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!

Save it for a day when there won’t be many hikers on the trail.

Excellent hike, challenging trail, fabulous views!

Great hike. Fairly easy. Dog made it up without problems. Great short hike with major payoff.

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 rewarding view at top, trail itself also features a waterfall. But it is heavily trafficked—the trailhead is located right behind a visitors center & train stop
