The Grand Canyon of Maine. beautiful stops along the trail, well marked trails. it's not easy, but it's not very difficult either. make a whole day out of it. I have hiked this trail dozens of times and I still keep coming back. Good for kids, dogs, adults, etc.

This place is beautiful! Gorgeous waterfalls, ample wildlife, and pretty scenery. It's long, but not too vertical. Not great for those lacking full mobility, especially in the spring. There are multiple stream crossings that require removing your shoes. Also, invest in good bug repellent!

Beautiful hike and the Rim trail is a must do, be sure to have a map or an understanding of the trails. Got lost towards the end and ended up lost in the dark. Thanks god for the very kind Appalachian hiker that found us lost and guided us almost a mile to where we could find our way. Did an 11 mile hike and would go again but plan better. Absolutely gorgeous and scenic. Loved it!!

What a phenomenal, scenic hike and swim. These are some of the coolest waterfalls I've ever seen, and swimming in them on a hot day was amazing. The trail is rated hard, but only constitutes that for a few sections of scramble. Upper body strength and stable footing is required to get back OUT of a few of the falls, but beyond that, a totally pleasant, moderate hike.

Will definitely be back with friends.

My 8 year old said "this is too easy". We were worried to bring the kids because other reviews said it was a really difficult hike and kids would have trouble. Views were less than spectacular. Don't waste the $12 per adult to take this walk in the woods.

Amazing trail. Rim trail follows along the edge of the gorge leading to one amazing view after another of the many waterfalls and drop offs. This trail is a must!
