The Short  Hike

The best part about this waterfall is it's a short, easy hike to the falls! The trail begins by taking you through some wetlands along a stream on a nice boardwalk. As I walked along, I saw plenty of plants and some evidence of beavers, which are extremely common in Vermont.

Once you get past this part, you'll be able to actually walk along the brook. From this spot, you'll be able to catch a glimpse of the bottom of the falls going into the brook below.
