Honey Hollow Falls is a captivating waterfall located in Bolton, Vermont. The waterfall has a total height of 55 feet and it can be found along Preston Brook. Preston Brook features pretty good water flow year-round, but it really peaks during the spring when the snow melts. For this reason, many photographers and other waterfall lovers flock to the falls during the months of April, May, and June to see them roaring. That said, Honey Hollow Falls is a wonderful location to visit on any day of the year.
The waterfall itself drops in a lovely formation of plunges, horsetails, and cascades. There are several district drops that make up the falls. At the base of the waterfall, there is a pretty round pool. This is a great swimming hole during the summer months when the water flow is low.
Accessing the waterfall is relatively easy and requires a short hike. The waterfall is located in the Camel’s Hump State Park which features a well-marked trail and well-maintained system. Visitors can park at the Honey Hollow Trailhead located along Duxbury Road and then hike a half mile to the falls. In total, the hike out and back to the falls is just over a mile long and features 220 feet of elevation gain.
Ultimately, the waterfall trail is family-friendly and a great route to get some hiking in. Dogs are also allowed on the trail and through the entirety of Camel’s Hump State Park.
