0.25 Miles Round Trip - Out-and-Back Trail

Houston Brook Falls - Search Nearby - Added by Ben Groski

This waterfall allows for some fun times climbing around the rocks and swimming at its base.

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, but you can also reach the top by climbing over some rocks along the sides. You can also walk right up to the base of the falls but be warned, the rocks are slick and its easy to fall, plus you will get sprayed with water. The same trail you took to get to the falls will take you back to the parking lot.

Breathtaking falls

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!

Great Day Hike!

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).
