Mead’s Falls


Mead’s Falls is a quaint little urban waterfall and train bridge located on Otter Creek near Rutland, Vermont. There is no official parking lot so most visitors just park on the side of the road.  A short path will take you to several different vantage points of the waterfall. There was some litter near the path, as it is a rather urban area, so definitely wear close-toed shoes. Otherwise, it is a short, easy walk for some nice views in a populated area. Mead’s Falls is about 15 feet in total and consists of lovely cascades.
