Super quick walk to a gorgeous waterfall. Trail does have some water on it so I could see where it could get slippery if you aren’t careful. A must see if you’re in the area!

Not to be missed. If you like waterfalls, this is a wonderful, quick walk to a beautiful falls. Nice stonework makes the walk possible. Watch out for potholes in the parking lot.

Very short "hike" (there are well-maintained stairs pretty much the whole way through, so not sure I'd call it that) with gorgeous views of the falls. Worth a quick stop. Very family-friendly.

Saw the reviews and went for it... Kid Friendly, Easy Hike, sounds great right? Add a 4yo and an 18 month old strapped to your back with heavy snow conditions and you can turn this from easy to treacherous in no time! We trudged along willingly in anticipation for the sites to see. The underpass stood about 5 feet. For someone 6'2 with an infant on his back this was not ideal. We made it to the first waterfall, admired the beauty and set out for more... until... the snow gave out and I found myself with one leg waist deep in the snow, the other laying atop the ice path with 50 lbs of infant and carrier on my back! This truly made a fantastic adventure for us first timers to Glenn Ellis Falls! We will definitely return to see the sites. We chuckled returning to see the reviews finding out there were STEPS the entire way! :D There were no steps on our trip that's for sure!

Super gorgeous but extremely popular. It's a quick walk from the parking lot with stairs the whole way. Still, it was gorgeous to see and I got some great pictures of the kids!

Beautiful. Calming. You must experience the powerful spray at the base of the waterfall.

Really neat! Quick stop off the highway with an amazing waterfall. Recommend checking out the trails surrounding the area as well.

Make sure to bring some money because it is 5 dollars to park, but that will be good for other spots in the area for the day so if you are planning more hikes it is fine. It was a little hard with the kids coming back up because of all the stairs and they got tired, but the falls were very beautiful.

Stopped by on the way to Mt Washington. Well worth it. Very short walk but a few dozen steps. $5 self-pay parking. Best $5 I've spent. Explore the area around the falls if you have time.

Brought our dogs there today. It’s not a long trail but really fun! There are some nice spots to stop before you reach the main waterfall to cool off the dogs or your feet.
