An easy family friendly hike that is 40 minutes away from Roseau. It leads you to a spectacular waterfall where you can swim and relax.

The trailhead to Spanny Falls is right off of Dr. Nicholas Liverpool Highway and is fairly easy to get to by taxi. It is about an hour away from Portsmouth and 40 minutes away from Roseau.

After you get dropped off the trailhead is to the left of the store. Getting to Spanny Falls is an easy 10 minute hike and is flat the entire way.  The trail is easily visible, but it may be muddy due to the rain so make sure you're wearing comfortable walking shoes that can get wet.

Once you get to the falls take a dip in and relax!
