Jamaica; Windham County
Cobb Brook cascades 125 feet down a mountain slope, through a pine-hemlock woodland and into a series of large potholes. There are several falls, the most spectacular of which drops 40 to 50 feet into a large pool. Hamilton Falls is unique, dramatic, and dangerous. Do not take chances on the steep and slippery rocks.
Hamilton Falls is a very popular swimming and picnicking area located within the natural area along Cobb Brook. Be careful, several people have lost their lives swimming here. The Hamilton Falls Trail provides access to the top and bottom of the falls and connects to the West River Trail within Jamaica State Park.
