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.
