This is a fun aerobic hike 4.2 miles through the woods to a waterfall. There were walking sticks someone left at the entrance sign which we used and were happy we did. There are a lot of rocks, roots and water so the stick was useful. Loved it..Beautiful and peaceful!

Nice hike with some uphill sections that are very manageable. It's gorgeous in the fall, some trees down and hugs a small river in the beginning, but overall gorgeous hike for a few hours to dip out of manchester and enjoy some nature.

We were traveling with 7 year old and only had running shoes so were not really prepared for a real hike. It was a little challenging in some spots but doable with our young child. Beautiful, unique fall at the summit.

As many have said this is a pretty hike, mostly uphill at a fairly steep and steady pace till the last portion. The trailhead was easy to find after being given directions - the closest big road is east Manchester rd. Once on it, look for glen rd. Turn onto glen and in about 100 yards or so you'll see...

We looked at the reviews and as I have bad knees we were not sure if it would be too difficult. However we started early and took the climb slow and steady. The return was harder on the knees than the climb. Well worth it a good walk

What a wonderful hike and beautiful falls. Well worth the trip and time. It's quite a rocky trail in spots. Nothing really dangerous.

We came to the Green Mountains to catch fall foliage this year, and according to trip advisor, Lye Brook Falls is one of the must see destinations, of course we packed our hiking gear and set off to see some water falls. This hike is considered as easy, the trail looks more like a atv route, or carriage road. It... More

The walk starts flat an simple for 15 minutes, after you have to walk up hill moderate for 40-45 minutes. Don't stop at the open space but go further for 5 more minutes and you will see the falls which are still running and looks nice.

Wonderful hike to a beautiful waterfall. Finding the trailhead was a bit of a challenge to our GPS but we made it. Don't be put off--we're in our 60's and we made it with no trouble. It's a beautiful hike. Do it.
