Roaring Brook Falls

The forecast on our final day in the Adirondacks called for afternoon thunderstorms. While we had considered Cascade Mountain or even Dial Mountain as nice easy hikes, the overcast skies led themselves more towards waterfalls than vistas.

We pulled into the Roaring Brook Falls parking lot, which we previously used on a wet hike to Giant and Rocky Peak Ridge. This time we stayed dry and explored the nearby base and slightly farther top of the falls.

The falls were lovely and soothing, and the views from the top were terrific. While only a short walk from Giant’s Nubble, we decided to head back into town for another ADK Cafe lunch instead. It was a treat to end a great weekend.

PS – It didn’t thunderstorm. Cascade or Dial would have been wonderful.
