We visited in early October, when the leaves were turning. You will park on one side and go through a tunnel under the highway. The views just keep getting better. There's one vista neat the top of the falls, from there, you head down 60-100...More

Young and old can enjoy this short walk with a big pay-off! While hundreds of people with limited time and hiking ability opt for Diana's Bath. Glen Falls is a great option. Even older visitors can easily handle the stairs if they take their time....More

When we visited in October, 64 ft high Glen Ellis Falls was quite impressive with a great amount of water flow. The Falls are reached by just a very short walk (0.3-mile) from the parking lot. There is a pit toilet available near the parking...More

We had a "hang tag" from the US Forest and Park service, so we didn't have to hassle with parking. The walk down to the base of the falls was easy - someone said 99-steps. There are several observation platforms on the path, so you...More

Park at the Glen Ellis Scenic Area car park (you'll need a pen & change to put in the parking envelope) and then a short walk (0.3 miles) on a fairly easy path leads to these beautiful falls.

This is one of my favorite New Hampshire spots, never experienced it in the fall with the leaves changed to fall colors so this was special.

Beautiful falls in Pinkham Notch. Parking is $5 unless you have a Golden Eagle Pass. Just leave it on the dash and you're covered. Moderately difficult walk down to the falls but quite beautiful. Located just south of the AMC visitor's center.

This is a waterfall hike not to be missed! The hike itself is a good workout, but the hike is awesome amongst all of the trees and rocks, and the waterfall at the end is fantastic! Such a beautiful spot.

Apologies, I’ve only just seen your question. Hopefully you’ve got the answers to help you find it. We had a sat Nav that helped us but we still sailed past the sign!
