The falls are accessible in the winter, but frozen over. The trail is potentially hazardous because it gets packed down but if you step to either side, you'll go through the snow and its deep and it sometimes is crossing over the river. It's a beautiful area but like most of the forests in the region is devoid of large trees and scarred thanks to far too much logging. A real pity that the Rangeley Lakes Region doesn't put a moratorium on it and allow the forests to regenerate to their original glory. That's why I rated it a 4 star hike, not a 5 star.

Was there on January 10. Be careful on the ice around the streams as it is not solid at this time. Today, two people went through.....me being one of them. Snowshoes not needed, but spikes were helpful at points.

Lost GPS driving there, have faith it’s up there. Great, short hike, beautiful falls. Very lush ferns and moss even in November. (11/14/20)

Beautiful hike. The stream is filling out with more water and there is no bridge to cross over the first stream/river. There’s a tree down to walk over but a little tricky.

Stream was running. You have to cross it a few times this time of year. Quick 1/2 hike. Falls were icy and cool. The road in is 3.25 miles of bumpy but you can tell someone has been working on it. One bridge was recently rebuilt.

It just rained and was sprinkling during our hike this morning so the falls was really flowing! Had to cross the creek 4 times and was pretty rocky, but the trail is really well marked, was enjoyable

right now this is a pretty easy hike. multiple stream crossings but water is so low no need to worry about getting wet. last little bit was rocky. most of trail is more like a dirt road. you can actually drive part of what is marked as the trail. The trail is well marked and very beautiful for the fall colors. waterfall is a little sad, juat a drizzle but still enjoyed it.

Beautiful, but wasn’t expecting the last half of the hike to be so technical—it was entirely scrambling over rocks.

Nice short hike, but not much water in the falls this week! There were 4 stream crossings (all easy without much water).

Three miles of dirt road once you turn off Rt. 17 then left down a small hill to a larger parking area near the trailhead. The trailhead starts to the left and is marked with red blazes. This was a short, fun trail with stream crossings and large boulders to scramble over. I was there early enough that the trail was empty but as I was leaving about noon there were over 30 cars in the parking area and up on the road. The falls were beautiful, but would have been majestic if there were more water. Dry summer.

I hiked this with my 3 kids, 13, 10 and 5. I’m not sure why people say it isn’t for kids. We had a blast! The falls are so beautiful and it was fun crossing the water!

HikingGreat!Rocky

You’ll have to drive miles of gravel road to get to the parking for this trail but it’s worth it. There are 4 crossings of the river and it’s not for kids. We were starting to wonder if we should continue on but once you see the falls you know it was worth it. It’s beautiful.

Kinda hard crossing if you're not prepared and aren't expecting it. Definitely worth it though!
