Hidden waterfall

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

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!

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
