Lovely walk

awesome trail, not very well marked at the peak. The dog's loved it.

It's a good hike, however it is not very well marked.

amazing views!

I was up there yesterday and all trails are closed for mud season. Rattlesnake, Morgan, Percival.

Fantastic short trail with breathtaking views on 5 waterfalls, including famous 40-foot "Fall of Song". Just 1,5 mile overloop terrain often called "The little Yosemite of the East" provides great views on some of the most beautifull New Hampshire waterfals: Song of Fall, Briddle Veil Falls, Roaring Falls, Twin Falls and Whittier Falls. Located within the Castle in the Clouds Conservation Area, near Moultonborough. Can be combined with longer Mt.Roberts trail.

Fantastic views. Good for all hiking levels.

Gives you a decent workout, but not too tough, the view from the summit(s) is very nice.

I have done this walk many times over the years. The trail passes over family land. Love the river.

This was a great trail. We are beginners and found it well worth the hike to see the falls. They were completely frozen where we were standing on the falls. next time we need to complete the loop. Weather was getting a bit gloomy this day.

I went on a rather cold day a few weeks ago and broke trail. I would not consider this trail hard. I did the loop, coming from Arethusa Falls. It’s rather moderate, considering other trails in the area. It was hard only because we had to break trail, almost the entire loop. Although now there is probably mostly ice left..

Fantastic views

Pretty walk. Lots of evidence of Sasquatch, if you have met Todd, you will understand. It's not a loop, I repeat: this is not a loop!

Attempted July 2017. We didn’t make it to the top- got caught in a rain storm and the trail was quickly deteriorating, so we decided to turn back. Awesome views, crossing the river was a bit hard, both me and my friend got a bit damp from it.

First time hiking. first trail me and my girlfriend picked. its hard very worth it. over dressed not doing that again. it took all day. we stopped and rested couple times. this trail gives you everything well worth it.

Very easy hike and you get an AMAZING view of Squam Lake! The kids loved it. We went on Black Friday choosing to #optoutside

Awesome, absolutely gorgous views and pictures.

Hiked up Arethusa Falls and around the loop to Frankenstein cliff trail loop.
At this time of year with a little snow on the ground....Arethusa Falls was fairly easy. Coming down the Frankenstein Cliff trail was definitely more difficult.
Great trip overall!

Nice hike. Took blue trail up, yellow trail down. Yellow trail is a quick way down. Overall, a nice hike.

Starting to get icy near the summit so be mindful. Took about 3 1/2 hours to complete at a fast pace. Very beautiful views at the summit.

Hiked this trail last august. Didn't know about this app then. The waterfalls hike is beautiful and a great spot to rest and relax before heading to the cliff. Hike up to the cliff is very challenging but the view at sunset is amazing. Absolutely amazing. Hiking back down in the dark was a bit tricky but doable once reaching the railroad tracks.

My wife and I just completed this trail. Awesome views ... the falls are beautiful. That being said it is definitely a workout. The beginning of the trail is hard to follow because of numerous downed trees. After the train trestle it's up hill all the way. We Where lucky to catch the train heading back down to North Conway. No not a ride just a view as it made it's way past us....would do this one a gain for sure....

Great short hike with awesome views of Squam and Winnipesaukee. Pretty short but the inclined on the way up still gets you a good workout!

Nice half Day hike for people in the area. The first 1.5 mile and old logging road also used by snowmobiles in the winter, then take a left at the kiosk . This nice woods trail, open Beech and Maple ridge. Some rocky and root areas. Trailhead is in parking lot at the end of Moose Mtn. road in Brookfield N. H.

If you want to do the falls and not be disappointed with a pretty easy and highly trafficked out and back hike start with frankstein cliffs. It knocks out the steep parts in the beginning of the home rather than dragging it out by going to the falls first. We did it with our 90lb dog and carried our kid on our back. I'd agree with the hard description it is given. Had to pick up the dog in a few spots to help over the rocks but all in all a good workout. If it's going to be a hot day, I'd start early.

Take the parking lot to the right of the school, instead of the one by the playground. Took yellow trail up and blue trail down. Summit does not have a view, but ledge just before the summit does. Nice 180 with view of Lake Winnipessaukee, Gunstock Mtn Resort, and the peaks of Belknap and Gunstock.

Hard but worth it. Take the long way from the Mt Major parking lot for added distance.

Definitely go up the Cliff side. Really fun hike. It can be quick. Going up the Cliff is steep, but quick. Views at the top are great and the waterfall towards the other end is a great reward.

We tried accessing the trail off Mount Major Highway, onto Jesus Valley Road (turns into a dirt road), about 500 feet before the trail mark, there were signs up for private property, no trespassing on both sides of the road. We had to tie a round and were not able to access trail from there. Just a heads up...
