Keep the river to the right and you will arrive at the base of Roaring Brook Falls. Slides from 1963 widened this site to the spectacular look it has today.
Proper footwear is a must, and trekking poles help negotiate some tricky parts of the trail. DO NOT GET TOO CLOSE IN WINTER. The ice creates dangerous conditions.
