 Orris Falls 1/17/2016
Orris Falls is located in South Berwick. One of many parcels kept by the Great Works Land Trust.

The trails weren't super long but provided some interesting snow covered wandering. Some tree blazes would have been helpful. http://www.mainetrailfinder.com/trails/trail/orris-falls-conservation-area

The former site of the Littlefield Homestead, you can still see two foundations on the property.

Lots of beaver activity made for small ponds.

A tiny falls, thus the name, can be spied but probably better seen in warm months.

Balancing rock.

This would be a great place to take children, and it's near at least three other small trail networks. For a walk in the woods, it was perfect.

Funny you should mention that Becky! :D

It is a nice place. Not sure what happened to my pictures here but the ledgy outlooks towards Agamenticus and the gorge/falls were some of the nicer surprises I've had in the area. Worth going back for in the spring when the falls are flowing well and exploring the side trails/sights for sure.

GG, you beat me to it! I was gonna say that that place, particularly the falls, would be best after a good spring melt. Might go there if I'm ever in the area.

A spring trip seems right. :) I did a search but came up with nothing on Orris on the forums. :( Is the search function not working? GG you've been everywhere!

Forum searches never work well, it's not unique to this one. Google and adding site:forum.hike-nh.com to the end (or whatever site you are interested in searching) almost always is 100x better.

 Re: Orris Falls 1/17/2016
The method described by Matt is the one I use also. The forum search on this site actually worked well until the site was slightly overhauled. Ever since then the search is useless and pictures bigger then 640 wide foul up the posts on mobile devices because the ability to scroll went the way of the dinosaurs, although I recently realized you can hit the "print view" and see the whole thing.

As for being everywhere. Not everywhere, yet, but if it's has a trail and is within 30 minutes of Exeter it's probably more likely than not that I've been. :)
