Cool Off This Summer With A Visit To These 7 Maine Waterfalls

It’s no secret that we love exploring the outdoors of Maine. It’s even less of a secret that the waterfalls here are some of our favorite destinations. They’re often easier to find than many people think and they offer a fun addition to many hiking trails. This is especially true for those of us who like a little motivation in the form of a fun payoff at the end of a trail to get us going. Summer is a great time to explore some of our favorites and we recommend starting with those on this list.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

We love waterfalls, but they’re not the only reason we hit the trails. Maine’s Bowl Trail leads to a magnificent hidden oasis that might even be better!
