At 200 feet high, Arethusa Falls is the tallest waterfall in New Hampshire, and in spring there is an impressive wall of water making the plunge down a wall of reddish-brown rock on Bemis Brook. The hike to the falls is relatively easy and suitable for most kids with some hiking experience who can go uphill at a moderate pace for more than a mile. If you feel like doubling your effort, you can make this a loop hike by adding Frankenstein Cliff to your itinerary. The views from the cliff are excellent, but it is a down-sloping ledge with a very steep drop-off, so it is not appropriate for smaller children.
