Moss Glen Falls, Granville, Vermont

We recently took a road trip through Vermont, and wanted to visit several waterfalls.  One of the ones we were able to easily find was Moss Glen Falls, located in Granville, Vermont.

We found this falls right on Vermont Route 100, and had no problem finding the falls using Google Maps.  Note that there is another Moss Glen Falls located in Stowe!

The parking area is located right on the road, and is clearly marked with a sign.

From the parking area there is a boardwalk going to both Little Moss Glen Falls (to the right), and Moss Glen Falls (to the left).  You can just about see both from the parking area, and the walk is very minimal.

There is some information at the trailhead.

The walk to the falls is very short, and the trail was well-maintained.

We visited the small falls first, which were still flowing a little bit in mid-August.  I imagine earlier in the season, there would be a lot more water.

The large falls is much larger, and very impressive.  Just beautiful!

The water was still flowing in late August 2018.  Again, I am sure it would be even more impressive with higher water levels in the spring and early summer.

The water is beautiful and clear.

… and VERY cold!  You could feel the cold air emanating off the water.

What a beautiful place to visit and dip our feet in.  We had a lovely time stopping to check out this location and enjoy the beauty of Moss Glen Falls.

 

I recommend “Waterfalls of New England”, which was a great resource this summer.

    What a great place to visit at the end of the summer! It looks so serene. I am envious! I feel like we don’t really have places like that around where I live (because um, we have no water – LOL)

    That looks like a wonderful place to explore. I really wish I had some places around here that I could explore with my family, at least as beautiful as this one. I hope I can get out there one day and check out all the beauty there.

    We went to Vermont last month and had a great time. We visited BUrlington and Shelburne… both great towns! This looks like another fabulous destination. I’d love to visit!

    How pretty. I’m always a fan of waterfalls. If I’m ever in Vermont, I’ll keep these falls in mind for sure.

    That is a very pretty waterfall. We go to New Hampshire a lot and I love all the waterfalls there are up in Northern New England to explore.

    What a gorgeous waterfall! I could totally see myself curling up next to that with a book and completely losing a day doing nothing but sitting there and taking it all in!

    That is one beautiful Falls! Nothing beats the natural beauty of nature. I bet it is fun to swim there.

    Vermont is one of the states (only 4 left!) that I haven’t visited. When I come, I will put this one on my list.

    This is beautiful and so different than the weather we are seeing in Arizona. My daughters would love to be able to explore such a lush trail while soaking in those upcoming fall temps!
