This one is a favorite for me. Hiked it many times and is often one of the first of the season. The last trip up was last year and crossed paths with a bear, hoping to avoid a rerun of that tomorrow.

Nice trail with a little climbing that was well worth it. Falls were beautiful and nice spot to have lunch

The falls were rushing with a little snow still around

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.

A great burn. Well-marked trail. No snow or mud left. Bluebird views.

Hiked this on easter with a couple buddys, great hike almost no snow. A littile ice here and there..

Safe, relatively quick, and well-marked trail. A good burn even for fit hikers. No mud or snow left this year. The black flies and mosquitoes are terrible, and if you have a dog I would bring extra water because there is no access to streams. Other than that, a great hike close to North Conway with gorgeous 360 views from the tower.

Beautiful day for this hike. Be very careful if you decide to climb up to the top of the falls. Otherwise we had the entire place to ourselves for about a 1/2 hour. Perfect!

Rocky uphill start. But well worth the uphill hike with the ending falls view

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

Beautiful but difficult! Worth it!

We took the Bemis Trail, saw beautiful Falls and cascades. Then Trail turned very steep and we were basically rock scrambling to get back to Arethusa Trail. When we finally reached Arethusa Falls, the tough parts seemed to be a distant memory at best. Beautiful Falls, God is good...all the time and all the time God is good!!

Great trail. The Bemis brook part of the trail was a bit steeper than I expected at the end to join up with the main trail, but worth it for the extra 2 falls. Overall well worth the time. No snow on the trail but a bit muddy in places

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.

Did this one on a lark. A sneaky difficult and fun l, short-ish climb with unexpectedly one of the best views of the entire region. The views at the top are easily 5 star on their own. I started at roughly 10 and was back at the car by 2:30 on a cloudless day

One of the most beautiful waterfalls I have ever seen.

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.

My favorite hike in New England! It always feels like you’re at the top but there’s always more to this trail, I defiantly recommend and make sure to bring extra water and some snacks

This is NOT a moderate trail. Very difficult due to sharp ascent pretty much 90% of the trail. All pretty much rock stairs up. Nice views though. Just not a leisurely hike up.

Nice hike, falls we're beautiful, full of water.

I always enjoy this one, So many peaks visable. Not muddy or slippery yesterday.

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

Perfect day to climb, bluebird, cool and lots of water cascading!!

The beginning of this trail is currently under water and will take some creative maneuvering/ bushwacking to get past the first few hundred feet. There also seems to be a bridge out over a brook near the bottom, but it was a relatively easy crossing. Overall, a great hike, challenging but worth it for the great views. A little bit of snow near the top in places but it will be gone soon.

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.

Amazing! Falls were full with spring run-off. First 2-300 yards is moderate then trail levels off until the falls.
We were unable to cross at the splash basin because of current and wet rocks.
Takes about an hour or so in and about 40 mins out. (Sign at road says 20 mins.)
Beautiful falls, my second time. Will go again!

Lots of fun. Snow and ice has melted enough that it was manageable for a newer hiker. Views are great and worth the hike. We went later In the day and were slipping quite a bit on the wet rock near the top. Plan to take your time coming down.

Excellent hike. Very icy sections this time of year but the falls are great. Properly equipped you will have a great time. Just FYI, the first bridge is out, but the rocks gave a decent path across.

Half of this route is on a paved road - I would avoid this unless you love pavement.

Summited Wiley this morning around 11:30 via the Ethan Pond Trail I wanted to get Field and Tom as well, but the cloud cover was still pretty dense. Beyond the cairn, around the next bend to the right, it was pretty much pea soup. As of today, all the streams are still easily crossed, but the posthole danger is very high, especially on the snow bridges over the streams. The first two sections of stairs were an easy walk-up, but I could have used an axe or two on the upper ones, as they were still ice-covered. All in all, beautiful trail, nicely maintained!
