My 8 year old son and I LOVED this hike!

Worth the trip! Many water crossings that take thought and would be troublesome/impossible in spring, some tricky parts with large rocks. Gorgeous waterfall!

Absolutely breathtaking! A short scramble, but worth it!

Have gone at two different times, warm summer and spring melt off. you have to scramble a small bit through the rivers so prepared to get wet at some point. The first time was epic. The spring melt off made it impossible to reach falls safely. Little bit of rock scrambling at some points. Dog had no problem first time but she is large and is able to manuver very well on many surfaces. Small dogs may have trouble. Slick rocks from moisture, just letting ya know. Definately worth the trip just don't go right after heavy rains/early spring.... my 2 cents.

Went in the late summer, so the water level was fairly low. It was still beautiful and a super fast hike for me and two young boys. The rocks can be challenging when wet.

Fun quick trail. It probably took us an hour and a half or so and we were dilly dallying. There is a bit of water crossing so I could imagine with heavy rain or the spring thaw it could potentially be hazardous to cross but we are not highly experienced hikers and had no problems. Our lab also came and it was a bit rocky but she did just fine even with her back pack on carrying waters. The falls are really beautiful, this place is a must go for a nice quick after noon hike.

Trail to the Fall is short, but very rugged. if you don't like getting your feet wet, don't do it! You pass through, over and around the stream in 3 spots. it's a beautiful area, and the Fall makes it worth the hike!! Oh, the dirt road is exactly that, dirt and not maintained very well. If you have,s low vehicle, take it slow!

This is a very short hike that is well marked with red blazes and low in difficulty except for the stream crossings that ends in a magnificent waterfall. There is very little steep climbing involved. Wear shoes with good traction that can get wet, or prepare to be sure-footed when crossing streams at least 4 times. Getting there takes longer than the hike itself.

Heading North on Route 4 turn left onto toward Rangeley Lake State Park (marked signs) onto South Shore Drive. At the stop sign cross over Route 17 and continue on the same road. This road will turn to dirt almost immediately. The first "major" intersection (stop signs for cross traffic) is Bemis Rd. There is no road sign. Turn left onto Bemis Road. Keep your speed around 20 MPH as there are people walking dogs, occasional big ruts and traffic approaching from the other direction even tough it looks like there shouldn't be. After 10.5 miles there will be a very sharp right turn with signs that say "Angel Falls" and "Private Property". This is property of the loggers, but it is public use. At the bottom of this steep gravel road will be a rock and a sand pit where you can park and walk in toward the area where it appears you could continue to drive (you cannot). From there you will find red blazes to lead you on the best route to the amazing falls.

I will post directions from Rte 17 if I ever come from that way, as I've had trouble finding Bemis Rd. from that direction in the past.

Great scenery, don't recommend for dogs or children if there has been a lot of rain. Great trail markers and worth the view at the end!

A trail for any age. We brought our 5yr old and 9 yr old and they both were able to navigate quite easily. There is some minor rock scrambling, but well worth the payoff at the falls. Bring a towel and the base of the falls is a spot to get wet!

A easy to sporadically challenging hike. Some areas of mild scrambling and some seasonal water crossings. The most challenging aspect is the potential for slippery rock surfaces. Overall a pleasant hike with a fabulous finish at the falls. Many opportunities for breaks and if desired a picnic lunch. Cool off by wading in the pools at the end of the falls. Defiantly worth the trip

this hike is average to moderate the trail entrance is very hard to find due to the lodging when you get down the hill off of Bemis Road there is a large rock boulder with graffiti on it take the road to the left down to the end, at this point you will park and walk down the trail to a bridge after the trail it gets confusing do the log that trail but at the end of the bridge you will be walking to your 10 o'clock position to the entrance to the trail, the trail is marked with red paint the trail itself is steep at some points with light climbing, transversing the stream, but in the end the hike was well worth it! The Falls are absolutely amazing

Difficult to find as loggers have chewed up the entrance to the trail. Otherwise well marked, moderate difficulty and short hike. Beautiful rock formations and wafers all.

Nice little 15 min walk in. Didn't even get our feet wet crossing the brook. I will be going back to see what it's like early summer.
