From there a very short bushwack along the brook will bring you to the falls. No real trail there, but there are remnants of an old road visible in spots."
MA Old Wendell Road Falls FAIR Northfield Not Listed I could not find in 2009 but I don't think I was looking in the correct spot; looks semi-impressive per photos I have seen; also called Hobo Falls and Feltman Falls; one reader of this website emailed me in 2016 and provided the following information: "the falls are best approached from the Gulf Rd side of Old Wendell Rd in Northfield. Where Old Wendell Rd tapers to a rocky unimproved washout, there is a kiosk with parking for 3-4 cars and then a 15 min. walk to a town forest sign on the left, and a trail that leads to the ledge base of the falls (5 minutes). It is sporadic but quite a steep drop down sheer ledge, maybe 70-90 feet in total? Footing is sketchy."

When guardrail stops & road levels into a left curve, a sandy 3-4 car turnout will appear quickly on your LEFT. Park there. Alternatively, if coming from Winchester, look for long straightaway w/maple lines running on each side & turnout will be JUST after on your RIGHT. The woods road ACROSS RT 10 (ribbon tape?) will lead downhill to a small brook, cross & go left up through rock splits & a small bog. Your ear should be plenty tuned to Pauchaug below…Trail crosses Falls #1 & heads north 2/10 mile to an “island” of hemlock w/gentle brook rolling down through boulder jumbles. There’s a cave. High tension wires overhead are hardly seen"

GREAT Westminster Not Listed There are rumors that this is no longer PRIVATE PROPERTY; this waterfall may now be conserved and available for public viewing! the falls are impressive to see, but swimming can be very dangerous here (many lives have been lost over the years)
VT Upper Joiner Brook Falls POOR Bolton Not Listed looks unimpressive per pictures I have seen
VT Upper Thatcher Brook Falls FAIR Waterbury Not Listed highly likely to be PRIVATE PROPERTY
VT Upper Twin Falls FAIR Westminster Not Listed may or may not be PRIVATE PROPERTY; the lower falls are supposedly open to visitors again

FAIR Johnson Not Listed I wandered upstream to the falls in 2009, but it is very likely that I was crossing PRIVATE PROPERTY (although there were no "no trespassing" signs in place though); you are welcome to do the same as I, but if you see "no trespassing" signs, please turn around (and let me know too if you can)

VT Whetstone Falls POOR Brattleboro Not Listed just a set of cascades with a dam; I visited in 2016 and was not really impressed; located in the downtown area; also called Whetstone Brook Falls
