Discover One Of Maine’s Most Majestic Waterfalls – No Hiking Necessary

Maine might not have the same topographical recognition as some states out west, but it still has a surprising amount of hills and mountains. That’s what makes Vacationland such a great place for hiking and exploring outside. It also makes it one of the best places in New England for exploring waterfalls. There are a number of wonderful falls to see, but many require hiking to find, but not all! This waterfall, located in Byron, can be accessed from the road, and it’s a summer highlight for many!

What’s a beautiful waterfall near me in Franklin County, Maine?

For those located near Franklin County in western Maine, Angel Falls is a beautiful 90-foot waterfall that’s long been hailed as being one of the most spectacular in the state. Located near the town of Byron (which just so happens to be where Coos Canyon is located, too!), Angel Falls is fed by Mountain Brook and tumbles happily down a rocky cliff for 90 feet before pouring into a pool below. It’s a beautiful fall to discover while in the Pine Tree State, and this easy, mile-long trail will take you straight there!

Does Maine have a Grand Canyon?

You don’t need to live in Arizona to visit the Grand Canyon; the United States is home to numerous captivating canyons sure to take your breath away — Maine included! Gulf Hagas is a roughly three-mile-long stretch of rock walls that tower over the river rushing nearly 500 feet below. Nicknamed “the Grand Canyon of Maine” — and even “the Grand Canyon of the East” — it’s found along the northern stretch of the Appalachian Trail and features a network of trails, incredible rock formations, and a series of beautiful waterfalls. If while hiking you begin to question why Gulf Hagas is considered the “Grand Canyon of Maine,” keep hiking — you’re likely only moments away from stumbling upon a vista that’s sure to render you speechless. It’s one of our favorite places in Maine because it has it all: scenic views, waterfalls, commanding canyons, and so much more! Talk about peak Pine Tree State beauty.
