MORE WATERFALLS IN MAINE



The following is a list of additional waterfalls in Maine that I haven't visited yet or I have made a visit but elected not to create a separate page for the falls for one reason or another (i.e. it was located on private property, it was unimpressive, it was a dam, etc.). If you are looking for the main list of waterfalls in Maine that I have visited and documented, click here.

For lists of additional waterfalls that I still need to visit and document in the other New England states, click one or several of these links:

ME Albany Basins unknown unknown Not Listed rumored set of waterfalls on Albany Stream; "about 12 miles from Bethel"
ME Alder Stream Falls GREAT Alder Stream TWP Not Listed this impressive collection of waterfalls on Alder Stream Falls is on logging operation-owned property; there is a high probability that at least some of these waterfalls are located on PRIVATE PROPERTY; one report indicates that the main falls is 22-feet tall; access may be possible on the north side of South Road; if you look at Google Maps around these coordinates, you'll see lots of waterfall potential: GPS = 45.236500, -70.619175
ME Algers Falls unknown unknown Not Listed rumored waterfall on Algers Brook; there is a chance this is the same place as "Carters Falls"; no other information known
ME Allagash Falls EXCELLENT T15 R11 Page 62
A-3
access to these falls on the Allagash River is most likely only possible via canoe or kayak; there is a campsite near the falls; the falls are typically reached as part of a Allagash Wilderness Waterway canoe-trip; this is a 40-foot tall wild & scenic falls; there is a very slim chance you may be able to hike or bushwhack to the falls from Michaud Farm Rd (although that road itself may be PRIVATE PROPERTY)

this is a REVERSING/TIDAL FALLS and not a true waterfall; access likely via Basin Cove Road
ME Basin Falls FAIR Buckfield Page 11
C-3
I have visited, but it looked like PRIVATE PROPERTY in 2003; however, research in 2017 suggested that the public may now be welcome; if the public is in fact now welcomed, this waterfall may be promising; access is likely going to be possible via Paris Hill Road about 0.5-1.0 from North Buckfield Road
ME Bear Brook Falls FAIR Kingsbury Not Listed PRIVATE PROPERTY! skip this one; this 20-foot falls was open to the public, but nearby camps kept getting broken into so now it is supposedly closed off

ME Big Falls (Grand Lake Stream) POOR Grand Lake Stream Page 35
B-4
this is a set of rapids on Grand Lake Stream; reaching the falls may require running the rapids in a raft, canoe or kayak; it may be possible to reach the falls by a short bushwhack from Water Street (Big Lake Landing Road); I can see some houses near the falls on Google Maps, so there is a chance that there is no way to hike to the falls without crossing PRIVATE PROPERTY
ME Big Niagara Falls EXCELLENT T3 R10 Page 50
D-4
located on Nesowadnehunk Stream on the Appalachian Trail south of Daicey Pond Campground in Baxter State Park; these falls are 0.2-0.3 mile south of Little Niagara Falls; supposedly a must visit for visitors to the state park
ME Big Rapids POOR Allagash Not Listed a set of rapids on the St. John River
ME Big Wilson Falls GOOD Elliotsville Not Listed this 10-foot waterfall on Big Wilson Stream also has some cascades downstream; the pool below the main falls is supposedly a good swimming hole; access via short trail downstream from Elliottsville Rd when the road crosses the stream; you can also reach the parking area from Willimantic from Onawa Road; I've seen videos of folks taking watertubes down some of the rapids below the falls

this is a DAM on the Little Androscoggin River that may have some cascades below it; the whole site may not be accessible to the public as I believe the DAM is on private property; I know that you can't access the falls from Jackson Crossing Road because you will run into PRIVATE PROPERTY; however, there is a chance that you may be able to take a dirt road off High Street on the other side of the river and then bushwhack a short distance to the DAM and falls

ME Boars Head Falls POOR T9 R8 Page 57
C-2
likely to be rapids or small cascades on Mooseleuk Stream; initial research suggests that the falls require canoe-access; however, you may be able to bushwhack south from Chandler Brook Road or a dirt road that stems from that road; there is also a chance you could bushwhack north from Rocky Brook Road
ME Bog Falls POOR Shirley Not Listed looks like a small falls on the West Branch Piscataquis River; years ago, my research indicated that this was a DAM, but Google Maps images suggest otherwise; access may be possible by bushwhacking north for 0.1-0.2 mile from Maheaux Road
ME Bonny Eagle Falls POOR Buxton & Hollis Not Listed just a DAM on the Saco River
ME Bottle Brook Falls GOOD Kingsbury Not Listed there does not appear to be any trails to these plunging falls on Bottle Brook, so expect a short bushwhack of 0.25-0.5 mile; best access appears to be via ME 16; supposedly 20 feet tall

ME Brownsville Falls POOR Brownsville Not Listed looks like a small set of rapids on the Pleasant River; visible from Church Street looking north

ME Bucks Falls FAIR Willimantic Not Listed this waterfall is on Ship Pond Stream; access may be possible by bushwhacking off Earley's Camp Rd or Green Point Road; also known as Dearborn Falls; the best way to visit the falls may be to canoe or kayak up to where Ship Pond Stream dumps into Bucks Cove on Sebec Lake and then bushwhack 0.1 mile upstream
ME Bunker Stream Falls GOOD Shirley Not Listed there are several tiers of falls here and they look collectively impressive, but access requires bushwhacking; "nearly a dozen small cascades on a half-mile section of Bunker Stream"; I'm guessing you will want to try to park on or near B&A Railroad Road S just to the west of the Bunker Ponds (B&A Railroad Road S begins at Shirley Pond and heads south)

ME Carrying Place Stream Falls GOOD Carrying Place Not Listed this waterfall sounds promising, although it is only 8 feet tall; be prepared for logging roads, some of which may be poorly or sparsely maintained; here are some rough directions to get you started: "take ME 16 west from ME 201 in Bingham; right right onto Pleasant Ridge Road (marked as Ridge Road on some maps); drive on Pleasant Ridge Road until you reach a fork; take a right onto Carry Pond Road; drive on Carry Pond Road for about 8 miles and look for a 'Carrying Place' sign"
ME Carters Falls unknown Scarborough Not Listed rumored waterfall on Algers Brook; no other information known
ME Cascade Brook Falls GOOD Grafton Not Listed these are pretty and extremely tall falls when water levels on Cascade Brook are running high, but access to get close to the falls likely requires a short but potentially tough bushwhack; the falls can sometimes be seen from the road about 1.3 miles north of Mother Walker Falls on ME 26 in Grafton Notch State Park

ME Clinton Falls POOR Clinton Not Listed just a set of rapids on the Sebasticook River per the (sometimes unreliable) Maine waterfalls guidebook; also called Fifteen-Mile Rips; you may be able to see the rapids from Water Street and/or Main Street; there's also a chance you can see the rapids from the Pleasant Street bridge

reaching these extremely remote falls requires backpacking on Baxter State Park trails; you'll likely want to set up camp at Russell Pond and then do a day hike to Grand Falls from there; while you are in the area, you may want to also consider visiting Ledge Falls and Green Falls; exploring this area is extremely rewarding but it's also difficult to score permits from the Baxter State Park Authority since visitorship is limited
ME Grand Pitch (T5 R8) GOOD T5 R8 Page 51
B-2&3
this is a wide and powerful set of cascades on the East Branch of the Penobscot River within the Katahdin Woods & Waters National Monument; this river is popular with whitewater kayakers and this typically portaged; tentsites and a lean-to are nearby; the International Appalachian Trail either passes either directly by the falls or comes very close to it (I'm not sure which)

reaching these extremely remote falls requires backpacking on Baxter State Park trails; you'll likely want to set up camp at Russell Pond and then do a day hike to Green Falls from there; while you are in the area, you may want to also consider visiting Ledge Falls and Grand Falls; exploring this area is extremely rewarding but it's also difficult to score permits from the Baxter State Park Authority since visitorship is limited; the falls themselves are impressive and heavily enveloped in moss; Green Falls is one of the most remote waterfalls in New England
ME Greenwood Falls GOOD Bowdoin College Grant East Not Listed reaching these falls is likely going to include a light bushwhack off a logging road within the Ki-Jo Mary Multiple Use Forest; this looks like a fairly attractive falls and I also hear it's a good swimming hole; not well-known; a fee is charged to enter these private timberlands (bring cash)
ME Gretchen Falls unknown unknown Not Listed no information is known about this rumored waterfall
ME Guilford Falls POOR Guilford Not Listed just a DAM on the Piscataquis River

ME Holmes Falls FAIR Northfield Page 25
B-5
two falls on the Machias River here; the lower falls are just rapids; upper falls are 15 feet tall and could be promising; access may be possible from Shadagee Ridge Rd

ME Island Falls (Standish) unknown unknown Not Listed this is a rumored waterfall on the Presumscot River; no other information known
ME Jackson Sluice     Not Listed  
ME Jail Falls GREAT Grafton Not Listed this is a pretty two-tier horsetail on Bear River that requires a short but steep bushwhack; look for a parking pulloff that is 0.3 miles north of Screw Auger Falls in Grafton Notch State Park, walk back a bit on the road, hop over the guardrail and descend down to the river
ME Jay Bridge Falls     Not Listed  
ME Jewell Falls GREAT Portland Not Listed these multi-tiered impressive falls are located within the Fore River Sanctuary; requires an easy 0.25 mile hike from the parking area at the end of Hillcrest Avenue (which is off of Brighton Avenue)
ME Katahdin Falls GOOD T3 R10 Not Listed this towering series of waterfalls is located deep within Baxter State Park; there is no trail to the falls so access is most likely prohibited by the strict rules set by the state park; this is probably the tallest waterfall chain in Maine and certainly one of the tallest on the East Coast
ME Katahdin Stream Falls
(picture)
EXCELLENT T3 R10 Page 50
D-5
these impressive falls are visible from the final leg of the Appalachian Trail (take note that the A.T. is also called the Hunt Trail in this section); research Baxter State Park entrance rules before visiting since the parking spots for this trailhead are often completely filled up (make reservations online for a parking spot)
ME Kezar Falls (Parsonsfield) POOR Parsonsfield Not Listed there are two DAMS on the Ossipee River near the junction of ME 25 and ME 160...I wonder if one of these two is Kezar Falls?
ME Kingsbury Stream Falls FAIR Abbott Not Listed very small falls on Kingsbury Stream both upstream and downstream from ME 15 (all falls should be visible from the bridge); even in high water conditions, these falls rarely reach 4 or 5 feet tall; this may also be called Kingsbury Falls (although there is also a chance that Kingsbury Falls is another secret waterfall)
ME Leavitt's Falls unknown unknown Not Listed rumored waterfall on the Presumpscot River; could be a DAM or it could have been drowned by one

ME Leeman Brook Falls GOOD Willimantic Not Listed 20 feet tall main falls and 5-foot tall upper falls; according to one source the falls are "next to the Leeman Brook shelter on the Appalachian Trail, 3.0 miles east of the AT trailhead in Monson. This is a nice waterfall in spring high water. At other times it reduces to a trickle."; the same source also states that "In addition to a 20 foot cascade in the small gorge next to the Leemen Brook shelter, Leeman Brook also has a nice slide falls about 0.3 miles above the Elliotsville Road, with a decent ten foot cascade"
ME Lewiston Falls
(picture)

ME Little Abol Falls GOOD Mount Katahdin Page 50
D-5
this is an attractive 15-foot waterfall that dumps into a small pool; popular with campers staying at Abol Campground in Baxter State Park; reseach Baxter State Park entrance rules on the website of the Baxter State Park Authority before visiting since the trailhead that is used to visit these falls is used to hike Katahdin and parking spots are extremely limited
ME Little Allagash Falls FAIR Eagle Lake Page 55
D-4
the Maine Delorme Atlas & Gazetteer says this waterfall on the Allagash River is a "four yard drop over outcrop into pool. Highly scenic area. Canoe access only", but their information is occasionally incorrect in regards to waterfalls; you may be able to bushwhack to the falls from Narrow Pond Road, but I'm just not sure of that; GPS = 46.326331, -69.450821
ME Little Ambejackmockamus Falls POOR T3 R11 Page 50

just a set of rapids on the wild West Branch of the Penobscot River; run by rafts on whitewater rafting trips
ME Little Boy Falls FAIR T5 R5 Page 28

ME Little Falls (Lower Cupsuptic) FAIR Lower Cupsuptic Not Listed appears to be a set of small cascades on the Cupsuptic River; you may be able to bushwhack to the falls off the "Monton Cutoff" road, but it is very possible that at least once side of the river here is PRIVATE PROPERTY; GPS = 45.032228, -70.855535
ME Little Falls (T25 MD) POOR T25 MD Page 25

D-4
the Maine DeLorme Atlas & Gazetteer states the following about these falls on Nesowadnehunk Stream: "Main falls, vertical 4 yard drop; Chute above, from granite outcrop. Trail along E bank. Picturesque spot"; combine with Big Niagara Falls; read about Baxter State Park entrance procedures before attempting to visit
ME Little Wilson Falls (Upper Falls) GREAT Elliotsville Not Listed these impressive falls on Little Wilson Stream are supposedly located directly on the Appalachian Trail, but I have so far been unable to find them; I'll be going back in 2017 to try to find this one, along with Little Wilson Falls (Lower Falls), which is supposedly seen en route to the upper falls; bring a good (and updated) map if you plan on trying to find them yourself; a trail map can be found here; while in the area, also visit Big Wilson Falls
ME Livermore Falls POOR Livermore Not Listed just a DAM on the Androscoggin River
ME Logan Brook Falls FAIR TB R11 Not Listed near the Logan Brook lean-to on the Appalachian Trail; the easiest access appeasr to be by hiking south on the A.T. from Logan Brook Road within the Ki-Jo Mary Multiple Use Forest; the road to the trailhead may be difficult and potentially only suitable to 4WD, high-clearance vehicles; the hike to the falls is estimated at 1.6 miles one-way; if you have the time, continue hiking south on the A.T. to the summit of White Cap Mountain, which provides one of the finest scenic views in Maine
ME Long Falls POOR T3 R4 Page 29
B-5
this is a DAM at the northern tip of Flagstaff Lake on the Dead River; there are some rapids and small cascades about 0.35 mile downstream of the DAM, and you may be able to access them by bushwhacking a short distance from Long Falls Dam Road (assuming that road is open to the public)
ME Lower Falls GOOD Moro Page 52
A-3
access to these falls on East Hastings Brook appears to be challenging, as there is only logging roads in this area; I would start with exploring Jackson Sluice Road and bushwhacking from there; GPS = 46.152806, -68.306345
ME Lower Gauntlet Falls FAIR TB R10 Not Listed there are three waterfalls on the East Branch of the Pleasant River in TB R10 township, and their order from north to south is: Gauntlet Falls, Lower Gauntlet Falls (0.2 miles below Gauntlet Falls) and the 20-foot Mud Gauntlet Falls; the falls all sit within the KI-Jo-Mary Multiple Use Forest (an access fee is charged; bring cash); be prepared for possible poor road conditions; there are several campsites nearby available for use; the Jo-Mary Checkpoint
ME Magic Falls / Magic Hole POOR Unknown Not Listed these are class IV/V rapids that are run on extremely popular Kennebec River whitewater rafting trips; I know there is trail access to the falls somewhere because the rafting outfitters shoot photographs of rafters heading down the falls, but the question is whether or not the road and trail cross PRIVATE PROPERTY or not
ME Mahoosuc Notch Falls FAIR Unknown Not Listed this is a rumored 200-foot plus tall chain of cascades and slides that is mentioned in the (sometimes unrealiable) Maine waterfalls guidebook; the falls are supposedly seasonal and require a hike or bushwhack of just under 1.0 mile one-way; it is likely that there is an alternative name for these falls that is more commonly used than "Mahoosuc Notch Falls"; the falls are likely to be very seasonal; all of this is yet to be verfied/confirmed
ME Mallison Falls POOR Gorham & Windham Not Listed this is a a DAM on the Presumpscot River; it should be clearly visible from Mallison Street looking southeast
ME Man of War Brook Falls / Man o'War Brook Falls FAIR Mount Desert Not Listed this is a seasonal falls on Man O' War Brook that dumps directly into Somes Sound; access from parking area off ME 102; connect Man O’ War Brook Fire Rd with Acadia National Park hiking trails; could be impressive in high water conditions

ME Milford Falls POOR Milford Not Listed just a DAM on the Penobscot River
ME Mill Brook Falls unknown Pleasant Ridge Not Listed rumored small cascades on Mill Brook off Carry Pond Road, which itself is off Pleasant Ridge Road; a short hike off 0.1 mile or less is supposedly required; while in the general area, also visit Houston Brook Falls and Carrying Place Stream Falls
ME Millinocket Falls POOR T8 R8 Page 57
D-2
this is a class III rapid on either the Aroostock River or Millinocket Stream (I can't figure out which and there's a chance the stretch of river is actually referred to as both); reaching these falls is likely going to require a bushwhack; whitewater kayakers often run these rapids in spring and early summer
ME Mohawk Rapids POOR Lincoln Not Listed this is a set of rapids on the Mattawamkeag River; also called "Cannibal Rapids" for who knows what (potentially intriguing) reason
ME Monroe Falls FAIR Monroe Not Listed this is a series of small falls on Marsh Stream, each of which is supposedly under 4 feet tall; a short walk is supposedly required; access to the falls is likely to be either via Stream Road or ME 139 (East Main Street); GPS = 44.614930, -69.015461
ME Moody Falls FAIR Ogunquit / Wells Not Listed these falls on the Ogunquit River are only feet from the Atlantic Ocean; 6 feet tall; there is a good chance that the falls are located on PRIVATE PROPERTY, although you may be able to see the falls from a distance behind the Ogunquit River Inn propety in Wells
ME Morrison Brook Falls FAIR Sebec Not Listed 10-foot cascade on Morrison Brook; I suspect but am not 100% sure that the falls are a few hundred feet south of where ME 6/16 cross Morrison Brook; you can see some whitewater on Google Maps (45.236867, -69.049589), so perhaps this is where the falls are?; this is not the same Morrison Brook that Kees Falls is on
ME Mother Walker Falls POOR Grafton Page 18
E-1
the exact location of Mother Walker Falls is a bit of a mystery; there are some cascades that are heavily obstructed by boulders at the top of Mother Walker Gorge, and there are also some small falls a few 1/10ths of a mile dowstream; the marked trailhead can be found on ME 26 in Grafton Notch State Park (west of Screw Auger Falls); overall, I would say skip this one
ME Mud Gauntlet Falls GOOD TB R10 Page 42
C-4
there are three waterfalls on the East Branch of the Pleasant River in TB R10 township, and their order from north to south is: Gauntlet Falls, Lower Gauntlet Falls (0.2 miles below Gauntlet Falls) and the 20-foot Mud Gauntlet Falls; the falls all sit within the KI-Jo-Mary Multiple Use Forest (an access fee is charged; bring cash); be prepared for possible poor road conditions; there are several campsites nearby available for use; the Jo-Mary Checkpoint
ME Mud Lake Falls POOR Forest City Not Listed just a set of rapids on the Saint Croix River

ME Nasons Mills FAIR Limington Not Listed appears to be small cascades on the Little Ossipee River; some of the falls may be visible from Sand Pond Road/Millturn Road; to get close to the falls, you may need to bushwhack from Beaver Berry Road; likely to be the same place as "Chases Falls"
ME Nesowadnehunk Stream Falls FAIR T2 R10 Not Listed this extremely fun natural waterslide is found at the mouth of Nesowadnehunk Stream as it dumps into the West Branch of the Penobscot River; the waterslide is often enjoyed by guests of commercial whitwater rafting trips down the West Branch of the Penobscot River, but you should also be able to visit the waterslide from the Appalachian Trail; I am not sure if the Appalachian Trail passes directly by the falls, or if you have to bushwhack slightly west of it
ME New Portland Falls POOR New Portland Not Listed just a set of rapids on the Carrabassett River
ME Norridgewock Falls POOR Norridgewock Not Listed most likely tiny cascades and/or rapids on the Kennebec River; no single drop is likely to be over 2 or 3 feet tall

ME Norway Falls FAIR T4 R9 Page 51
B-1
this is likely to be rapids or small cascades on Wassataquiok Stream; these extremely remote falls lie within the boundaries of within in Baxter State Park, but there are no trails to them; reaching these remote falls would likely require a bushwhack, which may or may not be permitted by the strict rules of the state park; this waterfall likely goes several years or even decades without seeing any visitors; GPS = 46.005870, -68.844385
ME Numberall Dam POOR Sangerville Not Listed this is a DAM on Carleton Stream; the DAM is visible from Pine Street; GPS = 45.164858, -69.356933

ME Old Roll Dam Falls POOR Seboomook Page 49

ME Old Town Falls POOR Old Town & Milford Not Listed just a DAM on the Penobscot River; these falls would only be a REVERSING / TIDAL FALLS falls if the DAM was ever to be removed
ME Orin Falls POOR T4 R8 Page 51
C-2&3
looks like just a small set of cascades per photographs I found on a Google search; Wassataquoik Stream; per Google Maps, a dirt road comes within 200 feet of the falls; per the Restore.org website, directions are as follows: "Follow the International Appalachian Trail past the Barnard Mountain spur trail another 2 miles to a junction with the Orin Falls Trail. At Mile 15.5 on the Loop Road drive a side road north about 2.5 miles. Park near the IAT. A trail leads northwest along Wassataquoik Stream for several miles to the falls (rapids with huge boulders).

ME Pierce Pond Stream Falls GOOD Carrying Place Not Listed there are supposedly several falls on Piece Pond Stream that can be explored from the Appalachian Trail near the Kennebec River crossing; I'm not sure if the falls are closer to the Kennebec River, or if they are closer to the southern end of Pierce Pond; an overnight shelter near Piece Pond is available for backpackers (free; first come, first-served)
ME Pockwockamus Falls POOR T2 R10 Page 50
E-5
just a set of rapids on the West Branch of the Penobscot River
ME Pollywog Gorge GOOD Rainbow or T2 R12? Page 50
E-2
I suspect there are three falls on Pollywog Stream - an upper falls near Pollywog Pond, the main falls within Pollywog Gorge itself and a lower falls; the Appalachian Trail follows Pollywog Stream, but I'm not sure if it visits all three falls or if some bushwhacking is involved
ME Pond Pitch POOR T5 R8 Not Listed appears to be rapids or a small set of cascades on the East Branch of the Penobscot River; access may be possible from the end of Eagle Lake Tote Rd

B-3
short plunge and horsetail waterfall on the Red River; access is most likely off Hewes Brook Road; you might as well also try to find Rocky Brook Falls while in the area
ME Redington Pond Falls GREAT Redington Page 29
E-2
these impressive falls are estimated to be more than 300 feet tall but are located on PRIVATE PROPERTY; the falls are located deep on U.S. Navy-owned property, and odds are very good they will notice (and be angry) if you trespass here; perhaps one day the public will be allowed to visit the falls?
ME Ripogenus Gorge & Falls POOR T3 R12 & T3 R11 Page 50
D-3

this is a series of rapids and small cascades on the West Branch of the Penobscot River below the Ripogenus Dam; this gorge is frequently run by whitewater rafting companies

ME Rocky Brook Falls GREAT T15 R8 Page 63
A-3
this is a very scenic 27-foot tall drop on Rocky Brook near the top of northern Maine; basd on this website, it looks like there is campsite near the falls: http://www.northmainewoods.org/maps/fpc.html; here are some rough directions I received: "trail head at Hewes Brook, around 15 miles out (along a dirt road I presume???), maybe 1/2 mile hike down to the falls."; you might as well also try to find Red River Falls while in the area
ME Rolling Dam Brook Falls FAIR Gardiner Not Listed I used to think these falls on Rolling Dam Brook were on PRIVATE PROPERTY, but perhaps they are not? a recent Google search indicates that there may be public trails here; Does anyone know? I see a white blob on Google Maps (44.186593, -69.791115) that could indicate the presence of a set of falls, but I'm not sure if that's it though
ME Saccarappa Falls POOR Westbrook Not Listed this is a DAM on the Presumpscot River; viewable from Bridge Street
ME Saco Falls FAIR Columbia Not Listed the (sometimes unreliable) Maine waterfalls guidebook states that these falls on the Pleasant River feature "two high-volume drops of ten feet and a narrow flume"; the trailhead is supposedly on Hills Beach Rd and the hike is estimated at 0.75-0.8 mile each way; however, there is no "Hills Beach Rd" in Columbia or Columbia Falls, so I highly suspect this entry an error of some sort within the Maine waterfalls guidebook; does anyone have any information on this rumored falls?
ME Saco River Falls POOR Biddeford Not Listed I can see there are two DAMS on the Saco River here, but there are some cascades downstream of one of the DAMS that may be worth seeing; GPS = 43.494847, -70.452607
ME Salmon Falls / Salmon Falls Dam POOR Bangor & Brewer Not Listed I suspect that this was one of the two DAMS on the Penobscot River that was removed in or around 2015; if there was a waterfall here, it was either created by that DAM or it existed before a DAM downstream flood it
ME Sarampus Falls FAIR Alder Stream Page 28

ME Seboomook Falls unknown Seboomook Lake Not Listed this waterfall of unknown scenic quality on the West Branch of the Penobscot River is about 0.75 miles downstream and east of Seboomook Lake; access may be possible by hiking or bushwhacking from Seboomook Dam Road (you should also be able to see the falls from a distance from one point on the road); based on Google maps, it seems like the falls are two-tiered; GPS = 45.915254, -69.717756
ME Sebec Falls POOR Sebec Village Not Listed just a DAM per the (sometimes unreliable) Maine waterfalls guidebook
ME Seven Falls GOOD Peru Not Listed impressive series of waterfalls on Spears Stream (although I have seen some references to Sawyer Brook, Google Maps suggests its Spears Stream); per the www.geocaching.com website: "Several large scenic waterfalls on a small mountain stream flowing though a steep ravine. Careful with little ones, large drop at top falls. Venture down through the ravine to discover the other 2 scenic falls.Top falls is 12 yard total with two 6 yard drops below."; access appears to be possible via Dickvale Road or Mary Turner Road, although there is a good chance that the falls are surrounded by PRIVATE PROPERTY; GPS = 44.471016, -70.501841
ME Shadagee Falls POOR Jim Pond Page 29
A-1
this is a 2-3 foot tall set of rapids on the North Branch of the Dead River; a bushwhack heading due east for 0.1 mile from the junction of Perkins Road & ME 27 seems necessary to reach the falls; these rapids are a few miles downstream of Sarampus Falls; GPS = 45.266101, -70.566611
ME Shirley Gorge (Lower Falls) GREAT Shirley Not Listed various falls and cascades below a DAM on Shirley Pond; I suspect that a bushwhack is involved to visit all of the falls here; the upper falls are supposedly 35 feet tall and are about 300 feet upstream from the 35 foot tall lower falls

GOOD Limington Page 4
D-5
I am hearing conflicting reports that this pretty and wide 6-foot falls is located on PRIVATE PROPERTY; does anyone know if the public is able to see these falls from a legal and safe spot? this waterfall was described in the 1st edition of the New England Waterfalls guidebook but was left out of the 2nd; access to the falls was previously via a parking area on ME 11; you may be able to see the falls from the ME 11 bridge (Main Street; bring binoculars); GPS = 43.790961, -70.661866
ME Steep Falls (Standish) POOR Standish Not Listed some sources say this is a DAM on the Presumpscot River, while other sources say these are just rapids; I need to do more research here, but perhaps this is the DAM that can be seen on Google Maps at these coordinates: GPS = 43.830147, -70.455021

ME Thompson Brook Falls EXCELLENT Elliotsville Not Listed there are several scenic drops to be found here if you are willing to entertain a tough 0.25-0.50 mile bushwhack; to reach the falls, I believe you have to hike along the Appalachian Trail for about 3 miles and then bushwhack north up Thompson Brook; the 40-50ft upper tier of the upper falls are "located about 0.4 miles west of the Appalachian Trail's crossing of Thompson Brook. You have to approach this from the south side. There is another pretty falls 0.2 mile downstream"
ME Thorn Brook Falls unknown Kingsbury Not Listed this is a rumored waterfall on Thorn Brook; no other information known

ME Toenail Ridge Falls GOOD Alder Stream Not Listed this series of waterfalls on Alder Stream is included as a chapter within the (sometimes unreliable) Maine waterfalls guidebook; that guidebook indicates that there are five sets of falls here; what I am not sure of, however, is if this waterfall is different than Alder Stream Falls or not; the directions in the Maine waterfalls guidebook are extremely poor, so finding the exact location of these falls may require some adventuring
ME Topsham Falls POOR Topsham Not Listed this is a DAM on the Androscoggin River, which also has a cascade a short distance below it; I'm 95% certain this is the DAM that you can see from ME 201 (Main Street); this may be the same thing as Brunswick Falls; if I'm correct, then the GPS = 43.921319, -69.967808
ME Trafton Falls POOR Unknown Not Listed tis is just a DAM per the (sometimes unreliable) Maine waterfalls guidebook, however I have seen some pictures that make it look like these might be small cascades; there is a fair chance this is located under the ME 15 bridge on Kingsbury Stream in Abbot; I need to do more research here

ME Valley Brook Falls FAIR Dixfield Not Listed research indicates this waterfall is only a short hike or bushwhack from a parking area that is about 0.5 miles down Tucker Valley Brook Rd from Severy Hill Road; it is very possible that these falls are located on PRIVATE PROPERTY though; reportedly 30-feet tall
ME Vaughn Stream Falls GREAT Elliotsville Not Listed this is an attractive 20-foot tall cascade on Vaughn Stream with more smaller cascades upstream; the falls can supposedly be seen from the Appalachian Trail; bring a good road and trail map as this is a rather remote area

HOW CAN I FIND EVEN MORE WATERFALLS?

If you want to try to discover even more waterfalls, here are some research tips. I use these same tips to help find more waterfalls for this site:
  • Scan through in-circulation and out-of-print waterfall and hiking guidebooks; try to obtain copies of out-of-print books through used-book markets like half.com, or by searching through the Google Books website.
  • Review these two great websites: World Waterfall Database and Northeastern Waterfalls.
  • Scan paper and online maps for towns and cities that have a “Falls Road” or "Cascade Road".
  • Look at topo maps to see where rivers drop dramatically in elevation in a short distance. Then either review that area on Google Maps (using its terrain feature) or Google Earth, or go actually hike or bushwhack up and down those rivers.
  • Examine both current and historical trail maps (including those 100+ years old because many waterfalls become "lost" over time).
  • When visiting waterfalls and swimming holes, talk to the local residents and ask if they know of any others nearby.
  • Scan through Flickr groups that focus on waterfalls or photography of a specific region and/or state.
  • Search Google by town or region
    • i.e. Danvers, Massachusetts waterfall
    • i.e. waterfalls near Danvers, Massachusetts
    • i.e. waterfalls of the Berkshires
    • i.e. best waterfalls in Maine
    • i.e. swimming holes Rangeley Lake
    • i.e. top waterfalls in Rutland county
  • Search Google by nature park
    • i.e. waterfalls of Acadia National Park
    • i.e. Baxter State Park waterfalls
    • i.e. swimming holes White Mountain National Forest
    • i.e. waterfalls Green Mountain National Forest
  • Search Google by river, brook or stream
    • i.e. "Halfway Brook" waterfall
    • i.e. "New Haven River" cascade
    • i.e. "Nancy Brook" falls
  • Follow waterfall-related Facebook “pages” and “groups”.
  • Talk to local nature photographers and/or follow their photography or hiking blogs.
  • Find people on Facebook or hiking forums who purposely seek out off-the-beaten-path places and read about their adventures.
  • Visit an existing waterfall and hike or bushwhack both upstream and downstream of the main waterfall for more waterfalls.
  • Search for old waterfall postcards, especially at antique stores.
  • Look through Delorme's Atlas & Gazetteers, looking for marked waterfalls or symbols that represent waterfalls.
  • Periodically try to revisit waterfalls that are closed to the public. While odds are good that the falls will still be off-limits to the general public, there is always a chance that the land changed hands and is now open to visitors.

Waterfalls, swimming holes, and hiking can be extremely dangerous. Hundreds of people have been injured or killed in the waterfalls and swimming holes of New England over the years. Never swim in strong water currents. Don't jump into a swimming hole without scouting it first. Do not climb up or along the side of waterfalls. Be weary of slippery rocks. Never swim in pools above waterfalls. Use of this website and all of its information is at your own risk!
