New Hampshire Waterfalls
The rivers and streams that crisscross New Hampshire frequently take a tumble thanks to our mountainous terrain. Some of the state's more than 100 waterfalls, like Silver Cascade and Flume Cascade on the north side of Route 302 in Crawford Notch, are visible from the road. Others, like Sabbaday Falls and Diana's Baths, are rewards at the end of a woodland hike. Flume Gorge
in New Hampshire's popular Franconia Notch State Park
has lured travelers since the early 1800s. A spectacular 45-foot waterfall awaits families who venture along wooden walkways through this river-carved chasm.
Waterfall seekers should wear sturdy footwear—no leather soles or flip-flops. And be cautious when walking on wet rocks or across streams. You'll see waterfalls at their most vigorous in the spring, when New Hampshire's abundant snow cover melts and saturates rivers and streams.
