A very flat trail with lots of railroad ties. The falls were spectacular. Natural waterslide so bring your swim gear. You won't regret it after hiking during hot weather

Slow and long incline all the way up the trail- biking cuts the time down by 80% to reach the falls where some of the best swimming holes can be found. Coasting the 3 miles back down the bumpy rail tracks is awesome on the bikes. Not so awesome of a walk though which we've done before.

This trail is more like a leisurely walk up a slight incline than a hike. Good for strollers, young kids and dogs on leashes. The hike was lacking but the pools and rocks to play on at the top in the river are well worth it. People were sliding down the rocks like slides

My favorite woods, just for the sake of memorable moments with amazing people, as well as pushing myself to ends i've never dreamed of. Stuck in the lightning storm and climbing to Mt. Bond - Best adventures ever!

Hiked a part of this trail the day after doing the Lafayette Loop. It was very peaceful hike and a great way to wind down from the previous day's hike since it's mostly flat. The views aren't amazing, but it was still very beautiful in the fall. It's about 3.2 miles (6.4mi RT) to the Franconia Falls (take a left right before the bridge to Pemigewasset Wilderness).

Great Multiple day hike with great spots to camp even in the deep deep woods. We started in Franconia Notch and finished where this trail head is and capped 10 different peaks. The only downside was the incredibly buggy exit path through some swamp land. The worst bugs I have ever encountered but it could have just been bad timing and other than that every aspect of the hike was incredible, highly recommend as a multiple day trek for any experienced hikers

Awesome day hike or backpacking trip. You enter the trail and hike 2.9 miles to the camp. This trail is great no matter what season or weather you encounter. At the end of the 2.9 miles boarders the Pemigewasset Wilderness which includes the following mountains; Lafayette, Lincoln, Liberty, Flume, Galehead, Garfield, Owl's Head, North Twin, South Twin, Bond, Bondcliff, West Bond, Carrigain, the Hancocks, Tom, Field, Willey, and Zealandas. So your backpacking/hiking options are endless! I love to take my kids and beginner backpackers in overnight to the 2.9 mile camp. We spend the day crossing the river and heading to Franconia Falls to swim.
