Lye Brook Falls


Lye Brook Falls is one of the tallest and most beautiful waterfalls in Vermont. The waterfall is located in Manchester, Vermont, and drops an estimated 125 feet. The horsetail waterfall is accessible via the Lye Brook Falls Trail which begins just off US-7 on Glen Rd. From the trailhead, the hike is 4.4 miles out and back. The trail is very popular and is rated as moderate because it has 918 feet of elevation gain and some rocky areas. The journey to the falls is well the hike!

The trail is popular all year round, but especially during the spring when the snow is melting and rainstorms increase the flow of the falls. The falls are also extraordinarily beautiful when fall foliage is peaking!
