The Falls are scenic and provide a nice spray on a warm summer day. Go beyond the Falls to the view point above to get great views of the surrounding mountains

Keep going beyond the falls and you'll arrive on the Aster Plateau - great views over the lake. Also, about .5 miles from the trailhead are several ponds (on the right side) - look for moose who munch around there regularly.

The trail to Aster Falls begins at the South Shore Trail-head at the end of the lot by the general store and gently winds 1.2 miles up towards the falls. There are clear directional signs at each juncture. We passed by the lake, wildflower fields,...More

This is a must! It is an easy hike with beautiful views. The little river you cross was fun to step across the rocks. The waterfall is beautiful and a great place to rest, have a snack and take pictures.

We did this hike on a cool morning in July. Gorgeous beargrass to see making our way to the falls. Not too difficult of a stroll to the 20' falls but take the time and make the extra effort to get to Aster Park Overlook....More
