"A huge 300-foot cascade of water awaits you, but you have to earn it by climbing a very steep trail. The view from the cascades above the main falls is worth the extra effort. This is one of New Hampshire’s finest waterfall hikes, and above the cascades you will cross through one of New Hampshire’s few remaining old-growth forests."

the trail was both well kept and easy to follow. we saw some rare flowers on our treck including both royal and painted trillium, and both white and pink ladyslippers. the only thing i didnt like about the hike was that and a book that i have refer to three sets of cascades and i was only able to locate 1, but it was magnificent. i did scurry up the side of that and went on to the pond which was nice as well. a good hike, well worth the effort.
