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.

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 last 50 years. Never swim when the water currents seem like they are too high or strong. Use of this website and all of its information is at your own risk! Be safe out there - and always use common sense!
