Falls Brook Falls (New Brunswick)

IMGP1662Falls Brook Falls cascade over Appalachian rock found in the woodlands of central New Brunswick near Boiestown.  Falls Brook Falls is thought to be among the highest falls in New Brunswick, shared only by Mary Pitcher Falls.

To get there, head to the Boiestown area of New Brunswick.  Take highway
625 to the Bloomfield Ridge Road.  Keep right to go across the bridge
over the river and keep left toward the Holtville Road.  You will access
the area via an Irving forestry management gate.  The entry fee is $10
per car. Follow the road toward Falls Brook (10 minutes) before seeing a
wooden sign indicating a side road on the west side of the road toward
the trailhead.  You can hike from here, but if driving to the trailhead,
the end of the road is very steep, rocky and washed out and a high
clearance 4X4 truck is necessary.  At the trailhead, proceed to the right and follow the brook to the falls.  It isn't recommended taking the upper path (marked with 'steep dropoff' signs).
