When most people think about visiting Saco or Old Orchard Beach, they're thinking beaches and amusements. Those are fantastic attractions in the summertime but what about the spring right after the snow melts? Saco has an answer for that in Cascade Falls, one of Maine's most underrated and gorgeous waterfalls that is tucked in the woods off a busy stretch of road as shared by Michelle Downer on Facebook.

What Can You Expect To See At Cascade Falls?

It all depends on when you go. As the title suggests, visiting Cascade Falls in the spring after the snow melts or after some decent rain is when the falls are at their most stunning. The short hike to the falls is easy enough for even the most novice of outdoors people, and offers the best of all worlds for those that want some natural beauty without having to jaunt into the middle of nowhere.

Where Is Cascade Falls Exactly?

Thankfully, there's a designated parking lot if you're looking to visit the falls as seen here on Facebook courtesy of Jeff Dorais. The physical address is 61 Cascade Road in Saco, Maine. Another great reason to visit in the spring is because there's almost always parking. Signs mark the path quite clearly and before you realize it, you'll stumble upon Cascade Falls in all of its beauty.

Can I Visit In The Summer?

Absolutely. But as was stated above, the falls can run dry during the hottest summer days. Not only that, pesky insects like ticks and mosquitos will be more prevalent in the summer heat than visiting in the "offseason".

Does It Cost Anything To Visit?

No. Cascade Falls is free for all. You just need to show up with a healthy appetite for nature and a decent pair of walking shoes probably wouldn't hurt.
