Austin Stream Falls is a beautiful waterfall located in the remote town of Moscow, Maine. The waterfall has a total height of 15 feet and it can be found along Austin Stream, hence its name. The stream features a large watershed which means the waterfall can often be seen roaring year-round. That said, it is best to visit during the months of May through October.
The waterfall itself drops in a lovely formation consisting of cascades with a large and pretty deep pool at its base. It is unknown whether swimming is allowed or popular here. The pool seems like it could be a good spot to cool off. But it is rather dark.
Reaching the waterfall is a little challenging due to its remote location. Drive along ME-16 until reaching Dead Water Road, which is an unmarked and unpaved road. Then drive along Dead Water Road for 5.7 miles. A four-wheel drive car is definitely recommended. Once parking, the waterfall is just a few hundred feet from the road. Ultimately, it is a great waterfall to visit if you have the horsepower to get there!
Dogs are welcome to join in on exploring the falls.
