Easy hike to see the falls, beyond the top is a rather boring trail.

I came straight down the gondola path and had to navigate a 20 ft waterfall. Killed my quads.

Very nice trail, a little short if you just want a hike, but if you’re going swimming or cliff jumping, the falls are perfect. There are a few small rocks to jump off, but you can also jump the 30 foot cliffs above the falls. Bring towels because you will definitely want to dry off that cold water before hiking out.

Awesome narrow valley (glen) falls and cascades. A really short trek in but you can continue up to the top of the falls and, if you want to go further you can continue down snowmobile path. A must see!

Note that the trailhead has been moved to Barnes visitor center. Great trails, but still some snow about 3000ft that was annoying. Amazing scramble to get to summit. Really like this introduction to the VT 4k.

A fun nice and easy trail. It would be great for kids as it has a sugar house and a cool gnome tree.

Easy hike. Once your at the top of the falls there is a cart road turned around there.

The falls are only about a 2 min hike in, and they are stunning! The rest of the walk is flat and mundane, with no designated end and no views, but if you like the woods and the river, it’s a great spot!

Easy and short hike with an amazing view!

Did this in February on snowshoes. Lots of snow, beautiful and peaceful. Has a few steeper spots for short periods but always levels out to let you catch breath. No view at top but beautiful wooded surroundings with brook along the way.

It was a nice hike but it was difficult to navigate the trails. They go by different colours (red, yellow and blue) but the map only shows orange and yellow. We found our way in the “free section” of the mountain but it wasn’t clear from the Adams camp map. When you go above Haul Road you need a day pass to use these trails.

Nice, easy trek with lots of options! Great for kids.

Nice, short hike, steep at points, but the falls are worth it. This trail is fairly popular, but there are other, less crowded cascades nearby that you can explore.

Loved it . It was challenging and fun.

We hiked with microspikes and it was Great! We stopped just below the chin because of poor visibility. Tried to go up Profanity, but after just 5 or so minutes, the trail was unbroken and very deep snow instead.

Nice trail with some terrific views, we met lots of people hiking or skiing on the trail, also three groups of ice climbers in the notch, nice relaxing day in the notch highly recommend.

Nice hike in the winter. A bit of scrambling to get up to the falls. After you pass the falls it's really just a flat forest road. In the winter seems like a snowmobile trail as well.

Nice winter hike. Snowshoes are probably recommended.

Short trail, little squishy in some areas but boards laid down on the trail helps. Have to climb at the end of the trail to get the best view of the falls.

5-star for the waterfall! In Summer you can walk through the steam to the falls.
3-star for this trail. We just walked the “trail” up past the falls (12/1017) in light snow. Gorgeous views of the falls, but the trail is a simple walk in the woods. No vista at the end, and no designated end point. The trail goes on.... so my advice is to explore around the falls primarily.

Great place to swim!

Very windy at the top with little to no visual when we went, but still a great hike. Definitely bring yourself lots of water! Due to the traffic coming up (as we were trying to go down) and grounds being wet, took profanity back down to attempt and bypass some people and to be more covered from the winds.

A more challenging, moderate hike. The first portion is very steep, then it escalates into more technical footing, rock walking, and stream crossing. An interesting and beautiful hike. Give yourself a little more time to complete this than you may have thought for 2.8 miles.

Awesome waterfall with a lot of places for climbing and lounging in the river. View from the bottom of the falls is well worth the walk down. Of note, the steps down to the bottom are steep and can be slippery when wet and covered in leaves.

perfectly nice and easy hike. falls are lovely but not most impressive in the area. make sure you go to the bottom of the falls too. There is longer hike you can do from the falls

short walk to falls. limited view from the top and so worth the equally short walk to the bottom to get a better view

Short hike to see beautiful falls.

Love this hike. Have done it twice. Bring lots of water. First time I did it with my husband and we went at a pretty good clip. Felt very accomplished when done and views are outstanding. Coming back was harder than going up as our knees were grumbling we are both over 50).

Second time did it with a bunch of girlfriends and it was wet and super foggy. Two girls turned around early on. The rest of us turned around probably less than halfway in. Must have good hiking shoes. Ideally you want boots as your ankles will be screaming at you on the way back.

Go but be prepared. You want hiking boots, water, something warm for up top plus a snack.
