Wilson Falls

Wilson Falls
Elliotsville Road, Monson, Maine

Little Wilson Falls is one of the highest falls in Maine, with the main drop being 13 yards. Long canyon below with many scenic views. Trails are accessible by the Appalachian Trial. Wilson Falls has a wonderful Campground Area. There are wood benches to have lunch on. You can also spend the night at the Campground, and make a weekend of your outing, with friends and family. The many walking trails from the lower Falls and camping area will take you to the Wilson Gorge. It is about a 1-hour hike to the Gorge, but well worth the time. This trail is part of the Appalachian Trail, so you may encounter some very personable hikers on your way. Take the time and stop and talk to the Appalachian Trail hikers, for they may have many stories about their experiences on the Trail.

Direction on getting there:
Follow Rt. 15 south towards Monson, Just before entering Monson village, go left on the Elliottsville Road. Follow this road approximately 5 miles to Wilson Falls campground on Big Wilson Stream. Turn left into the campground. Follow trails to Big Wilson Cliffs and Appalachian Trail to Little Wilson Falls and Gorge.
