Short hike from parking through tunnel under the road. Place to stretch your legs if you have been in the car for a while. Other hiking trails also leave the same parking lot. Pay attention when walking...stair help but there are many roots and rocks if you are not willing to scramble a little. Picture opportunities exist at outlooks on... More

Breathtaking photos were taken here after our ceremony. It was just me, my husband, my dad, and the photographer (Carrie Woodsum from Framingham MA). We had a beautiful, intimate moment after the ceremony. It was very Zen to go there and catch our breaths before going back to the reception (see my review of the Inn at Jackson).

Compared to the outstanding scenery in the White Mountains, these falls are somewhat of a letdown but if you are in the vicinity go and see what I meant.

Had to walk down many stairs to get to the falls, but it was worth it. Make sure you wear good walking shoes!

Gettng to these requires a bit of a drive from Jackson then a bit of a walk - but its worth it. The views of the falls are really good and you can get close - I got wet taking photos. Its very pretty in that area so lots of options for composition - worth a stop if you have... More

The falls are situated a short walk from the car park on Route 16. The path is relatively easy with a set of steps at the end to reach the lower part of the falls. It is definitely worth the effort to see the cascading water that thunders down 20 mtr into the pool below. You get a bit wet... More

A bit af a rough walk and quite a lot of steepish steps to get there but well worth it. The upper falls are very pretty and main falls and pools quite beautiful.

Ellis River Falls were absolutely beautiful. We parked on one side of the highway and went through an underground walkway to get safely to the other side. It was a bit rocky, and lots of downhill to get to the main part of the falls. Some people had walking sticks to make it easier, but none of us found it... More
