Beautiful short walk to waterfall

There's not much room to expand and relax once you're at the falls, but it's a short walk with stairs for just about anyone to visit.

The most popular waterfall of the Pinkham Notch area is the 64-foot plunge known as Glen Ellis Falls. With a fine spray of water throughout the warmer months, this waterfall attracts thousands of vacationers from all over. Being situated minutes from other long-time favorite attractions of the area, along with its ease of access, makes this waterfall another White Mountain... More

First of all, make sure you have $3.00 to put in the envelope to pay the Park Service. There is a self service pay board when you first pull in. Second, BUG SPRAY - wear it or at least bring it. Don't leave the car doors open too long or you'll be travelling back with a few buggers. We must... More

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.
