Just before dumping into the Connecticut River, the Stevens River cascades 60 feet in one final magnificent display. A local resident owns the property in front of the waterfall, which must be a real treat for them. Unfortunately for us, this means that views are limited to roadside only. Perhaps one day the town of Barnet will acquire the property and create a lovely small park. This waterfall would definitely be the main attraction in any new park creation. As it currently stands, you should visit now expecting only to view it from the road; it is still a beautiful sight regardless.
The views from roadside will have to suffice for this waterfall, as it travels through private property.
From St. Johnsbury, take I-91 south to exit 18 in Barnet. Follow Bartlett Rd for 0.6 mile towards the center of Barnett. When you reach a junction, take a left onto VT 5 north. Travel on VT 5 north for 0.5 mile and take a sharp right turn onto Mill Hill St. The falls are right around the corner on the right.
