Pockwalk Falls trail is a rocky former service road trail located in Hammonds Plains, Nova Scotia. The trail winds down a former service, to the Pockwock Falls watershed and waterfall. From here the trail can be followed further along the service road with caution, however the falls are the main feature of this trail. This trail follows a road which is not regularly monitored and can be dangerous to follow alone. This area contains live bait traps (see photograph) and pets should be kept in sight and on leash at all times. The bridge crossing at the waterfall is also in a state of deterioration and has a number of holes and should be crossed with caution. Parking Information: Parking is available at the small gravel parking area located on the side of the road at the trailhead.

The falls were really pretty, but rating lower because there is a section of the service road shortly after the bridge that is completely washed out, so we weren't able to get the distance we were hoping for. We would have selected a different hike for today as we were planning for more exercise, but still a pretty place to visit and will go back now that expectations have been managed.

Not a bad ride but lake view and water fall makes the ride worth while. Mostly service road ride. Close to home so nice one for me.

The falls are to the right when you come to the T 5-10 min walk in through the woods after the bridge.

Great walk. Was super icy. Stop at the bridge and walk in to the falls there. We keep right on going because the map told us to.

Check what kind of hike you're in for! Went in Feb and the entire road was slippery ice. Maybe bring your skates!
