The drive on Route 7 from Albany to Vermont is so peaceful,
and if you’re heading to Lye Brook Falls [The intersection of Glen Rd. and Lye Brook Access Road in Manchester Vermont, continue on Lye Brook Access Road until you reach the parking lot] the beauty continues on. I had never heard of this National Forest before,
but the lot was filled with all different state license plates on a sunny Saturday morning. We hit the trail that was wonderfully maintained and easy to follow. Take a peak at the creek and you will see sparkling bronze water rushing by, a great sign if you’re hoping for a lush waterfall.
Your huffing and puffing will transpire to oohing and ahhing as you see one of Vermont’s tallest falls at 125 feet, Lye Brook produces an awe-inspiring sight. There are many different ways to look at the cascading falls.
The spot where the trail initially spits you out isn’t the best image, you must continue on for a short distance up on the path along the left side of the falls! This will lead to the best spot in the house.
