This incredibly beautiful waterfall drops over 150 feet down steep rocky steps and is one of Vermont’s most well-known, and photographed, waterfalls. This is the longest Vermont hike in this book. Upon reaching Lye Brook Falls at 2.3 miles, you can stand on a rocky outcrop to get a view of most of the waterfall. Depending on the season, the falls can look very different. The falls are mainly large step cascades at the top and horsetails at the bottom, but they can take on various forms under different water flows. You can head down to the bottom just a few feet below the outcrop and, if you’re adventurous, follow the rough path partway up the side of the falls.
