“A short and flat trail with one destination--to see the waterfalls and go swimming.”— Meg Dyson
Family Friendly This is an easy trail leading to falls! It's a great short, flat trail for little kids! The trail is wide.
Lower Ammonoosuc Falls is a fast moving cascading falls surrounded by rocks. The falls form into a large pool that is very deep with clear water. The estimated depth of the pool is 15' in normal weather. It's a popular fishing and swimming spot in the summer time when the water runs a little bit lower!
