A quick and easy walk on a clearly marked pathway leads you to the waterfalls/swimming holes, gorgeous area! Visited on a summer Sunday, it was crowded with lots of kids and dogs but still relaxing. Easy to find your own area to hangout or to dip your feet in the water.

Great views at the top. We did the trail clockwise, and I would recommend it. Not an easy hike (‘moderate’ seems more appropriate)

nice hike before heading home

This is a nice, family friendly hike that is not too difficult with nice, if not spectacular views from the ledges. The trail itself is interesting for the large boulders strewn about and some old growth pine and hardwoods. We did the loop clockwise, and I recommend that.

My Eisenhower was terrific. However Mt Clinton road and parking area is still closed. Adds round trip of 5 additional flat miles The summit was misty and high 60’s. Edmands trail was in good shape, a little wet, and one of three footbridges was unusable. Lots of wildflowers.

Really cool place. Dog friendly, walk in was easy. Arrive early to get parking is a must!

Easy walk, great for small children. The walk over to Saco River from the kiosk was well worth it as you could see how high storms have pushed up the river into the woods.

great hike to do in an hour

Nice quick hike. Busy. Some trail work on bridges - there is a make-shift bridge right past the one that is being reset. Lot of people out there without water - which amazes me because it is still a hike and mainly uphill on the way to the falls. The falls are a great surprise at the end.

Easy .5mile hike to the falls. A quick pitstop of an hour tops.

Great hike to beautiful falls! Trails are pretty rocky but clearly marked. Very crowded on a Saturday. Bemis trail has a very steep section, but multiple very nice falls to stop and swim or picnic. Overall beautiful hike! Took about 2 hours in and out with pretty active group taking breaks / crowded trail.

it is marvellous

Tough, rocky, fairly well maintained.
Not too buggy, mostly shady.
Worth the walk for the falls.
Crowded on weekends with good weather.
Water is quite cold!
Bring a towel and a lunch!

Great little walk through a field, through the woods and around a pond. I wouldn't really call it a hike, but it is very pretty with views of flower field, river and pond. Super easy and short. Would be perfect for little children to walk in and enjoy some nature. One little thing. I was glad to have the map as the trails were not well marked and the app helped us make sure we were still on the trail.

Love this hike! Recommend taking the bemis brook trail which offers awesome swimming opportunities and great views.

Gorgeous at top - 2 beautiful ledges. Not difficult but perfect if you are not a hard core hiker.

Great trail with many scenic waterfall views and opportunities to get in the water in a couple spots. We have hiked the trail three or four times and would recommend it for a drier day. The trail can be very muddy after it has rained to the point where I was sinking ankle deep with each step. For those who want to follow the trail all the way to Lonesome Lake, be aware that you will need to get past a difficult river crossing. It was doable, but our dogs struggled to make the crossing and had to be carried across one at a time.

A pleasant forest hike to a stunning waterfall. We did the Arethusa Falls trail out and went along the Bemis Brook trail on the way back. The Bemis Brook Trail offers opportunities to put your feet in the stream-- it was ice cold even on the day we went, which had temperatures in the 90s. The last section that connects the Bemis Brook Trail back to the Arethusa Falls Trail isn't hard to climb, but is a bit steep.

Incredibly difficult hike for this out of shape 41 year old, but well worth it.

Loved it, very busy but worth it! The trail is longer than I thought but very open and not hard at all.

Hiked this yesterday with my DH! White Mountain National Forest is one of our favorite places to explore so we enjoyed this hike. The trail up is a bit steep and muddy/slippery in many areas but plenty of areas to grab on to a tree or rest if needed. We plan to come back sometime in the Spring and go all the way to Lonesome Lake. It was a beautiful day and it was so nice to be able to step off the trail here and there and enjoy the beautiful and serene waters with different views each time! :-)

Trail was very muddy because of the the rain. Was difficult to tell where to cross the river (not enough markings) and there was no marking to cross over to the cascade brook trail so we had to turn around and walk down the way we came.

A great little hike with amazing views.

My GPS stopped working so, to get there from Crawford’s Notch area (Conway Scenic Railroad, etc), continue on 302 passes the Dry River Campground and about 1/3 mike down on the right, you’ll see the sign.

Completed the Arethusa Falls section on the trail (1.5 miles) with my 9 and 6 year old today and it was awesome! It took us about 90 minutes to go up because of multiple snack and water breaks, but only about 40 minutes to come down. The incline tapers off a little bit about halfway up and there are lots of boulders and fallen logs for jumping on. The falls are beautiful, and not very crowded. Def recommend for families, especially if you’re able/willing to take your time heading up.

My husband and two year old daughter enjoyed the trail this morning. My husband carried her in a pack. Parts were a little steep so I think that this trail was appropriately rated moderate. There were three really nice views and the trail views were lovely with a bunch of boulders to have fun on. There was a fun look out point if you follow a “bluff” sign painted on a rock. We loved it and it was a great hike for a young family. Littles definitely couldn’t do it on foot but older kids would kill it scrambling up the rocks!
