Codding Brook Cascades is a nice little waterfall located in Waterville, Vermont. The waterfall has a total height of about 10 feet and it can be found along, you guessed it, Codding Brook. This brook is very seasonal and it often flows strongest during spring when the snow melts and after heavy rainstorms. Considering the water flow is often greatest in the spring, the months of April, May, and June are recommended for visitors. That said, Codding Brook Cascades can be a fun spot to visit year-round. The waterfall itself drops in a unique formation consisting of cascades and slides.
Accessing the waterfall is a little tricky considering not many people know about it and no official path has been created. The waterfall is located in the Long Trail State Forest which does feature a nice trail system. Visitors can park at the Long Trail Trailhead along Codding Hollow Road and then hike about 0.30 miles along the trail. Although the falls can be heard from the trail, there is no good view. Hikers must take a short spur trail to the falls and eventually bushwhack to get a good view.
Ultimately, many visitors do not believe the waterfall is worth the hassle to locate. If you’re a diehard waterfall lover, then check it out! If not, skip this one.
