Long cascading waterfall with many small pools - best in spring and early summer. Easy trail ascend through hardwoods and along brook. You will have some small steep sections but overall this trail is easy - an excellent hike with kids and dogs. The waterfall is very beautiful but is best seen in the spring and early summer when the water is running best. It tends to dry up in the late summer and fall. This might be a good winter hike.

Moderate hike but steep at end. Great to stop at falls. Very buggy and rocks on trail before tree line were wet and slippery. Would do it again.

This trail was one of my favorites in Mew Hampshire. The waterfalls about a mile and a half up were gorgeous and there's a giant flat rock that you can sit/lay on and enjoy the view. We went right after 4 days of rain so the trail was a bit wet and muddy but the waterfall was roaring. The top was an awesome view! The last part was kind of more like rock climbing to get to the summit but worth it for the view. Definitely would do it again!

Great trail for a shorter day hike! Trail is well marked and offers amazing views at the summit on a clear day. I would rate this more as a lower grade of "strenuous" if you're not accustomed to longer uphill hikes; if you are, then moderate is appropriate. Trail gets to be a lot of fun before the summit - you'll be climbing over and around some rocks.

Bring water, snacks, and bugspray - as the flies and mosquitos were definitely out.

An amazing hike, but I only wish the markings were a bit more clear! View was so worth it though!

First hike ever without a hiking buddy with much trail knowledge. Got off the trail once or twice, but were found to get back fairly easy. Some snow still, but not too much where any extra gear was needed other than sneakers. No bugs. perfect weather and clear skies.

Absolutely gorgeous day at the top today! First ~2 miles from the Kanc was a mix of snow and dirt, and boots were fine. The rest of the climb to the tree line we used micro spikes- lots of slushy snow.
