Gently sloping down an expanse of granite in Maine's Baxter State Park, Ledge Falls' biggest drop is only four feet, making it popular with families. The trip down the slide might not get your pulse pounding, but the relaxing ride is longer than others on our list and there's a parking lot only a stone's throw from the falls. Toss an inner tube in the car and bob along like a true man of leisure.
