Cascade Falls in Saco, Maine is a beautiful waterfall hike with little effort and a big payout. When we hiked this trail, the bridge along the Green Loop was washed out but the waterfall is still accessible. Hikers can start at the parking lot, take a right-hand turn at the red blazes to follow them to the top of the falls. Take a right-hand turn along the Green Loop which heads downhill to Cascade Falls. The hike back is the same if the bridge is washed out.

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

But it takes a lot of money, time, and effort (including espresso shots) to run MyHikes. 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!
