awesome views, great sport

a bit steep, but there are many trails for beginners as well. There were a lot of people out because there was a charity marathon. It was great fun.

We visited Ripley Falls and the Crystal Cascade. Both were fairly short, but still fun to do because of the reward at the end. Crystal Cascade was especially stunning. We also met a lot of day hikers on the Appalachian Trail. The people at Joe Dodge Lodge were very helpful, too.

All of the notches have such lovely attractions. The White Mountains if my favorite place to vacation. I don't think I could ever get sick of it. Within Crawford Notch I would definitely recommend seeing Arethusa Falls, Colosseum Falls, Frankenstein Cliffs, and Ripley Falls.

Challenging hike from the base of the Cog Railway to lunch at the Lakes of the Clouds hut then onto the summit. Cloudy at the top--no view, but still exhilarating to reach the top. Gusts 50-60 mph with wind chill 16; glad I had down parka.

Just missed peak foliage but the weather was warm and sunny. Stopped to view Frankensteins trestle and the railroad station. Great views!

The drive through the state park is amazing. The hike to Arethusa falls although quite testing was well worth it.

Worth driving through, especially in the fall. There is some interesting history in this area. There is so much to do here, take a few days to enjoy it!

A must for hikers of all abilities. Beautiful scenery, lots of trees and waterfalls. Some trails were more challenging than others.

You can visit both Ripley falls and Arethusa Falls. They are both about 1hour from the respected parking areas.
