The ice walls that are built are very beautiful. They shoot down beneath the many few points of the gorge. Overall a very fun breathtaking experience. Be weary of parking though. There is a designated parking area but it gets full FAST. The people who...More

This place is trashed. Not worth it. Poorly groomed, muddy trails. The roads to the area are terrible and require AWD and studded tires.

What a hidden gem this place is! easy to get to, although mud season may be difficult. Not huge, but many falls and cascades to see, lot's of nearby hiking as well. Went after a week of rain and the water was running really well....More

This hike, which is short but involves some steep ups and downs, rewards you with great views of the rocks and falls.

We decided to try out this easy hike to Sterling Falls when we found the Moss Glenn Falls area was crowded with visitors. Sterling Falls Gorge was an easy hike with beautiful views all the way along the trail.

Don't miss taking this beautiful short hike in Stowe, VT! It is easy + well marked going along the gorge. I suggest keeping a hand on little ones though that might venture too close to the edge.

This was about a 45 minute loop and very easy. You walk down into the gorge, make sure to have anti slip shoes. It is about a 20 minute beautiful drive from Stowe. From there are a number of other trails.

We biked and the trails were true to the map's description. Summit was great, but for more advanced riders. Wish there was a bathroom or at least a compostable toilet. Great place to sit and watch water flow.

Yes. There were not many people there when I was but most of those people did have dogs, all of whom seemed to be enjoying the falls as much as their humans.
