This is one of the easiest AMC hikes in the White Mountains. It's about 3 miles in and the last tenth of a mile is quite steep but worth completion. It's an easy 6 mile round trip or you can choose to make a reservation...More

This is a short an easy hike, ideal for beginners and those in search of a quick half-day hike. The falls are about 2.7 mi from the parking lot, all basically flat other than a little 0.2mi climb at the very end. The view from...More
