FALLS OF THE GULF HAGAS AREA

Gulf Hagus

Gulf Hagas Natural Landmark Sign

Gulf Hagas. The Hermitage. The 100 Miles of Wilderness. All of these world famous destinations are located a short distance from Greenville and Brownville, Maine. The area is part of the 175,000 acre tract known as the Katahdin Ironworks Jo-Mary Multiple Use Forest. To help maintain the roads and campsites, a small fee is charged to both day use and overnight visitors. All of the roads are dirt and logging trucks have the right away! When you see a logging truck coming from either direction, please pull over to let it pass safely. Gulf Hagas is a nearly four mile gorge with four major waterfalls (Stair, Billings, Buttermilk & Screw Auger falls) in or near the gorge and dozens of smaller falls. The area has three other waterfalls (Haybrook, Highbridge, West Chairback Pond) which are popular destinations.

Each waterfall is listed on the navigation menu at the top of your screen, or you can use these links:
