There is a falls located just across the New Hampshire border in West Townsend, Massachusetts that I enjoying visiting a few times a year. In Willard Brook State Forest there is an array of activities from picnicking, hiking and my favorite, enjoying a small waterfall.
Trap falls is a great place for a picnic or enjoying the sound of rushing water. The falls are located just a few hundred feet off the road, so there is not much of a walk to get to enjoy natures beauty. There are picnic tables and fire pits allowing you to spend a few hours having a picnic, enjoying the falls and kids can explore the rocks surrounding the falls. A couple miles down the road is Damon Pond where there are more picnic tables and hiking trails. This is a great place for a family outing.
