Reed Falls, Carrabassett Valley


  • Preserve Size: NA
  • Trail Mileage: .6 miles one way
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: Reed Falls, fun bridges

This is a sweet, easy .6-mile trail along Reed Brook to an unusual and very pretty waterfall. The trail is lovingly tended, with charming signs and bridges along the way. The best part (besides the falls) is “Lost Boys Bridge,” a rickety crossing that is sure to delight children. Be careful though, the bridge only takes the weight of one adult and one child at a time.

Directions: Coming from Kingfield, at the intersection of Routes 16 and 27, take Route 27 about four miles to the trail head. There is a new trailhead—check out the map below by the trail maker, Jack—at 1082 Route 27.

  1. Hi this is Jack, I have constructed a new trail on the North side of Reed Brook, and moved the trailhead to 1082 Route 27 (the structure seen in the photograph. The new trail is similar and length and grade. If you like I can provide you with a new map.

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