CHEEVER FALLS - WALDEN, VERMONT
Description: This is an outstanding waterfall series in Walden. It requires a short hike into the back country to get to it, but it is well worth the effort. The upper falls are a small set of twin cascades leading to a small pool above the main falls. The main, middle falls is a 20' drop into a very gorgeous pool lined with stones and pebbles. The bottom falls is another 20' drop that is a twin falls in lower flow. This fall varies dramatically by season. In the spring it is a seething white mass, but in the summer it becomes much more defined, and accommodates swimming and exploration. In addition, it has one of the most beautiful, and old-fashioned signs you will ever see.
