We parked above the falls in dirt lot then hiked the trail to the lower falls. The trail was very easy to hike and the view from the bottom of the falls was great. Bring a bathing suit. Then we hiked the upper falls to look out over the top. That was very cool and worth the hike! But be careful on the rocks.

Started from Jamaica State Park ($4 per person fee). The first 2 miles is an easy walk with great views of the rushing river. The mile trek up to the falls is steep at times, but manageable for hikers of all levels. The reward is a beautiful swimming hole and waterfall. Bring your camera and bathing suit! My 15# dachshund made the hike, so bring your pooch!

Started from Jamaica State Park in Jamaica, VT. The park is technically closed in winter but the trail is accessible for XC and 'shoeing. There is a small plowed parking lot. It's a total of 6 miles, the first 2 miles on an old dismissed railroad are flat and along the river, you come upon a marker for the 1 mile hike up to the falls, this part is a moderate ascent. The falls under snow are beautiful.

My sister and I hiked the trail from our campground. The first two miles were flat and generally easy. The last mile heading to the falls was a bit more strenuous, but completely worth it! 6 mile hike altogether.

We love to have a destination, and this was a good one! The hike was easy for our then 4 year old and the falls were beautiful
