Little and Big Niagara Falls Professional Review and Guide

"This is a fantastic, kid-friendly hike to dramatic waterfalls as the Nesowadnehunk Brook cascades over the rocks. Katahdin is clearly the star of Baxter State Park, but it’s by no means the only peak or excellent hiking route. Head southbound on the Appalachian Trail (A.T.) out of Katahdin Stream Campground and you’ll find Little and Big Niagara Falls.

The trailhead for Little and Big Niagara Falls is just across the Park Tote Road from the Katahdin Stream Campground. You start off on a nice hard-packed surface following a gentle rolling grade on a well-de? ned and well-marked trail. This is a great option for the day after Katahdin, or even two days after, as it’s a fairly relaxing ramble through the dense forest of birch, maple, and conifers."
