Beautiful waterfall. A nice introduction to the White Mountains area.

Nice peaceful walk some up/down terrain and lots of leaves in the Fall. Along the water smells like raw sewage not sure if this is all the time or just this (1st) time. I'll be back and update.

As of recent with all the rain a lot of the trail at the bottom side of the falls is all flooded out so you cant walk very far. But still very enjoyable to go and check the falls out!

This trail is ABSOLUTELY pristine. What an amazing place to enjoy nature. ESPECIALLY THIS TIME OF YEAR!!!
Cant wait to check it out in the winter!

Ring trail still in good shape late October; rocks, roots, & mud appear to be the reason for the moderate rating. 2 mile trail at an easy pace, just over an hour.

We had a great time hiking the .3 miles in snow to the falls. It's a beautiful place and a short walk. The stairs were closed to view from the upper area but we still got great pictures and took home some wonderful memories.

easy trail, great falls, lots to explore

Views are great, but really crowded. Tourist spot.

A very satisfying hike. Not to challenging, but is a steady uphill hike. At the summit you’ll find lots of cool information like guides about the wildlife and trees/plants. Nice views too.

Nice hike, river view and historic markers. We took our 4 year old grandson and had fun teaching him how to identify the different types of trees and leaves, moss mushrooms. Picnic tables and small grills available and a playground. Only complaint would be about the hikers that let their dogs off leash.

Pleasant, easy hike to get to and from the falls. The area of the falls was more than we expected. Our 50 lb pup had no troubles.

Great place ❤️

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.

Though it’s said to be a “must see”, parking is not clearly marked on the way up, the top lot is tourist mayhem. “Trail” is a walking path with lots of people. Good to check it off the list, but not our favorite spot.

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

We took the ring trail to witch havel which takes you to the top. We were there for about an hour and a half including about 20 minutes at the top. There are lots of other trails and you can make it a longer hike if desired. all trails are very well marked. I wouldn't say it's an "easy" hike but we are beginners and we did it no problem

Fun and easy hike with beautiful falls. Very similar to the Basin in Franconia Notch.

Very nice. Just exactly what our family of four needs for an afternoon of exercise.

anticlimactic and small...so even one other group makes it feel crowded

Good short hike (less than an hour round trip) to Ripley Falls. You can park at the end of a recently patched asphalt road going park way up the slope.

Easy trip to the falls. Beautiful!

Our new favorite trail to hike with our two boys. They are 9 and 6 and loved climbing all over the rocks.

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.

This .6 mile hike into Ripley’s Fall is so worth the journey. There are a lot of rocks and roots to traverse. The path is narrow in places and it was a little wet in places (we went in Sept, probably is very wet in Spring). The granite face of the falls is amazing, creating more of a water slide then falls. The slab is wide so I would imagine in the Spring it’s even more grand.
