Waterfalls

Garfield Falls

What a beautiful place to see! Take Magalloway Road 12.2 miles, then stay straight another 1 mile to a small turnout on either side of the road. The trail is to the left 1/4 a mile to the 38-foot falls. Bring your swimsuit as Garfield Falls is a great place for swimming ! You’ll need good footwear for fishing and hiking the rocks at the Falls site.

Beaver Brook Falls

Beaver Brook Falls is located 2.4 miles north of Colebrook or 10.8 miles south of Pittsburg on Rte 145. This lovely picnic spot is the perfect setting for a summer’s afternoon. There is a nice lawn and picnic area along with walking paths at the site of this 110′ falls.

Little Hellgate Falls

Little Hellgate Falls is a beautiful waterfall deep in the Great North Woods. Named “Hellgate” because many a logger lost his life here breaking up log jams. To get there, drive north on Rte 3 to Magalloway Road to the Buckhorn Road which is the second right off Magalloway Road (approximately 3 miles out). You will pass through a gate in 3-4 miles and the road becomes the Cedar Stream Road. Look for snowmobile trail #137 on the left. Park on the side and start down the trail. You will cross a snowmobile bridge and come to a second bridge. The trailhead is located on the left, immediately after crossing the second bridge. This is a beautifully done trail with log stairs and log benches. The trail into the falls is very steep so use care in this section. Enjoy the log bench at the base of the falls for a picnic lunch!

Falls in the River

Falls in the River is a beautiful, stepped waterfall in the Upper Connecticut River between Second and First Lake. Access is easy from Rte 3. From the North end, access the trail at Second Connecticut Lake Dam and follow trail 1.5 miles to the Falls. To access from the south, park off Rte 3 near Big Brook Bog Road and take the Moose Alley Trail to the Falls in the River Trail and then a half mile hike to the Falls.
