Little Abol Falls Professional Review and Guide

"Little Abol Falls is an easy walk from Abol campground. The trail climbs very little along its route through a hardwood forest. The falls are on one of the branches of Abol Stream. Above the falls, the stream tumbles through mossy boulders over smooth, orange granite. The falls drop 15 feet into a shallow pool of similar granite littered with rounded stones. It’s a picturesque falls and a good place to cool off on a hot day.

The several branches of Abol Stream drain the south face of Katahdin. The stream’s name is shortened from the Penobscot word “Abalajakomejus,” which roughly translates as treeless expanse—probably a reference to the slide Abol Trail originally followed. The slide is high on the face of Katahdin between the branches of the stream.The branches of the stream come together in a marshy area south and east of Stump Pond. The stream then flows south toward the west end of Abol Pond. The stream turns west, joined by Abol Pond’s outflow. It meanders through marshy lowlands from there to the West Branch at Abol Bridge."
