Buffam Falls is a 2.3 mile long loop trail on N Valley Rd in Pelham, Massachusetts that leads out to the convergence of two creeks and the waterfall, Buffam Falls. The trail crosses Amethyst and Buffam Brooks, but you have to find a way across each brook on your own, which may require hopping from rock to rock.

For an easier and faster hike to Buffam Falls, check out the Buffam Falls Blue Loop Trail.

Buffam Falls consists of 3 main cascades which are no more than 10 feet tall each. The largest cascade is about 7 or 8 feet tall which spills down Buffam Brook before merging with Amethyst Brook. The town of Pelham maintains the trails leading to and around Buffam Falls and the trails are mostly flat with some uphill heading back to parking.

Close to the creek convergence, downstream from Buffam Falls, is a fairly large rock outcropping with a ledge that sits above the creek.

Trailheads: There's a trailhead on the right-hand side of the road, heading North on N Valley Rd, where the parking marker is located. Hop over the guardrail and you'll find the trail that runs along the creek. There's another trailhead about 200 feet south of where the road crosses the creek - this trailhead is not depicted on the map, but it joins the main trail shown here.

Parking: The main parking area for this trail can be found right next to where the road passes the creek - look for guardrails and parking turnouts nearby or click the Get Directions link. A second parking location can be found on the right side of the road if you're heading north on N Valley rd about 200 feet before the creek.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, and no goal to profit - we share trail data for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes money and a lot of time and effort (including espresso shots) to run the site. Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
