A Trip To This Southern Vermont Waterfall Is Truly Majestic

If you’re looking for a beautiful Vermont State Park with a spectacular waterfall, look no further than the Hamilton Falls in the Jamaica State Park. This well maintained and very natural area has a 3-mile hike (2 miles are flat and the third is a very steep incline) that is worth the tired muscles you may get. At the end of the hike you will be rewarded with a view of Hamilton Falls, a beautiful waterfall that cuts 125 feet down sheer granite. Viewing it is awesome, but we don’t recommend attempting to swim – especially in the top pool!
