Bailey Falls is a wonderful hidden waterfall located in Hancock, Vermont. The waterfall has a total height of about 75 feet and it can be found along Robbins Branch. Robbins Branch features solid water flow year-round, but it is most powerful during the spring when the snow is melting. The months of April, May, and June are often recommended for visitors hoping to see Bailey Falls at full force. The waterfall itself drops in a unique formation consisting of great horsetails, plunges, and cascades.
Accessing the waterfall is relatively quick, but requires some bushwhacking. The waterfall is located in the Middlebury Snow Bowl property but sadly is not along any marked or maintained trail. Visitors seeking out the waterfall can park on a small dirt road found right off Vermont Route 125. After parking, the waterfall can be reached via a 0.10-mile hike that requires a lot of bushwhacking. Overall, the waterfall is difficult to reach.
