This is a fairly easy hike on the Nipmuck Trail. There is room for about 3 cars at the parking lot on Iron Mine Lane. The trail follows an old road past the ruins of a large foundation (on the left). The trail then (~0.2 Miles) leaves the dirt road to the left beyond the foundation remains. About 0.75 miles into the hike, there is junction with the the red trail. It's a short hike ( 50 yards) from the Nipmuck to the falls. Pixie Falls is really more of a cascade (series of small drops) than a falls, but is well worth the trip. There are several large glacial erratics to view on this section of the Nipmuck Trail. The named erratic, "Ladies Room Rock," is just short of the Natchaug and Nipmuck Trails junction. The elevation change is gradual with no major climbs but plenty of ups and downs.Show more
