Maine Things To Do Waterfall Trip: Don’t Be a Dead Beat, Go To Grand Falls!
Posted by mainetodo on Monday, July 07 @ 17:43:31 EDT

If you are looking for an adventurous thing to do that’s not too extreme and a great way to spend the day with the entire family, consider visiting Grand Falls located on the Dead River. Grand Falls is one of the largest waterfalls in Maine and offers solitude and adventure for sightseeing lovers alike. Even though Grand Falls is off the beaten path, it can be found using a reasonable amount of caution. First, purchase a Maine Gazetteer. This will help you while traveling on your way to Grand Falls on the logging roads. Next, make it to the forks region where the Dead River connects to the Kennebec River. You will then travel on the Lower Enchanted Road to Grand Falls. A good rule of thumb when traveling any of Maine’s logging roads is to know the exact distance to your destination. Be sure to set your odometer and remember that if you go more than 15 miles while on the Lower Enchanted road, you have gone too far. When you arrive at Grand Falls, you will be presented with some of the most astounding

waterfall settings that Maine has to offer. The Cascading water fall drops into deep, cold water pools that are great for swimming. If you are so inclined, you may also decide to bring your kayak or canoe to the falls for the day. In addition to the opportunities of swimming, kayaking, canoeing, enjoying the views, and hiking along the trails that surround the falls, great fishing opportunities await the visitor to the falls. Rainbow and brook trout, as well as smallmouth bass and landlocked salmon are plentiful in the waters directly below the falls. Visiting Grand Falls is best done in the summer months and is a great way to relax, picnic, swim, and take in breathtaking views with the family in one of Maine’s most pristine settings.
