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.
Also be sure to check out our other Vermont destinations and Vermont hikes!
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.
(Bittersweet Falls, Weybridge, Vermont) This looks like a great place to go and visit and spend the day hiking with my whole family. I love the great scenery that is all around you too.
Looks like a great place to relax and be with nature. Good reminder for hikers to preserve nature.
I absolutely love the outdoors! I haven’t been to Vermont since I was a teenager but I remember how beautiful it was. Especially in the fall!
I need to go to Vermont. I hear it’s so beautiful. I love caverns and waterfalls like this. We have a state park with similar landscape.
Awe, I passed through Vermont while there was a bunch of snow but this sounds like a great trip goal. I love waterfalls.
Oh, wow! I just pinned this to my dream travel board. Vermont is a long way from Southern California, but I can certainly dream!
This looks like such a charming place.
Love the name of this falls!!! And it is certainly a shame when people don’t clean up after themselves.. I try to carry gloves and a trash bag (when I can remember before we head out for hikes) so we can clean up some things at least.. This is definitely thanks to both the kids being in scouting..
I love the nature surrounding the fall.
That is the kind of place that just melts away your worries. I love that waterfall.
I’d love to take my family there. We live in NYC, and we love the city, but it’s nice to get out in nature sometimes and enjoy the natural beauty of the world.
There’s nothing more relaxing than getting out and exploring nature. It’s wonderful to reconnect with Mother Nature and make family memories.
It’s beautiful there. Vermont is one of my absolute favorite places to travel to.
Vermont never fails to disappoint. There are so many lovely spots to visit.
it’s a beautiful place that features nice-looking waterfalls. Unfortunately, people don’t seem to care about its beauty. It’s so sad that it lives up to its name.
Beautiful hike! I hope visitors in the future will be more respectful!
Nnnniiiccceeeee….when I look at nature like this, I am always in awe! So beautiful!!!!
Bittersweet Fall is such a gorgeous area! The falls themselves are beautiful, but the surrounding area is also so pretty.
I was here for the falls, I stayed for the teeny, tiny crayfish! OMG SO CUTE! This place looks absolutely magical. What a beautiful spot to visit :). Thank you for sharing your adventure with us!
The place is so nice, I love how natural it is but so sad to know that people are not responsible enough to clean up their trash. Make sure to not leave trash and take care of mother nature.
I want to see Bittersweet Falls, Weybridge, Vermont! I really want to visit Vermont soon. Maybe after the pandemic?
Wow, that sounds like a great place to visit and explore.
