I’ve been hiking up to Lye Brook Falls since I was a kid (now 66) and never cease to be captivated. Yes, you have to hike in to see it, but as hikes in Vermont go this is a fairly easy stroll with a real...More

I thought it was an easy hike before we got there. The weather was bad. We only met 5 people on our way in and out. Rivers ran fast because of the rain. The trail was muddy and slippery. We got a little afraid given...More

Easy to moderate hike with a rewarding view of the falls. Plan about 2.5 hours if you want to hike it with younger children.

Beautiful place, real contact with nature, peaceful and very green-colorful in autumn! The trekking is about 1 1/2 but easy to do it, and while walking through the forest make it pass really fast.
