Houston Brook Falls is a beautiful swimming spot and waterfall right off of the ME 201 highway. The waterfall can be easily accessed by a flat, 10 minute hike. Houston Brook Falls is a stunning 32 foot waterfall.

The best swimming spot is a shallow, rectangular channel just below the falls. Be careful scrambling on rocks, as the mist makes them slippery. The best time of day to visit the waterfall is in the morning, when it is lit up by sunlight.
