In 1978 Cascade Stream Gorge was listd in the Maine State Planning Office’s Register of Critical Areas because of its natrual, scenic and geological features incuding a stunning gorge that drops 90 feet into the stream. With 50 acres of steep forested land and over a 1/2 mile of frontage on Cascade Stream, this is a popular hike for summer visitors seeking a refreshing spracy of cool air, or lunch at one of the two picnic sites. Cascade Stream flows out of City Pond, which is just to the east of the property and was once the public drinking water supply for the Town of Rangeley.

Awesome short hike. Went in March, so the trail was completely covered in ice and snow. The waterfalls and river frozen over made for an incredible sight. We were lucky that snowshoe tracks made navigating the trail less slippery, but there are plenty of trees along the route to grab on to when balance feels precarious. If you’ve never seen the trail in winter, it is definitely worthwhile!

Beautiful and crisp day to view the falls and gorge after a snowfall.

My favorite place to swim, not usually crowded and so much to explore! The water is super cold unfortunately, but so worth it!

Grew up with this trail in my back yard. Use to hike it before it was open to the public. This trail is definitely one of the best places to visit two waterfalls in the Rangeley area.

One of my favorite trails in the Rangeley Region! Feature several waterfall drops, awesome fly-fishing and some great swimming holes!
