Local Natural Wonders - Day 8
Local Natural Wonders Day 8 - Moxie Falls, Moxie Gore Township, ME
Moxie Falls Trail is an fairly easy out-and-back hike, totaling about 1.7 miles. It is kid and dog friendly (though dogs should be leashed). The trail leads to Moxie Falls Moxie, an incredible waterfall with a 90 foot vertical drop into a pool about 17 feet deep. Moxie Falls is one of the highest falls in New England. The falls are part of Moxie Stream which flows from Moxie Pond into the Kennebec River approximately 1 kilometer downstream the falls. Bring bug spray, pack a lunch and enjoy this beautiful spot!
The township of Moxie Gore is located approximately 50 miles north of Skowhegan on US Route 201.

This paved road is immediately before the bridge over the Kennebec River. There is a rest area between the Moxie Pond Road and the river. The trailhead is located approximately 2.3 miles further on this road on the left.
