The primitive loop trail follows the discontinued end of Woodman Road (woods road) before turning right into the woods, following the stream, and looping clockwise back onto Woodman Road. Along the trail, look for historic granite markers showing the municipal boundary between New Gloucester and Auburn, a 1947 Plymouth, a farmer's bridge abutment from the 19th Century, and more. The green diamond-blazed City Line Trail connects the two Big Falls Loop Trail sections along the municipal boundary.
Please be careful of slippery rocks: The waterfall is challenging to appreciate due to poor vantage points from the trail and very slippery rocks in the stream and falls. Please be very careful traversing the rocks that form the falls.
Multiple private trails, that are open to the public for walking, leave the abandoned section of Woodman Road on the LEFT. (RRCT trails leave on the RIGHT.) Please respect all signs and postings by all abutters.
