Cascade Brook Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Cascade Brook Trail is spectacularly scenic, crossing over the brook, looking east toward the White Mountains, and ﬁnally arriving at the placid Lonesome Lake."
--Lafe Low, Best Hikes of the Appalachian Trail - New England (Menasha Ridge Press).
"This hike in Franconia Notch is a great family hike, as it follows Cascade Brook for nearly 1.0 mile, visiting two waterfalls and numerous cascades along the way. Excellent views can also be seen from spots where the brook cuts a wide swath through the forest. The elevation gain is easy to tackle for enthusiastic kids who love exploring the mountains, although the footing can be rough at times due to exposed tree roots. The falls are most spectacular in the spring, but, in very high water, the crossing of the brook at Kinsman Falls can be too much for smaller children. Since both Lonesome Lake and Kinsman Pond feed Cascade Brook, it has plenty of water throughout most of the year."
