Fitzgerald Falls and Mombasha High Point Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"From the A.T. crossing at Lakes Road (Monroe Road), the footpath descends and crosses a wood truss bridge over Trout Brook. In 0.25 mile you will cross another brook; turn left and follow the brook through a hemlock grove. Because this area is frequently flooded, there is a blue-blazed bypass trail to avoid the crossing of two more brooks in wet weather.
The side trail ascends to the right through hemlocks and rejoins the A.T. after 0.1 mile (at Fitzgerald Falls). Fitzgerald Falls flows 25 feet through a rocky cleft. Crossing the stream just below the falls, climb steeply up rock steps alongside the falls. After 0.1 mile, cross a stream and a tributary before passing through a hemlock grove, and in another 0.1 mile, cross another tributary stream and a dirt road as you continue to ascend. At mile 0.75, pass some stone walls to the left. These are the remains of an abandoned settlement."
