Little Cascade Falls


Little Cascade Falls is a seasonal waterfall located in Weathersfield, Vermont. The waterfall has a total height of about 45 feet and it can be found along an unnamed stream. This stream is extremely seasonal and it typically only features a small trickle of water flowing. For the best chances of seeing the falls in peak conditions, it is wise to visit during the spring when the snow thaw fuels the stream.

The waterfall itself drops in a unique horsetail formation. It drops over several steep rock faces. Visitors can scramble to its base to see all its glory.

Accessing the waterfall is relatively quick and easy. The waterfall is located in Mount Ascutney State Park which features a great trail system. Visitors can park at the Weathersfield Trailhead at the end of High Meadow Road where free parking can be found. After parking, the hike to the falls is 0.46 miles. Continue walking on the same trail for another half mile to find the large Cascade Falls. 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 Mount Ascutney State Park.
