Miners Falls Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"Miners Falls, a 50-foot free fall tumbling into a mossy nook, is a big payoff for a short walk. The visual beauty of the falling water is only part of the story here.

A shady alcove behind the falls, and potholes carved into the bedrock below, offer a kind of etch-mark history of this place. Access is by way of a smooth constructed trail that winds through a fine maple-beech forest. This is an apt prelude for the show to come."

Super easy hike to impressive waterfalls. Hike to the lower platform for the most beautiful views of the falls. This is really fun for the family -- no dogs allowed, though.

Nice long descent with ease to some stairs view lookout of the falls. Go off off the trail and lookout and free climb your way into the base of the falls for some really good rock hopping and a cooling mist from the base.
