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.

It was a bit hard to find the trailhead, wish it was better marked but I'm glad we stuck it out and asked around. The falls were nice, we didn't get all the way to the top because we had some small kids but we were happy with what we saw!

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.

One of our favorite’s to do with the kids!!

really great first time hikers trail. overlook at the end is decent but nothing compared to others in the area.

Even in “mud season” was dry and beautiful. Great views, beautiful brook. Easy

easy trail by white mountain standards, scramble to top is short but definitely steep. Would not attempt if you are scared of heights

a ton of ticks at the beginning, be mindful

Awesome!!! Nice walk even for a Fay Guy like me!!!

Nice falls, easy trail to follow and well maintained. Main lookout is above the falls. Continue down granite staircase to view falls from the bottom.

Nice quick hike. While it is a series of three waterfalls, the first is the tallest. Don’t stop there though. Cross the stream and continue up a slight grade until you see the sign that says “end of trail”. Not easy to find trailhead. Enter parking lot “C” of Wildcat ski area and proceed until you cross a small cement bridge. The trailhead will be on your left. If you get to the parking lot, you passed it.

Beautiful falls and multipul platforms from which to view them. It's a super short hike in. Lots of steps which could be a bit of a challenge for some, but definitely doable with a few pauses for rest.

My first time snowshoeing! Glad it was here! Can’t wait to return. Beautiful scenic views.

One of my favorite spots! Really easy hike.

Not much to see until the end, but the view is very nice.

I wouldn’t rate it as “easy,” although it is fairly short. The view at the top is very nice, especially considering the effort required to reach it. Square Ledge has a large drop, so be careful if you have children or a fear of heights.

Great short hike for beginners, especially snow shoeing. We caught the trail after a snowfall and was perfect snow shoeing conditions. Glad I had them on me to make the hike a bit easier.

Went mid Jan. parking and trailhead were closed. Had to park on side of road and trek through the snow to meet up with the trail. Great winter waterfall! Short and easy trail.

Beautiful, peaceful short hike. The pond is absolutely serene, and mountains as a backdrop made for excellent scenery. Half way up the trail, I was treated to see a kingfisher pluck a trout (I assume) out of the stream. At the pond there is a huge beaver dam and I would assume if one was quiet in early a.m or eve, you would have a good chance of seeing a moose. Definitely coming back in a week or two to see the peak colors of fall!

A beautiful day and a bit steep in spots for myself and my son in law. I am 62 and we are both novice hikers, but definitely worth the effort once on top of the rocks. A great view of God's country. 3 1/2 hrs in and back including 30 min. on the top.
