About This Location

Benson’s Holes is a pretty little waterfall and great swimming hole located in Manchester, Vermont. The waterfall has a total height of about 10 feet and it can be found along Bourne Brook. Bourne Brook flows strongest during spring when the snow melts and after heavy rainstorms. Considering the falls are so short, it is best to visit during the spring to see peak flow. That said, Benson’s Holes is a great spot to visit year-round.

The waterfall itself drops in a unique formation consisting of cascades. There is a stunning pool located at the base of the lower falls which is a great swimming hole during the summer months. It is a bit of a hidden gem and a perfect place to beat the heat.  

Accessing the waterfall is super easy. In fact, the upper section of the waterfall can be viewed right from Glen Road. Visitors can park in the pullover dirt area along the road and then walk a few hundred feet to the falls. Overall, it is a great location for a quick visit and well worth stopping at!
