Angel Falls is one of Maine’s most stunning waterfalls and it features a 90-foot drop. Many people believe it to be Maine’s largest waterfall considering it is tied with Moxie Falls when it comes to height. However, this is not the case, as Katahdin Falls in Maine is a whopping 710 feet taller.
Angel Falls got its name from the shape of an angel’s wing created by the cascading water during high water. The 90-foot waterfall is classified as a horsetail and there are some small cascades below it.
Off Bemis Road in Township D, you’ll find the trailhead and parking area for the Angel Falls Trail. Look for red blazes from the parking lot and follow a logging path across Berdeen Stream, then continue on the red-blazed trail to Mountain Brook. Before reaching the falls, the trail follows the brook upstream and crosses it three times (rock hops). Use caution when crossing streams, since the rocks can be slick and the stream can become even dangerous or impassable at high water.
