The parking area is closed and not plowed. However, for a quick walk (0.5 mi), we parked off the side of the highway and hiked to the frozen falls. Absolutely amazing to see!

Young and old can enjoy this short walk with a big pay-off! While hundreds of people with limited time and hiking ability opt for Diana's Bath. Glen Falls is a great option. Even older visitors can easily handle the stairs if they take their time....More

We had a "hang tag" from the US Forest and Park service, so we didn't have to hassle with parking. The walk down to the base of the falls was easy - someone said 99-steps. There are several observation platforms on the path, so you...More

Park at the Glen Ellis Scenic Area car park (you'll need a pen & change to put in the parking envelope) and then a short walk (0.3 miles) on a fairly easy path leads to these beautiful falls.

This is one of my favorite New Hampshire spots, never experienced it in the fall with the leaves changed to fall colors so this was special.

Apologies, I’ve only just seen your question. Hopefully you’ve got the answers to help you find it. We had a sat Nav that helped us but we still sailed past the sign!
