Moss Glen Falls


Moss Glen Falls in Stowe, Vermont is a stunning 125-foot waterfall located just a 5-minute drive from Stowe’s historic main street. The waterfall source is the Moss Glen Brook and the beautiful waterfall consists of plunge, horsetails, and a fan. It is often considered to be the tallest waterfall in the state of Vermont.

There is a large dirt lot along Moss Glen Road where you can park for the waterfall. The trail signage is poor, but it is easy to find by following the brook upstream from the parking lot to the falls. Hikers can either proceed left up the tougher rooty climb to the perfect place for taking shots of the falls, or they can go right to follow the river’s outer edge to the base of the falls. At the falls, be cautious of loose debris at the trail’s edge, which can be slick and dangerous. Hikers who are inexperienced should stay to the left of the falls. Ultimately, the trail to the waterfall is 0.5 miles out and back and it is rated as moderate. Dogs are allowed on Moss Glen Falls Trail on leash.
