Wanted to explore some Maine beauty. Easily located with GPS and very little effort. Easy access to see the falls - even in the pouring rain. It was a HOT summer day, so no big deal! So much beauty in this state I love! Reviewer vermonliskat says

The falls are awesome, cascading gently down the Bear River into huge, deep rock formations from the Ice Age. They pick up speed as they race down the extremely deep part and the sights and sounds are amazing. Reviewer dragonflysees says:

We stopped here to see the falls, and were amazed at how beautiful it was, with the potholes and gorge, twists and turns, and even wildflowers around.
