Moss Glen Falls, A Stunning Waterfall in VT

Moss Glen Falls, A Stunning Waterfall in VT

Moss Glen Falls is an amazing, roadside waterfall in Granville, Vermont. It is also one of the most popular attractions on Route 100!

Scenic Route 100

Vermont’s Scenic Route 100 Byway is considered one of the most popular roads traveled in Vermont.  Starting just over the Massachusetts border, you can pick up Route 100 in Stamford, Vermont. If you follow Route 100 north, about 216 miles, you will have traveled almost the length of Vermont, right up to the Canadian border!


Where is Moss Glen Falls?

Moss Glen Falls is located on Vermont’s Scenic Route 100 between the towns of Rochester and Warren. One of the things that makes Moss Glen Falls so appealing is that this stunning waterfall can be seen roadside.  In fact, the first time we ever saw it, we were riding through torrential rain, on the motorcycle. I thought I saw it, but then thought it was just my waterlogged brain playing tricks on me! But sure enough, the next day when the rain stopped, we drove back and saw this stunning site!!

A Moss Glen Falls Surprise!

This waterfall is said to be about 35 feet tall! Depending on the time of year and amount of rain prior to your visit, you just might get a special surprise! That surprise is a second fall close to the parking area!

This added fall, sometimes called Little Moss Glen Falls, can be found close to the parking area, as you walk into the wooded area to the boardwalk.


We have stopped at this waterfall several times while riding in Vermont. On our July 2021 trip we were lucky enough to see Little Moss Glen Falls!! It was roaring down the side of the mountain!  This was a first for us, and honestly, if you didn’t know the big fall was there, you might think this was it! It was beautiful and gushing fast the day we were there!

To the left of Little Falls is Moss Glen Falls, the main attraction!!  Follow the boardwalk into the woods and get an up-close look.  You can also see this waterfall from the road if you choose.


There is also a second waterfall named Moss Glen Falls and this is in Stowe, Vermont.  We have not yet visited this fall.

Other Great Stops On Route 100

On this day trip in Vermont, we also visited:

  • Appalachian National Scenic Trail, Thundering Falls Trailhead-Killington, Vermont
  • Original General Store-Route 100 in Pittsfield, Vermont
  • Texas Falls-Hancock, Vermont

We love riding Vermont, and usually do so by motorcycle. Scenic Route 100 can be visited at all times of the year, as the road is well maintained and open year-round.  We highly recommend a trip to the area!
