Rock Garden Falls

Rock Garden Falls

Rock Garden Falls has been so named by renowned waterfall guidebook author Russell Dunn due to its likeness to a Japanese Rock Garden. The Waterfall here is 15-20 feet in height and cascades down a dark colored rock wall in a clearing just off of the parking area for Giant Mountain’s Zander Scott Trail on Rte 73 in Keene.

Getting there – From Underwood (Junction of Routes 73 and 9), drive northwest on Rte. 73 for 3.8 miles and park in a long pull-off on your right. The waterfall will be barely visible through the trees and accessed via a short path.
