Best on a hot summer day. The water is spring fed and stays SO COLD! A very short walk from the church parking lot. You can hear it when you get out of the car. Short, steep trail to get to the water, but very...More

The falls are beautiful. Be sure to wear good walking/climbing shoes. It is slippery going over the rocks to get down to the falls. It is a peacefully unexpected oasis in the middle of Manchester.

A super short walk with my 7 & 10 year old. The waterfall is beautiful and my kids enjoyed playing in the water. I can’t wait to go back.

You can almost drive right up to this waterfall. Easy access - great waterfall year round. You park across from the church and the landowners are nice enough to provide a trail down to the falls.

Rutledge Falls is very beautiful. I attend the church across the street which is amazing itself. The waterfall is something you don't see everyday especially in the small town it is in. It goes way back on the trails, and is very pretty. The rocks...More

There are 2 ways down to the base of the falls. One would be considered very rough, but with the right shoes and CD taking your time, doable for adults. There is a short hike in option as well, and its flat to the water... More

The falls are actually on private land but the owners allow people to visit (there are signs posted saying this). Therefore, there are no set hours but it would be dangerous to visit the falls in the dark as the main trail... More
