The most interesting part of this waterfall may be the cylinder-shape gorge that the water flows down into. Some have speculated that the gorge was created by a retreating glacier from the last Ice Age. It seems doubtful that the normally calm waters of Falls Brook could have created such a rugged place through erosion, but streams and rivers change over time and therefore this is the most viable explanation.
The falls themselves are also quite a treat. This 45-foot plunge drops off a flat rock ledge. You can either view the falls from behind safety cable wire fences or by standing on a firmly planted rock at the top of the falls. You can also cross the brook and scramble downstream for wonderful new views of the gorge and falls if you are comfortable in doing so.
Royalston Falls is one of three waterfalls located on properties within the town of Royalston that are managed by the organization called The Trustees of Reservation. The other two waterfalls, Doane's Falls and Spirit Falls, should be added your itinerary if time permits.
