Giant’s Nubble Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This excellent trip combines a tall waterfall, scenic outlook, and picturesque pond within a very short distance. Don’t let the distance or description fool you though; the rugged trail provides you with plenty of climbing, along with the majestic scenery that is associated with the High Peaks region.

The trail is broad and flat, and you can just barely glimpse Roaring Brook through hardwoods off to the right. During the peak of summer, the brook runs dry and indicates that the falls ahead may not be as majestic as during rainy conditions or during the winter melt."
