Take Wheelerville road (off rt 4) all the way up about 5-6 miles. There are several bridges on the road but this bridge goes right over the sight of the falls...about 2 miles out from Notch Rd at that point on Wheelerville.

Take a few minutes to check out these falls. We hiked down on the AT, but you can take a little board walk through a march too. Its right on the AT.

You are no longer permitted to see these falls. Closed to public. A complete waste of time. Go see thundering falls which is also known as roaring brook falls on the little town map.

Falls were 6 miles off of the main road on a narrow dirt road. Bridge is out 5 miles off the main road. Falls are posted to keep visitors off property.

My cousin Ron introduced me to McLaughlin Falls a few years back. He was showing me the land owned by our great-great granfather in 1860 and the cellar hole of house. I could hear the falls and he guided me to the bottom. Wow! You feel as if you've left this world for a place where time stands still and... More

McLaughlin Falls, which this site identifies as the Wheelerville Waterfall, is a 10 foot tall cascade into a pothole, followed by a short cascade that culminates in a 15 fool plunge into a pool. It is in a remote location, and is very photogenic.
