we enjoyed our hike into buttermilk falls, found the lower falls easy, then walked up to see the upper falls, could not find them or they weren't running, but the hike was interesting saw a quite a few washed out roads and bridges

One of the best natural spots in VT. If you like climbing and jumping off of rocks, do not miss this spot. It has many levels of falls and swimming areas. Not to be missed.

Stopped by here while staying in Ludlow. It was an easy walk/hike to one of the waterfall spots. The view was great and relaxing. A great short trip.

Photographers...a short walk from the road with gear..always a plus! Lovely cascades with varied rock textures and colors. Fall foliage time should make for lovely images...too early for our visit last week. There are 3 falls, upper, middle and lower...we didn't see upper but the other two are worth the visit.

Nice place to go swimming. Fun and pretty. You have to drive down a little road w/the same name and park where you can and walk into the woods just a tad to a beautiful hole and river to swim in

Really need location.. we visited Sept 16 and water level was low. Still a nice afternoon... wading vs swimming. With higher water levels would have been really great.

Easy to find, good parking, paths to all 3 falls, nice place to visit and dangle your toes in the cool waters, If you are daring, a cool dip on a hot day. Enjoyed a picnic lunch and the sound of the falls.
