THE FALLS:

If you are traveling in the area of north of the town of Jackman, make a quick pit stop at The Falls Rest Area, a small marked parking area off of US 201. A fine road stop for a picnic or a break before crossing the Canadian border, the rest area is complete with picnic tables and a series of drops of Sandy Stream known simply as The Falls.
         The Falls is far from spectacular or unique, but this is made up for with extremely easy road access and a rather original wildflower-lined rest area. Supplementing this waterfall with nearby Heald Stream Falls and Parlin Falls makes for a fine tour of this quiet region of Maine.

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!
