Abol Falls (T2 R10)


Abol Falls is a beautiful and very remote waterfall located in Township 2, Range 10 in Maine. The waterfall has a total height of just 3-5 feet and it can be found along the West Branch of the Penobscot River. The West Branch of the Penobscot River features very large waterflow year-round and this means that the falls can often be seen roaring. At some periods of time during the year, the falls are more like rapids due to the large watershed. No swimming here is allowed considering how dangerous and choppy the water is.

Accessing the Abol Falls is relatively easy. The falls are located right off the side of Water Way. Visitors can park along the road and then admire the falls. There is also a small sandy beach just off the road which offers an even closer and clearer view of the falls. This is not the most impressive or photogenic waterfall in the state, but it is still a fun place to stop. Dogs are welcome to join in on the exploring too!

Be sure to also check out the nearby Abol Bridge for epic views of the Maine wilderness and Mount Katahdin in the distance. This is one of the prettiest areas in the whole state.
