My pops and I got here early and there was almost no one around. The hike is easy enough for this 47 year old without any troubles. The falls is very pretty, with a fairly long drop of 64 feet. The hike to and from is very scenic. An easily accessible waterfalls in the White Mountains is a good thing!!

It was sleeting out when we drove by but we still stopped. We are from Maine so we are used to it. Was extra careful on the trail and step and was worth it. Very impressive and some cool history if you read the plaques.

Park in the lot on RT 16 at Pinkham. I visited Glen Ellis Falls with my husband and three kids under 13. This is a short, but enchanting walk via tunnel under the highway, and then descending a multitude of stone stairs to see the 60' falls. Loved it. Will visit again.

This was a nice hike, but go early not much place to park. We went one day and couldn't find a spot so we came back early the next day.

Easy to reach the falls, just a relatively short walk along a well maintained path, with stone steps making the trip easy. Very pretty spot.

Easy to get a great view of the falls, very few people when we were there but I imagine it would be busy at peak times

The trail to the top of the falls is short (1/4 mile) and flat; but then there are many steps down the trail to the bottom of this 65 foot high mini wonder, but the trek is worth it. It's a beautiful little area with what seems like a golden pool at the bottom (actually, the sand makes the water... More

This is a very good falls with a high volume of water and lots of spray if it's windy. There is a parking lot on the left side of hwy 16 going North towards Mt. Washington maybe 5 miles north of Jackson. The path to the waterfall goes thru a tunnel underneath hwy 16 and down a couple flights of... More

Glen Ellis Falls is one of many in New Hampshire. It is located on route 16 in Pinkham Notch. There is a large parking lot then you need to walk under the road through a tunnel to the other side, easy walk. Once there it becomes a bit more strenuous, having to walk quite a few stairs to be able... More

The falls are worth a stop if you are in the area. They are nice, and the "hike" to them is pretty easy and quick (it does involve a number of stairs though). However, not something I would go out of my way to see.
