Dropping more than 200 feet in a swath of lacy mist, the plunge of Bemis Rock creates New Hampshire's highest falls and a premier natural wonder. But seasoned hikers understand that there's more to Arethusa Falls than a first-class visual treat.
In the hot days of midsummer the sluicing cascades, broad rocks, and tiny pools that emerge from the base of the falls create a perfect spot for cooling your feet, splashing your children, or simply enjoying the pleasures of its backcountry sights and sounds.
