Yes, the waterfalls, below is a little video of one of them in the area. The waterfalls are a major attraction during the carefully planned route by Eric.
I loved the couple below, such wonderful attitude about learning. As of writing this blog post, they were on an off-road adventure in Utah and Colorado. He is @steve_kamrad and she is @millieonthemove on Instagram if interested in following their adventures. The call Instagram the "Happy Place". Love it!!

Breakfast and more trail riding with stunning views with bridge crossings. We also stopped at a maple sugar farm, lovely stuff.
I highly recommend taking this course. It is the best in New England. There are no other courses like this because it will be a little vacation while you learn to master that large (or small in my case) motorcycle. It is not offered very often, but when it is available, grab it!!! I came home and feel so much better using my foot pegs while leaning and hugging the gas tank with my knees. Imagine, a little squeeze of the tank, lean in the right way and that machine will do magical things for you..... I have so many skills, I can even move the bike using that "friction zone" and balance the bike properly with one finger. I am not scared of my machine now. However, I still have not been able to lift my own bike alone. Hopefully during the world tour there will be someone with me to help when drop occurs, or a stranger willing to help a damsel in distress!!
I felt that the boys with their large GS's came out feeling the same as I did, happy with their new skills. One guy completely amazed me..... he rode all the technical trails, even the "baby head trail", which I decided not to ride. This boy mastered the steep waterfall trail with ease on mud, roots, steepness, trees and all the fun involved in tackling such a beast of a hill. When he started, he was very concerned about his riding ability - he confided in me. His wife accompanied him and enjoyed Hotel Jay's facilities while he learned how to ride his motorcycle. It was super cool to see them. I am mentioning this boy with his wife in my blog because if you are considering taking a course, sign up for this one, and bring a family member. If they want to learn, even better, otherwise they can hang out at the luxurious Hotel Jay.
I feel very confident now that I will be safer on the trails during the world tour. That was my goal, to acquire more riding skills that will keep me alive in remote areas. The course has prepared me well and I look forward to sharing those experiences with you, just as I am sharing this incredible experience I had this summer with MotoVermont. For now, place a bookmark on your browser for MotoVermont. Continue to check the schedule and take the course, you will not be disappointed. Don't expect the course to be easy as I have painted a pretty picture in my blog, it is extremely challenging. It does not matter how good of a rider you feel you are, the course will help you in many ways, or at least, get away from the daily hustle and bustle of work life and enjoy upper Vermont as a mini-vacation.
