Local Natural Wonders - Day 25
Local Natural Wonders Day 25 - Step Falls in Newry, Maine
Step Falls runs through a 24-acre preserve managed by the Mahoosuc Land Trust. This 1.1 mile out and back, forested hike includes waterfalls, natural water slides and swimming holes surrounded by slabs of granite. It’s like a natural water park! It is a fairly easy hike with a few rocky steep areas that require a bit of rock scrambling. The water is very cool, clear and perfect for a swim to cool off.
Weekends here can be busy, especially in the summer, so if you prefer encountering fewer people on your hike you may want to explore Step Falls on a weekday.
