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.

As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉
