We visited here on the advice of a lady who worked at Mount Washington Autoroad and were not disappointed with the beautiful views of these waterfalls. Situated just off the 16 you access these falls by an underpass under the road and a trail with sets of steps to get to them. The views of the torrents of water falling... More

The trail to the falls is very well maintained and easy walking. There are a few steps going up, but it is not too difficult. The falls are nice and enjoyable, and it is a lovely, short walk along the Ellis River.

Very close to Mount Washington, worth a visit on your way to or from Mount Washington. Short walk from parking area via tunnel under the highway, but there are steps so not very accessible. Water falls down from a fair height ideal for picture taking. We had a picnic lunch with us and sat on a flat rocky ledge and... More

A beautiful waterfall that is so worth the walk! A large parking lot is available off of 16. The path goes under the road, and then downhill to the falls. Most of the path is built up with stairs. Great photo location. Beautiful 64 ft fall that plunges into an emerald pool…wish there was swimming!

A 10 minute walk to a great waterfall. Stop at the top or take the 120 or so rock steps down for the great bottom view. You may huff and puff on the way up but there are plenty easy resting points.

Glen Ellis Falls is easily accessed and certainly worth a visit, a great option for families. We spent a lot of our time taking pictures as we visited in the fall where colours were amazing, overall a lovely spot to enjoy the tranquility of nature.

Easy access via a tunnel under route 16. No hiking necessary with well maintained stairs to the bottom. Shady and cool on a hot day.

Wow, I sat and meditated out by the Ellis River several times during my stays at the Inn at Ellis River. Its a quiet and tranquil place to meditate or read or just rest.

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
