it all unless you are a good distance away! Like the analogy of blind men examining an elephant, each one standing at different locations around...More

The hike from the parking lot to the base of Roaring Brook Falls is a very easy one. In October The leaves were beautiful but the falls were running a bit light!

This is a short walk from the parking lot. Best after a rain and the spring thaw. Close to other regional attractions.

Short walk from parking lot to the base of the falls, best in spring or after a good rain storm. Bring a camera.

Take the family and slowly walk up to the falls or go slow and enjoy the relaxed climb. It can be done in thirty minutes swiftly or slowly for old and tired folks in an hour so you don't become winded. The view is worth...More

right off of 73 you will find this wonderful little hike that leads to the waterfall. It is much taller then you would expect and with great photo ops.
