THE FALLS:

A short stroll from the road will bring you to Mossy Glen; a series of pools, slides and cascades set among heavy growth of several moss species. Thin sheets of water drop at low-angles here. There is also a pool with a whirlpool current, and a nicely crafted pine bridge, which adds much visual appeal to the hike. Be sure to read the historical sign affixed to the ceiling of this pine bridge. For additional fun on your return hike, cross back over the bridge and take the trail on the left to the mossy covered stone steps of the Mossy Glen Amphitheatre. The Randolph Mountain Club, a volunteer-based organization deeply involved in trail-work and backcountry lodging in the area, continues to use this location on occasion for meetings and gatherings.
