Hike to Glen Falls

0.75 Miles Total - Out-and-Back Trail

Originally added by Chandler Anderson

Very unknown waterfall that makes for great exploring!

Accessing Glen Falls may be a little tricky at first. Parking will be very minimal, you will park on Grist Mill Ln. Hop onto the road and you will see the trail map on the left side. The adventure begins when you cross the street and go through the gate with the yellow blaze symbol. Keep following the blaze for about 1/3 mile. The beauty from the woods to the waterfall makes for a great adventure!

Trailhead: 41.564833, -72.559000

Waterfall: 41.570500, -72.559333
