A pleasant trek to the highest waterfall in New Hampshire, past a lookout to Mount Washington, and then across the top of a 600-foot cliff. Frankenstein Cliff towers 600 feet above the parking lot. But the cliffs are only half the show. Arethusa Falls is the highest waterfall in New Hampshire and a destination in its own right. This is an excellent multi-faceted hike for families, not only to two iconic landmarks, but also with a nice view of Mount Washington and the chance to pass under the sky-high trestle built by the Maine Central Railroad, which is still used today as a sightseeing train called the Conway Scenic Railroad.
