Hike to Blue Falls & Healy Brook Falls

0.9 Miles Total - Out-and-Back Trail

Originally added by Brogan Brown

Two waterfalls on trail - what's not to love?

The trails are easy to find. The river goes underneath an overpass and both trails, on the other side. The paths are both easy to walk through. A beginner would have no problems. However, if you are bringing along children just watch out for the cliff drop alongside the path when going to Healy Falls. I would not suggest letting dogs off leash until you reach the bottom.

If you go to the right, you go to Blue Falls. People have gone swimming here. It is a nice little walk and the falls are especially nice after a rain.

If you go to the left, you go to Healy Brook Falls. The trail follows along the water's edge. It's an easy walk as well, but the views for this one are way better. The water flows down a steep embankment and in between two massive rocks that the trail follows. At the bottom of the falls here, there's a tiny spot that you could probably get into and cool off if you'd like. It looked fairly deep but it was winter when we did this hike.
