A nice and short trail. Very easy to reach the falls. If possible, extend the hike to the top of the falls.

It was a nice day for a hike and the falls were beautiful. The trail is a bit slippery and the roots like to grab at you but all in all a beautiful hike. It has some steep grades and while it is classified as easy it was a good challenge.

Majestic views!
Hard hike, straight up you go.
Grey Jays landed in my hand. No feeding them please.
So amazing at the top. Amazing feeling!!

Completed this hike on 9/01/2017. The day started out quite cold at the base and was VERY windy at the summit. Some areas are a bit of a workout as expected with a Presidential Range 4k. Summit views are great Expected to descend via Webster Cliff however I was a bit under the weather that day and chose cut the day short and go back out the way I came.

Very wet even in the fall.

There are really two routes, one that is mostly on a very clear path along some modest rocks: this "blue dot" trail leads directly to the falls. And another yellow dot trail, which is the Bemis Brook, which follows along the water. This one is much more difficult and while it "meets up" with the other trail, it does require a fairly steep climb up rocky terrain (where the trail seems to "disappear" as one reviewer put it). Follow the yellow dots and you'll meet back up with the blue dot trail to the falls. The bonus of the extra hard work is seeing two small water falls and some nice pools. It's a beautiful hike and worth the extra effort. But don't be fooled, it's more difficult and probably not for little children (especially if you want to continue up the blue trail to the falls).
