Doane's Falls



Dogs (leashed)

The Doane's Falls Trail in Royalston, Massachusetts is an easy 0.2 mile out-and-back hike to the iconic multi-tiered waterfall, Doane's Falls. Doane's Falls is one of the most scenic waterfalls in western Massachusetts and the best part is, its just a short walk down to views.

This hike technically only spans the Upper and Middle Falls; however, you can continue further downhill along the blue-blazed trail to a lookout to the Lower Falls.

Despite only spanning the Upper and Middle Falls, you'll end up seeing more than two cascades of waterfalls before heading back to parking.

Parking: Parking can be found at the intersection of Doane Hill Rd and Athol Rd in Royalston.

Warning: Due to rapid currents, swimming, wading, and fishing are all prohibited here. Also beware of the steep slopes near the cliffs by the creek.
