Took a little while to find it but look for the wooden walkway along Rt. 100 on the right goung south. There is a very small parking lot. . Nice short hike to falls! Friendly local took my picture!

Like Bingham Falls nearby, even though the hike was short, it was not easy. There was a very steep incline at the end where the best view was. We did make it up, though didn't stay long, fearing our 4-year-old would tumble down the ravine....More

This is close to Stowe, It is a short hike and traverses about 200 ft in elevation. Lovely view of waterfall.

We went on a cloudy day just after the rain, so the path was a little muddy, but the path had boards over the really muddy parts, so it wasn't too bad. The falls are only a short walk and they are beautiful. Definitely worth...More

A quick visit. Not crowded at all. Couldn't help but take plenty of pictures. Dipped my feet into the cool waters.

Moss Glen Falls is up a fairly steep trail. Lots of tree roots, but a beautiful river. We made it half-way but not all the way to the top. Not a good walk for seniors.

This hike is perfect if you have travelers with you that aren't fit for a longer hike. It's a very easy walk in the woods with a small climb up at the end to see the falls. The trail head is easy to find and...More

It's about a ten min. walk over mostly level, but somewhat muddy land. The last approach is all uphill- we joked about having to repel back down, so it's quite steep and we needed to brace against roots, hold onto trees... More

Yes and no. There are parts of it you can see, but that involves climbing down, closer to the actual fall. And even while you climb down, you still may not be able to see the whole thing unless you're willing to walk through... More
