Our family stopped here on our way home from Rangeley. It's a beautiful little gem hidden on the side of the road. Picnic tables, hiking trails, and a serene swimming hole naturally carved out of the cliff by waterfall. Definitely a must see year round

The falls are beautiful and there are great little outlets for swimming. There are some high slippery cliffs, so not my favorite place to bring small children.

Absolutely, loved this spot! My husband and I visited the falls early Saturday morning expecting to find people there, we were pleasantly surprised to find we were the only ones! We hiked up the falls and enjoyed the various swimholes. We will be back!
