About This Location

Royalston Falls is a spectacular waterfall located in Royalston, Massachusetts. The waterfall has a total height of 45 feet and it can be found along Falls Brook. Falls Brook flows strongest during spring when the snow melts and after heavy rainstorms. Although it is best to check out the waterfall in the spring, Royalston Falls is a great spot to visit year-round even when water flow is lower.

Royalston Falls is known for its unique formation. The falls consist of one single plunge which allows visitors to see the whole waterfall in one view and feel the true power of the drop. Photographers love taking pictures of this waterfall and long-exposure shots always look great.

Accessing the waterfall is relatively simple, but does require a little hiking. The waterfall is located in the Royalston Falls Reservation which features a well-marked trail system. Visitors can park on Athol-Richmond Road right at the trailhead. From the trailhead, follow the Tully Trail for just under 1 mile to the waterfall. The trail to the falls is family-friendly and a great way to get some hiking in. There are some long uphills, but nothing too crazy. Dogs are also allowed on the trail and through the entirety of the reservation.
