Sterling Brook Gorge

One of the many cascades in Sterling Brook Gorge near Stowe, Vermont.


Sterling Brook Gorge is a mile 1/2 of steep walls and multiple cascades and plunges. A trail runs along the top of the gorge, but to get up close and personal, you need to hike to the bottom and follow the easy to find herd path that will take you to two cascades. Depending on your risk level it's possible to negotiate further upstream but you need to be VERY careful. None of that, however, detracts form the beauty of the gorge. If you are ever near Stowe VT and like waterfalls, I highly recommend this Gorge.
