Buttermilk Falls is easily accessible off a side road from Route 103 near its intersection with Route 100. You can park your call just a few yards away, then duck down into the falls where it's shady, cool and gorgeous. Just listening and gazing at the falls is quite therapeutic and a great way to relieve stress. You can even... More

This is a hidden gem up the road from Okemo mountain. Near the end of Buttermilk Falls Ed there is parking for either Okemo State Forest, or at the dead end as well. The waterfalls are beautiful and a ton of fun if you have a dog. Some great short trail hiking, but this area is mainly for the amazing... More

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
