Beautiful drive through gorgeous mountains with fall colors just beginning their seasonal transformation. The Silver Cascade Falls was truly a show stopper. Took hike up to Riley Falls, the first .1 miles was steep and full of rocks but after that if was a bit better. No matter what the 1/2 mile hike was worth every step.

All along Rt. 302 are pulloffs where you can enjoy the views. In addition, there are a few parking areas for exceptional views (like waterfalls and ponds). Be sure to allow yourself enough to time to drive through slowly, ready to pull over at any time, get in and out of the car, and really enjoy the scenery. It is... More

Moderate to tough hikes that offer spectacular views at certain look out points. We did Ripley Falls and Frankenstein loop and were not disappointed. Beautiful 9 mile hike that was tough and worth every moment.

My husband and I stayed at the campground here for 3 nights as part of a longer road trip. This was our favorite campground. Lovely tent sites on wooded lots, tremendous privacy. Manager came by and dropped off wood at night. Spotless bathroom and shower facilities (pay showers, but super cheap at 3 minutes per quarter). Nice laundry facility. If... More

The hike to the top of Mount Willard was one of the highlights of our two-week hiking trip in the Whites and coastal Maine. It was near 90-degrees the day that we hiked it, which made the trek a little tougher than a trail of this type. The slope up the mountain was never too step, although the rocky trail... More

The White Mountains of New Hampshire is a beautiful area to visit. In Crawford Notch, we saw Silver Cascade and Flume Cascade. Although both can be viewed from the the side of the road, you should climb up to get a closer look of the falls. There is a parking area.

Being in Nashua, we had to drive a couple of hours to get to Ripley Falls.. We were not really sure what to expect when we decided to go there as we wanted to kill some time during a long weekend. Reached the place to find that it had some hiking to do.. We were with a 6 yr old... More

Took a quick trip to Crawford Notch State Park in Hart's Location NH. Did not want to go "hiking", but there are certainly enough trails for the day hiker and the serious trail hiker. Just drove to the Railroad Station, which is a replica of the old stations which have stood here for over 100 years. Wandered about for a... More
