Maine › Houston Brook Falls
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.
- Change of clothes (you can walk right up to the base of the falls and get sprayed)
- Swim Clothes and towel
