There is another trail access opposite the listed access here, if coming from Gifford Woods- at Thundering Brook Rd with an obvious trailhead. The trail might add .3 or .4 miles round trip for the journey and has a long boardwalk over beautiful meadows. The falls are beautiful, though difficult to photograph in the early evening due to being bright up top and dark down below. I would suggest an early morning photography shoot or on a very cloudy day.

Nice and easy family hike to beautiful falls. My kids had to add to the difficulty and climb to the top of the falls. Just a pretty on the top as the bottom.

A quick hike on a fall day. The pup had a blast running up the path next to the falls. A peaceful way to spend a Sunday in the fall.

Easy hike to a nice waterfall. The trail has a walkway for most of the hike.

Very easy. Not much water when we went. Due to the lack of rain this year.
It was a quick 10 minute walk. If you climb up to the top of the falls is pretty steep.

Very short, pretty walk along a well-maintained boardwalk. The falls weren't exactly thundering when we visited in August: the reason is the red building just north of the waterfall, which is a small hydroelectric power plant that diverts water around the falls. But that's interesting in its own right!

Beautiful! We pushed farther to explore more terrain and were very pleased!

Cute little walk. The falls aren't far and most of the hike is along a flat wooden walkway. The wooden walkway is well maintained and would be a good walk for younger kids and older, less mobile people. We took our dog and climbed up to a higher portion of the falls. She enjoyed playing in the pools below the falls. Really wasn't busy, even on a holiday weekend. It's a nice little stop, but nothing strenuous.

This is a great trail if you are looking for a quick get away. The falls are beautiful.

If you are looking for an activity to do with kids on a spring day this is a great short little trail, close to Killington.

I was at Thundering falls trail in early Nov 2015. It is a well maintained boardwalk hike through marsh, a short distance of uneven terrain, and up to a waterfall. Sadly, it was mostly dry when I was there, but it was still cool. The trail crosses a *very* short distance of the AT, which is kinda fun. This trail would be good for mobile older family members, kids, and as a quick photo stop.

I'd give this 3 1/2 stars. The trail to the overlook at the bottom of the falls is a boardwalk through a marsh with nice views of wildflowers and birds - to a gravel path. I could not find a trail to the top of the falls so I just followed the falls up. It was a steep climb for .2 miles. At the top there are a couple of pools that people were swimming in and even though it was a hot day it was cool in the trees. Up and back (without stopping) would be about 1 hour.

Can be buggy, but the falls are worth it. Great for kids, but watch them on the rocks.
