Mosher Hill Falls, Farmington


  • Preserve Size: N/A
  • Trail Mileage: ~0.1 mile to falls
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: moderate
  • Sights: 45-foot waterfall

The waterfall here seems endless! It is very high. According to the internet, it is 45 feet, but somehow it feels much more significant that that. The gorge it runs through has high, sheer sides — be very careful as you try to peer over the edge to the falls.

As others have found, the best views are on the left side of the trail (south side), facing away from the road. You can attempt a stream crossing not too far downstream from the falls for a half-mile or so loop, depending on where you cross. The spot is not conducive for swimming, just for admiring water.

The trails aren’t marked, but they’re eroded, well-worn, and easy to follow. There are a lot of roots and rocks, and occasional muddy sections.

Directions: From Farmington, take Industry Road (Route 43) for just over three miles. Turn left on Mosher Hill Road. Go another three miles to a stream crossing, the road will have turned to dirt. There is a small parking are for two cars on the left, as well as a shoulder big enough for three cars.

Let me know if you have any trail updates or corrections!
