We hiked this in late July after a couple of days of rain. The first ~2.5 miles were very muddy through what seems like a creek bed. Gorgeous forest, though, and lots of frogs spotted along the way. The falls themselves are gorgeous! There’s a bit of a climb down and out again, but not too long and very worth it. We looped back on Tannery Road after the falls — a slight incline most of the way, and while it’s a pretty walk and a more direct route out, it’s not quite as interesting as the trail on the way in. I’d recommend taking the same trail, or one of the many others in the area, for the way back!

The first mile or so on Tannery Trail is quite muddy. I'd also recommend wearing bug repellent. Overall the the trails take you through some beautiful forested land. The waterfalls not only met but far exceeded expectations. Ross Brook trail was wonderful as well!

The falls are a five, two long cascades in a narrow ravine joining together at the bottom. Pleasant walk whichever path you take; recommend the Ross Brook Trail as part of a loop.

We took the trail up to the Falls, through the muck and the bugs, but also up and down beautiful terrain. It looks like much of the trail goes through what used to be a riverbed, so you may want to leave your trail sandals at home. Honestly, the hike was solid enough to keep us on our toes and keep our need for beauty satisfied, but the Falls themselves are otherworldly. There is a lot of scrambling/stairs when you make it up to the falls, so if you have knee problems, it may be best to drive up.

Can't speak to the full hike, but there is parking near the falls, it's a relatively short hike and easy to follow. Parker Brook Falls is just as beautiful, if not more beautiful than Tannery Falls.. and they're right next to one another.

Great waterfall. Be careful driving to the trailhead on the dirt road because it was really muddy after the recent spring rain. The trail was poorly marked, so I relied heavily on the All Trails map feature to avoid getting lost. Definitely worth it!
