“Awesome! The view can't be beat for the easy walk.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013 via mobile

The falls are a short walk from the parking lot, not hard by any standards, steps are carved out and the path is very distinct. There are some placards and view points along the way.
The fall is 64 feet, and the water is crystal clear. Very photo-esque!

“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

We did this hike, if you can call it that, its right off the road the morning we were heading home. The falls are absolutely beautiful! Its one photo opportunity after another. Would highly recommend making this one of your stops!

“A bit of a hike from the parking lot but worth it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013 via mobile

Ellis River Falls has been a favorite place to visit since I was a kid. It's in one of the most beautiful areas of theWhite Mountains. If you're coming from North Conway on Route 16 you pass by the sleepy little town of Jackson Village. Entering Pinkham Notch where the falls are located, you'll be treated to some spectacular views. The trail to the falls is about 1/4 mile from the parking lot. You go under Route 16 and go down a number of stairways to get to the bottom of the falls. There a few bump outs along the trail so you can view different heights and angles of the falls and surrounding landscape. A beautiful spot especially in the off season when there are no crowds.

“a great peaceful walk/ waterfalls”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

A nice way to get a walk in, and see a nice out of the way waterfall.

A short walk (but not one for those who have a hard time walking) from the parking lot area. Maybe a 20 minute walk to the base of the waterfall.

A great and busy place in the summer time.
