Very short hike but amazing gorge! We also on the way there right before we got to the start of it. Maybe ten mins saw our first bear!

I’m not sure if it was just lucky timing, but this place was magical today. Check out the photo I posted. Beautiful spot and we had it all to ourselves for over an hour. Make sure to go left when you hit the falls trail. Recommended.

The water fall side is beautiful, the river runs fast but is quiet and wonderful. Took my husband, dog and kids (6&8) and we had a nice afternoon.

Enjoyed this trail and scenery. Went past the falls viewing area. Trip down and back up was fairly easy, but muddy in spots.

An easy light trail down. Didn’t bring a swimming suit but wish I had! I would have gone again if my vacation was longer. Beautiful!

This is a lovely easy trail that follows a mountain brook and various small falls. The drive to the trail was beautiful! We even saw a black bear bumble across the road.

Beautifully maintained trail. most of it is relatively flat with lots of tree roots. it's really close to a step drop off at the beginning, so don't bring little kids unless they'll hold your hand firmly. great informational signs. This is right near mountain biking and the Catamount cross country ski trail. A great hidden gem of a resource. and it's a beautiful drive to get to the trail head.
