Maybe it's because there was a dry spell but the waterfalls were very small. The hike there was short and that wasn't bad. The water was clear and there was easy access to the pools.

Gorgeous pools of fresh spring water and falls with hiking trails that are great for snow shoe and ski. Very pretty spot.

The road to get here is located right across the street from the Jackson Gore access road. Parking is on the side of the road. We entered through the lower falls and not having bathing suits, opted to hike over the rocks to the upper falls area. Though there were "swimming holes" all along the hike, the upper falls area...

These falls are advertised as being a great place for families to sit, relax and swim. I don't think so. If you're used to visiting places in NH, you will be disappointed. It was a nice little area for my husband and I to walk to the "falls" where we met 4 senior citizens painting. Must have been a class... More

This attraction consists of three small falls over about 1,000ft. All but the upper falls are easy to get to. There are deep pools that excellent for cooling on a hot day. The road to the falls is in tough shape, so don't drive fast! Unless you plan to swim or picnic, plan on less than 2 hrs.

Very close to Castle Hill in Ludlow. Went with my family ( 15 and 18). Park on the side of the road. There are three falls. Seemed like the Middle Falls was the least crowded. Almost like our own pricing Swimming hole. Rocks are slick. Bring water shoes if you have them. You can swim in the pools by the... More

Stumbled upon this watering hole in the evening. Perfect spot for a dip. The water was still very cool, but it was so beautiful we couldn't resist.

Easy access from Route 103 with large boulders to climb / sunbath on. A flowing 23 foot waterfall that is 15 feet 9 inches high. the area is washed bedrock 90 feet wide ending in a short cascade and a large pool of water. Downstream is a second smaller cascade around a small rock island.

Owner of the Timber Inn where we were staying suggested we go see these falls. It was a very easy hike in & the falls were still running with some icing as well. Great photo opts :)!
