A pretty popular easy hike to get to the falls, lots of people visiting when we were there with dogs and kids both. Hike is all on flat ground other than the stairs to get down to the viewing tower..... more »
The trail is well maintained and easy. It leads to a lovely waterfall. There are a couple platforms built to help you get good views and great pictures. This isn't a get in the water type of fall as the trail is to the top of the waterfalls.
I love this place and I have been here several times over the years, and every time is different. The short relatively easy hike in takes about 20 minutes following a very well established trail. You'll know you are getting close when you begin to hear the falls. The forest is beautiful on the way in and very peaceful. The falls themselves are amazing and the trail maintenance folks have built a few overlooks so that you can safely view the falls from different angles. The side trails lead up and down Moxie Stream for additional perspectives. A series of small falls lead up to the big drop, and the gorge continues to the streams confluence with the Kennebec River. A great hike for individuals, couples, and families as children of all ages should have little difficulty managing the main trail. If you're rafting, camping, or just passing through the area it is worth the time to stop in and take the hike. Easy to find from the road with free parking and no charge to hike the trail. Stop and enjoy the wonder that is Moxie Falls!
