A serene woodland walk to a spectacular 160-foot waterfall, one of the tallest in Vermont. The route to Lye Brook Falls along the Lye Brook Trail (blue blazes) is a wonderful half-day introduction to hiking. The trail is broad and follows an old logging road and a railroad bed. It climbs gently, gaining about 800 feet from the trailhead to the spur to the falls, passing through peaceful forest. It then drops 200 feet on a moderate incline to the falls. Save this hike for after a rainstorm, as the falls dry to a less impressive trickle by mid-June. The trailhead is on the southeastern side of the circle. From the trailhead, the path starts out over giant cobblestone-like rocks, but after a few moments, it bends to the right (south) and becomes a smooth woods road, where it is easy to move quickly if you are pushed for time.
