White Mountains Waterfalls

Every spot on the trail has its own beauty. All you have to do is to slow down enough to see it. Real beauty is found in the big moments of our lives and in the tiniest corners of our lives as well.

Park on one side and go through a tunnel under the highway. The views just keep getting better. There’s one vista near the top of the falls, from there, you head down 60-100 stairs to the bottom of the falls. Rocks can be slippery so wear proper footwear.

Young and old can enjoy this short walk with a big pay-off – a beautiful 70-foot waterfall! This is a great add on for a day in the White Mountains.
