Description

Added by Ben Groski

Houston Brook Falls is a short hike that provides amazing views of the falls and on hot days, swimming at its base. This family-friendly trail is located near Bingham, Maine.

Houston Brook Falls is a 32-foot waterfall that flows into the Kennebec River. The hike usually takes about 15 mins roundtrip, but more time can be spent at the falls.  

The Trail

From the parking lot there is a small trail to the left. The trail is unmarked, but visible and easy enough to follow. You can hear the falls from the trail which aids in direction. The trail takes you to the base of the falls. The rocks are very slippery around the falls, so please avoid climbing over rocks along the sides to reach the top.

The same trail you took to get to the falls will take you back to the parking lot. This trail is dog-friendly.

Houston Brook Falls Reviews

These waterfalls were absolutely breathtaking. We went on a hot day in mid-late May and were able to swim in the water. Every time we looked back at the falls, we were in awe at their raw beauty. Can't wait to go back and bring more friends!

Absolutely incredible!

This hike was a great hike to do with people of all ages. We had good weather and a lot of fun. You can go swimming but the water was freezing (at least when we were there).
