Frequently, getting to the most-beautiful places in Maine require lengthy hikes.  Not true in this case!  You can practically drive up to this amazing natural wonder.

According to Only In Your State, Coos Canyon is just off Route 17 in Byron, Maine!

The canyon, carved by the Swift River, is a quick walk from the parking area.  And, while it doesn't have a massive waterfall, there is a good 15' drop.

In the summer, it's a great place to take a dip and cool off.  This time of year, the changing foliage make the views spectacular!

It's about a 90 minute drive from anywhere in Central Maine, but worth the trip.
