Explore Bartlett Falls

Details

Added by The Outbound Collective

Bartlett Falls is a beautiful waterfall in the gorge of the New Haven River as it descends toward Bristol, Vermont. Bartlett Falls also happens to be one of the most poplar swimming holes in the entire state!

The 14 foot falls plunge into a deep pool, perfect for cliff jumping. There is even a shallow end for younger children. Always take caution when cliff jumping. Make sure your path is clear of rocks. 

Direction: Turn east on Lincoln Gap Road from Rt. 116 a mile north of Bristol. The falls are visible on the right side of the road about 1/4 mile from Rt. 116. There is abundant parking along the side of the road.

Amazing swimming hole!

This is an awesome spot to spend an afternoon! The swimming area is great for families because there are plenty of shallow pools. As you swim upstream toward the falls, the river gets progressively deeper. There are a lot of cliff jumpers! You can go behind the falls here, which is really cool!
