This was an easy hike on a well-marked trail. The falls weren't 'full' when we went, unfortunately, but not much you can do about that. Loved the little signs that tell you a bit about the falls. Definitely recommend seeing this gem.

Just north of Jackson off of HWY 16 is a simple and easy hike fit for anyone as long as they can handle steps. We went on a hot day in July and it was gorgeous and not too busy, although a steady stream of people as it is an easy trip. Entire trip can be done in well less... More

Great hike for families. My grandson loved going under the road through the tunnel then hiking to the falls. There were some viewing stops on the way. In nice weather parking can get tricky. There is a NH park fee on the honor system so bring some ones.

We cranked out four waterfall hikes (all short!) on a cool and drizzly day. This one is the most dramatic. Really stunning. Quite different from Diana's Baths, which I also loved. Lots of stairs down and back but overall, quite easy.

I have a child with mild physical challenges, we held his hand and he did great. Easy hike, low commitment, big payoff. It's a dramatic and pretty place.

I stumbled across this while driving down the highway. The falls were only .3 miles from the highway. An easy and scenic walk. The falls were quite impressive. Terrain was mostly easy rock steps. It could be slippy when wet, but suitable for just about anybody. There are other trails from the same parking lot for those who have more... More

These falls are 65 feet in height. They are always powerful- not just a trickle. They can be viewed after a short easy walk.

Great walk with beautiful view of the falls. Easy to head down with a little cardio headed back up. Worth the stop if you're in the Jackson area.
