The 2.2 mile trail through the woods was very muddy and washed out by ate use. We hadn’t realized the road to the right of the sign was actually the “trail” back so next time we will likely just walk the road. There’s also a parking lot right at the falls. We enjoy walking but just a heads up for those that just want to see the falls!

Trail is completely washed out, though trail is wide enough that it is easy to navigate. It is a loop, but I would suggest walking down the road (which is part of the loop) both to the falls and back-the other side of the loop is all mud and doesn’t have any views. But the falls are definitely worth the hike/walk!

Tannery trail was spoiled by heavy ATV use. Ross Brook trail nice but not well marked.

The trail is not marked well - we parked in the designated area and started down what we thought was the trail, only to find out it wasn’t. Finally got there and started out. Washed out in parts. Not maintained well so you need to pay attention. Falls were great, would be even better in spring. Took the road back instead of doing the loop.

Lovely, lovely place but poorly marked. Be careful looking for this “trail” because there really isn’t one. There is one sign that says “waterfall” but after that it there is a 10 minute drive on a pretty sketchy unmaintained road. Don’t drive down here unless your car can handle off reading or you may get stuck in the mud. After the drive there is a gravel parking area that leads on a short, steep path that leads down to both amazing falls. Paths are slippery and steep but manageable so wear your hiking boots. Despite the sketchiness it’s definitely still worth a visit both falls were stunning. We had a great afternoon in this amazing spot!

We had a heck of a time following this trail according to the app. The trail that we ended up on was super muddy and more appropriate for off-roading than for hiking. The mud wasn’t the worst part— the area was infested with bugs who seemed oblivious to insect repellent. We eventually found our way to the falls which are spectacular and alone made the trip worth it!! On our way back, we used Ross Brook trail which was much better marked, primarily traveled along a creak and was very nice. The trail was dog friendly.

A sign at the eastern entrance to Tannery Road (where the Tannery Trail goes off to the left) says “Not Maintained - Drive at Your Own Risk.” As of July that means don’t try to drive to Tannery Falls on that road unless you have a vehicle with plenty of clearance. The road is quite rough with washed out sections and a high center and you won’t be able to turn around when you get into the worst part. However, the road (dirt) continuing east from the falls to Black Brook Rd. (which is asphalt) is in great shape, easy driving.

The falls are beautiful, but the rest of the trail is very muddy

Pretty muddy on the way in but we had the place to ourselves!

The road that the google maps directions took us was just completely mud and my car ended up getting stuck in the mud for over an hour. Make sure you have a big car or find better directions because we couldn’t even make it to the falls!!!

You can drive to the parking lot and walk down to the base of the falls; quick, easy and beautiful!

Both roads to this trail are either closed or not maintained in the winter(Dec-May). Beware. I plan to go back in the spring time when the road looks better.

I adore this trail. We've done it many times. We usually hike in with sandwiches and eat at the base of the falls.

Very wet trail...falls were very nice and worth the trip. Do the Ross Brook Trail and will make the loop trail worth it...Ross Brook follows the brook and us s nice moderate hike. Falls is what makes this trip.

Very muddy hike but worth it in the end.

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!
