This is a very nice place to get away from everything. A nice short walk and some people actually went in the water. There are a lot of steps, but easy for most people to get to. The parking fee was $5.00.

The hike down to the falls is easy, although there are some rock steps. The walk down is approximately 10 minutes. It is worth the walk because the view is amazing.

While the falls aren't huge or awe-inspiring, it's a very nice way to spend time in New Hampshire. The walk to the falls is easy and fun.

The walk is short and relatively easy. The trail is smooth and the steps are wide and easy to navigate. Once you reach the bottom you are rewarded with a great natural site. Stop at the other turnouts on the way down the path to...More
