Honestly, just sticking to the rivers and the lakes that you’re used to sounds pretty boring. And spring, especially after a winter where a lot of places saw a serious amount of snow, is the best time to go.

Here are some of the most beautiful waterfalls in the country.

Moxie Falls, Maine

Maine’s highest and most easily accessible waterfall, 100-foot-tall Moxie flows out of a pond of the same name into the Kennebec River. There are multiple drops on the stream.

There’s great swimming in the smaller pools above the main waterfall, or, if you’re nervous about being too close to the edge, you can scramble down to the lower falls.

Palouse Falls, Washington

The state falls of Washington (a state with many great cascades), 198-foot-high Palouse Falls carves through dramatic basalt cliffs on the Palouse River, just upstream from its confluence with the Snake River. You can camp at Palouse Falls State Park, which is replete with hiking trails and wildflowers (and rattlesnakes, so keep your head up).

Ramona Falls, Oregon

The Wild and Scenic Sandy River runs over Ramona Falls in the Mount Hood Wilderness. It’s an easy hike in, and it’s relatively close to Portland, so it can get crowded, but it’s worth the hustle and bustle to see the multiple falls, which are broken up by naturally occurring basalt columns.

Grand Falls, Arizona

Arizona’s multi-tiered Grand Falls were formed by volcanic runoff from Merriam Crater, which created a stair-stepping cascade when it stopped moving. The falls are known for creating tons of rainbows in their spray.

It’s on Navajo Nation land in the Painted Desert, so make sure you get a permit and travel respectfully.

Pipiwai Trail, Hawaii

The Pipiwai Trail, in Maui’s Haleakala National Park, might give you the most bang for your buck of any waterfall hike on the planet. Over 4 well-maintained miles you’ll see two huge falls, Waimoku and Makahiku, as well as a bunch of smaller ones, and gigantic banyan trees and bamboo forests.
