Bingham Falls

Thank you to Matt Hogan of M. P. Hogan Photography for providing us with the stunning photo of Bingham Falls pictured above! Matt contacted us after we liked this photo on Facebook and offered to donate the use of the image in honor of the work we do to protect places like Bingham Falls. Be sure to check out his website where you can view a sampling of his photography from Vermont and other New England locations.

Date Protected:  April 2001

Acres:  72

Current Landowner: State of Vermont

Conservation Purposes:  The primary purpose was protection of wildlife habitat, natural communities, native flora and fauna, and the natural waterfalls, gorges and cascades located on the property.  The secondary purpose of protection was to provide public non-motorized recreational access to the property and to protect the property's undeveloped character. 

Funding Partners:  Vermont Housing & Conservation Board, Town of Stowe and private donors.

Property Description:  The 72-acre property is predominantly forested with northern hardwoods - red maple, yellow and white birch and beech.  Hemlock occurs along the West Branch of the Little River which divides the property.  The property contains a 40 foot cascading waterfall and deep gorges and pools.  The property has been identified as an important wildlife corridor for bear allowing seasonal movement to and from Mt Mansfield State Forest and critical feeding habitat.  Even as a privately owned property, Bingham Falls, has long been used by the public for non-motorized recreational activities like swimming, hiking, hunting, snowshoeing, picnicking, ice climbing and cross country skiing.   

Public Access:  Bingham Falls is open to the public for a variety of non-motorized recreational activities and can be accessed from a dirt pull off on the Mountain Road or through the Stowe Land Trust owned Mill Trail Property.  

Directions:  The property is located on the east side of the Mountain Road approximately .5 miles north of Notch Brook Road and 10.5 miles from the intersection of Route 100 and Route 108 in Stowe Village. 

Bingham Falls' deep pools and gorges, spectacular forty-foot cascading waterfall, rich forest and trail network draw visitors from around the region.
