Trust me when I say, you're going to want to put these on your winter weekend trip list! https://youtu.be/k_0TxjROq8g   Tucker Brook Falls The trail to get to Tucker Brook Falls is fairly quick.  The path from the parking lot will lead you across a small bridge and there are a couple of small hills but before long you’ll come to Tucker Brook, soon after that you’ll come to the falls.  I’ve never seen a frozen waterfall in person, so to see them in this state is pretty awesome.
