Scenic Vermont – A Portal To Help You Plan Your Next Vermont Vacation.

Home to Vermont’s tallest waterfall, Stowe has a vast network of popular hiking trails, including a variety of easy, moderate and expert trail options for all ages and abilities. Nestled among the stunning Green Mountain scenery are many breathtaking waterfalls that will transport sightseers to a realm of natural wonder and tranquility. There are three popular waterfall hikes in the area that are all easy to moderate trails. Check all three off your list next time you’re in Stowe. 

 

Moss Glen Falls

A short drive from Stowe’s historic village, Moss Glen Falls is the tallest waterfall in the state of Vermont, cascading 85 feet. The hike to Moss Glen Falls is popular due its short and easy terrain, easily manageable for anyone who may not consider themselves an advanced hiker. For most people, the highlight of this hike is the waterfall itself, which is only about a quarter-mile (approximately 10 minutes) from the trail head, but guests can keep going past the falls for a longer outing. Hikers can view and photograph the falls from both the base and a higher vantage point.

 

Bingham Falls

Located directly off Mountain Road (Route 108), Bingham Falls is another popular hike leading to spectacular waterfall scenes. The hike has quickly become one of the most popular waterfall hikes in Vermont due to its easy access, impressive geology and stunning scenery ideal for photography. The hike itself is only about a quarter-mile down to the falls, but it is steeper at the bottom and often can be wet and slippery, which is why it is categorized as a more moderate level despite it’s short distance. Proper hiking shoes with good tread are highly recommended.

 

Sterling Falls Gorge

Located at the end of Sterling Gorge Road, Sterling Falls Gorge is a short but informative, scenic hike around the outer limits of a beautiful gorge in the Sterling Valley. Although the falls are no greater than a few yards tall, the gorge consists of multiple waterfalls, cascade sets and pools. This area tends to be significantly less crowded than other waterfalls in Stowe and includes many signs describing the history, geology and lore about the gorge. Extensive hiking trails branch off nearby Sterling Falls Gorge, winding all throughout the Sterling Forest.
