Easy walk to do with family and dogs. From the Appalachian Trail: From the River Road parking area, the Appalachian Trail passes through the open floodplain of the Ottauquechee River and crosses the Thundering Falls boardwalk.
The trail then climbs to the fall observation platform.
From here, the Appalachian Trail continues its ascent through the northern wood forest to Thundering Brook Road, where a small parking lot can be found. Description: It starts from the intersection of Route 100 in Vermont and Route 4 in Killington, 2 miles east to a junction with River Road on the left.
From there, drive 1.5 km to an accessible car park on the left.
Thundering Falls offers the first universally accessible portion of the Appalachian Trail (AT) in Vermont. From the start the rest is pretty easy, just follow the trail and you should get there without any hazards.
