"Beautiful Glen Ellis Falls is one of the most popular waterfalls near Pinkham Notch, and rightfully so. It drops 64 feet and runs even through the drier months."

"On the hike to Glen Ellis Falls, you will see water at its most peaceful and its most powerful. Follow the hurrying Ellis River to the shores of tranquil Lost Pond. From here, negotiate a boulder maze to rejoin the river and arrive at the waterfall just over a mile from the start. While you’ll find solitude along the trail, expect crowds at the impressive falls. This is a terrific hike for the entire family—it’s within the capabilities of most preschoolers, yet varied enough to entertain a twelve-year-old. (One rather tricky river crossing makes this a poor choice for springtime or after a heavy rain.)"
