A great trail with the wondrous 140 foot fall being the greatest reward of all. We spent over an hour at the falls picnicking and wading and taking a dip under the fall. It was truly memorable. The trail to the fall is not terribly exciting but not monotonous.

Bring a towel and prepare to get wet. The shower under the cool refreshing falls is truly unforgettable.

Was not an easy hike by any means. Accessed the Willey ridge trail from the Ethan Pond Trail. Like previous reviews the last scramble all 1.1 miles seemed to never end. If only we hadn’t been socked in the clouds today, then maybe the strenuous climb would have felt better. Despite my frustration with the challenge I feel accomplished and tried my best to enjoy the climb. This is a climb for those who are ready for a challenge!!

Great trail, the waterfall is beautiful. Please note that coming down off frakenstein cliff is difficult and dangerous since its so steep. Watch your footing and hold onto trees when you can.

It started at Diana’s Bath, then became a nine mile hike. I loved every minute of it. Got some great pictures during the hike.

Beautiful hike. Two steep inclines. First one is hard/moderate. Second one is moderate. Nice view at the top. About an hour up. Took paved road down. Didn't bump into one person on the path on a Wednesday afternoon. Took my 12 year old son.

Easy walk, great for small children. The walk over to Saco River from the kiosk was well worth it as you could see how high storms have pushed up the river into the woods.

picked out of a hat, steep in the beginning and really pretty at the top. we did white horse and prob will do athedra next time

Great little walk through a field, through the woods and around a pond. I wouldn't really call it a hike, but it is very pretty with views of flower field, river and pond. Super easy and short. Would be perfect for little children to walk in and enjoy some nature. One little thing. I was glad to have the map as the trails were not well marked and the app helped us make sure we were still on the trail.

My wife and I (both 68 y/o) went up Frankenstein Cliff trail, took the .5 mile spur to Falcon Cliff (just OK), over to Arethusa Falls (very worth seeing) and took the Bemis side trail down to two more beautiful smaller falls. Took us 6 hours as we don't move as fast as we use too. A good, not too long and not too strenuous hike.

Solid trail. Not difficult and makes for a nice day. If you’ve done other trails in the Whites, this could be a bit underwhelming, but it’s fun nonetheless.

Hardest hike I’ve ever done but the view is worth it. I personally wouldn’t consider this moderate. Didn’t run into many people which made it even better.

We went up the cliffs way. One confusing part of the trail was early at the railroad tracks. You have to follow along the tracks till you get to the railroad bridge. Before the bridge you pick the trail back up. Nice trail otherwise.

I also wouldn’t classify this as an easy hike. Between the gradual but steady steepness and rock scrambles, this would be more fairly considered a moderate hike. We started at Willey House to Kedron Flume to Willey Range Trail.

It took us about 2 hours to hike up and about 1 1/2 to get down. Slippery in a lot of spots but the reward at the top was well worth the tougher than expected conditions. Would definitely recommend this hike!

worth the climb, beautiful summit

This was for sure more hard that I anticipated. Took about an hour up. Took multiple breaks but the views were worth it.

Amazing hike, did this with boyfriend and our dog. Took Arethusa falls trail up and Frankenstein cliff trail down. Some parts of Arethusa were a bit muddy, and quite a bit of loose leaf litter/gravel on the way down. Other than that a perfect hike and well worth the views!!

Sunday 6/3/18 was the perfect day for a hike- it was sunny, 70° and pretty quiet on the trail. Most of the trail to Arethusa falls was dry and easy to traverse. The water was low enough to go down to the river bed safely and put our feet in some cold pools of water. Trail to the cliff from Arethusa falls was clear and easy to traverse although the soil is loose in many places which was the only thing that made it tough to navigate, especially going down hill. Whole loop took us about 4-5 hours with lots of stops for pictures and snacks. very quiet, only saw about a dozen other hikers all day. Would 100% recommend, it was a beautiful way to spend a Sunday!

Would not classify this as easy or moderate at all. I would consider myself a fairly seasoned hiker and found this trail to be harder than several of the trails up Washington or Jefferson. The trail starts out nice with a steady incline, levels off for a bit but then gets very steep. For only being like 4200 feet this mountain never seemed to end, and when it did the views were not worth the work. Lots of small loose stone on the trail made descending difficult. Would not recommend for beginners or anyone without much experience.

A nice hike to the Falls which are gorgeous. Frankenstein trail is a bit of a monster with tons of roots, rocks and steep challenging narrow paths through dense and dark woods. Great vistas when you hit the exposed areas.

Ran/fast packed this one. Awesome views. The 360 views at the peak are excellent. It is quite grueling. A lot of up in the middle miles.

Went from Diana’s Baths to top of North Moat and back - be careful this is a 10.7 mile round trip hike, not 7.9 as advertised. The 7.9 takes you to the bottom of where the steeps really start. Definitely worth the extra hour as the views are fantastic once you are at the actual top.

Couple of steep spots, some nice views

Both Arethusa and Frankenstein’s cliff are easily one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen. The Arethusa trail is moderate, but one your way back make sure to look to your left and take Frankenstein’s Cliff trail. That’s where the real work begins. Pretty difficult, but extremely worth it.

Awesome trail! Some parts were tough but the view from the cliffs is outstanding, very rewarding hike

Beautiful but difficult! Worth it!

It was pretty awesome!! The falls where all breath taking, especially the big one, such a beauty! Took the yellow track, it was good and challenging. Coming down is steep and slippery, the leaves would make me fall on my bottom even with hiking boats and sticks. If you see a empty train track, take a right, then follow the blue and yellow signs to the lot!! Loved it overall.

Amazing hike! make sure you do Bemis brook (yellow trail) that shoots off of the blue trail. Its a steep climb at the end but very rewarding as there is two beautiful waterfalls.

Great hike and waterfall! Great time of year to check it out :)

Hiked this one a couple of years ago. A difficult climb in places, spectularly rewarding at the falls, which are exquisite. The hike back to the world is less taxing and quite pleasant. pack snacks and lots of water.
