Description

The trail enters the woods and drops steeply towards a large deep hole that holds a deep pool that locals swim in. Be careful because the roots down to the edge can be slippery (especially in winter) and it's about a 15 foot drop to the pool below. Kids have ropes on the trees along the edge they use to swing out over the pool. Lower Moss Glen Falls is a small waterfall that flows into this deep pool. The pool is tidal and flows into the Kennebecasis River to the right.

Follow the top of the hill up along the stream and you will soon drop down to the stream just below Upper Moss Glen Falls. This 30 foot tall falls drops into the valley over a rock wall on the side of the valley. It is difficult to get a good view of the falls without crossing the stream. There is another short trail from the road that comes out to the top of the falls.

Moss Glen Falls Trail

Note that in the past the landowner has posted a No Trespassing sign where the trail enters the woods. Make sure you clean up any garbage even if it was left by someone else. This will help assure continued access to this amazing place.

Directions

From Route 845 in Moss Glen turn onto the Moss Glen Shore Road. Follow this road for 750 meters until you see a small parking area on your left. The trail enters the woods at the back of this parking area.
