Tucked within eastern Stowe next to CC Putnam State Forest, Moss Glen Falls features a series of cascading waterfalls. To access these falls, you'll need to hike along the Moss Glen Falls Trail, which spans nearly 3 miles. Follow the trail to the right and you'll reach the base of the falls. Walk up instead of right and you'll eventually find yourself at an upper falls vantage point.
According to prior visitors, days with little to no snow and ice are the best times to hike here. Winter's conditions increase the chance of sliding, which can make hiking the higher part of the path extremely challenging. If you're not confident in your fitness abilities, stick to the mostly flat lower section. Also, stay alert when driving to the falls since the attraction's small parking lot can be hard to spot.
The only way to get to Moss Glen Falls is by car. Besides the simple parking area and the Moss Glen Falls Trail, no facilities are available here. However, both are free and open to the public year-round.
