Easy trail, quick payoff if you only have a little time to spare. We're not experienced hikers, saw ages 2 to 72 walking with no problem. Falls are worth the short walk. Pit toilets at entrance, $5/vehicle fee.

Really nice easy hike with beautiful views in the Fall. Had the place to myself on a drizzly day!

Love this waterfall. Easy trail to a very cool waterfall.

great short walk with beautiful views

Nice trail, very easy and long.
With foliage is very beautiful but I don’t think that during regular season is can be so impressive.
It’s a long walk through the forest with few points of interest. I was hoping for more scenic view.
I did the east side of the trail.

Very family friendly, my 1 1/2 to had a great time! Stunning views of natural pools

Straightforward walk for most of the mileage, but nice scenery. Plenty of room for the traffic. Several really nice views overlooking the rocks and river, but most is forest. Waterfall bit is slightly tougher footing, but not that bad. Great place for a lunch and break before heading back.

Nice little trail. If you stay in Littleton, make this short trip for a nice view of the city. This is a nice warm up trail to start the day.

Great trail with gorgeous views of the falls

Awesome for a trail run!

Great family friendly hike. Easy enough but a decent workout. My dog loved it too. Beautiful views of Squam Lake at the top.

Oct. 3 2018, very nice easy trail, leaves were beautiful, lots of places to leave trail and walk to the river or small creeks. Easy for kids.

Beautiful hike, however you have to find the trail first!! Not the easiest place to find. We parked at The Thompson House Eatery and then crossed 16 at the Lodge at Jackson Village and turned right into Green Hill Rd. Walk past 2 houses on the right and head towards water department signs...in there lies the trail. Even on a rainy day it was a gorgeous hike by the river!

Nice wide trail that's easily accessible. No tough terrain. Well kept and complete with bathrooms, trash cans, picnic table and railings. Quick walk with great waterfall scenery and beautiful wildlife. No real challenge but a great quick family friendly hike close to town.

Absolutely beautiful!

Nice well maintained trails. We took old bridal path to Col trail and made a loop after reaching the peak of west rattle snake. We did a lot of down hill climbing on Col trail before ascending up. A relatively easy trail. We had a four yr old w us who did just great.

This is my new favourite place in NH! A beautiful and easy path to the falls that are seriously just stunning. Parking was an issue, as the lot is small, and you can’t park on the road so get there early.

Very easy walk and highly recommend for kids!
