Slide Down Falls is a beautiful series of waterfalls in the Jackman Moose River Region.
The Falls are on the west branch of Sandy Steam. The hike is relatively short, but the second half is steep. This hike is a local favorite and when you reach this little piece of Heaven you will completely understand why!
To access Slide Down Falls, Travel North on Route 201 for approximately 8 miles. On the left side of the road in the South Dumas Road. It looks almost as you are pulling into a driveway, you are not. The building that stands there is a sugar camp. The road will take you to the right of the camp. Follow the road until you reach the yellow gate, approximately 1 mile. There is a small parking area where you will be able to park and start your hike.
When starting your hike, walk around the gate and follow the Dumas Road, the road splits into 3, take the middle route, the Dumas Road. Follow the Dumas road for .7 miles until you reach the trailhead on the left. The trail is well marked. The decent to the falls is relatively steep, please use caution. You will reach the falls in .35 miles.
You will be greeted with a true Maine Oasis. The trail will lead you to the middle level of the falls. You may choose to hike up to another small pool, or hike down. Many people jump into the middle pool. Please use extreme caution. The rocks can be very slippery.
