A beautiful waterfall right off Route 16. You park your car and take a short hike under the road and then follow the river down several sets of stairs. At the bottom is a wonderful view from the pool upto the top of the lower...More

Once we found the parking area to the mild hike we found it to be a very enjoyable experience. The sign for the NH. State parking lot was taken down due to an accident the day before. A small fee is needed to park unless...More

I have hiked this before and always enjoy it. Plan on about 30 minutes or much longer if you go to the bottom section. It is mostly flat until you get to the steep stairs to the bottom section. If you have a walking stick...More

There's a short uphill walk from the parking lot and then lots of stairs to reach the falls but its worth it. We saw a few brave souls trying to get in the water at the base of the rushing falls. Definitely worth a visit....More

Glen Ellis Falls is a beautiful place to visit. We usually make a point to visit here whenever in NH. The natural flow of the water flowing thru the rocks is beautiful. The sound is so peaceful. You are able to walk thru the water...More

Glen Ellis Falls is a great place to stop for a relatively short, easy hike. The falls were beautiful. We managed to visit on a late Sunday afternoon, so it wasn't crowded at all. I would imagine that it might not be as serene with...More

This is a must do think if you're in the area. It's a short very easy hike (maybe 1/2 mile path ea. way}. There in April and a some ice/snow at base of the falls area and hand rails. Just be careful and have fun...enjoy!

Not the biggest, but well worth the short walk along nicely done granite steps. Two nice views - one from top and one at bottom. Great for kids... just keep an eye out on steps and near water. Easy parking and access. Good for young...More

A great place to go on a hot day for a cold dip or any nice day to listen and watch the falling waters.
