Bittersweet Falls, Weybridge, Vermont

On a road trip through Vermont, we made it a goal to check out as many waterfalls as possible.  One of the ones we happened to stop at was Bittersweet Falls in Weybridge.

We found this waterfall through our “New England Waterfalls” book, and used Google Maps to get there.

According to the book, the land is owned by Monument Farms Dairy, but the public is welcome to visit as long as they are respectful.

We parked on a small, but nice pull off area, and the falls can just about be seen from the car.

Unfortunately, the falls were down to just about a trickle in mid-August.  While most of the other falls we visited that weekend were flowing nicely, there was very little water here.

There was a small pool at the bottom of the waterfall.

The kids found a cute crayfish, but the water was otherwise not big enough and not inviting as far as swimming.  Having seen broken glass around, I wanted to be careful as well.

Unfortunately there was a lot of trash people had left behind.  We saw where folks had made a campfire but also left a mess.  There was broken glass (including a glass bottle broken in half) and other litter all around the falls.

I recommend visiting this waterfall earlier in the year, probably in late spring.  It is always sad to see places like this that people don’t respect when they visit, as it takes away from the beauty of nature.

    I wouldn’t have expected to find a tiny little crayfish up there in Vermont! He’s a cutie! It is a shame people didn’t clean up after themselves, it’s their responsibility to leave it as or better than how they found it.
