Moxie Falls: A Short Hike With A Huge Reward

Spring, Summer, Fall: Moxie Falls is Maine’s highest waterfall and a great place to spend a day with the family. The falls are over 90 feet tall and fill the air in this little canyon with mist on a breezy day. A short hike down a well maintained trail through balsam scented forest leads to multiple vantage points of the falls. From here there are side trails leading to smaller falls and plunge pools well suited for a refreshing swim on a hot summer day. It’s a great place to cool off, have a picnic or just enjoy the sights and sounds of the Maine Woods. Located just off the Lake Moxie road outside the town of The Forks there is plenty of room to park and explore this beautiful spot at your own pace.
