Waterfalls in New England

Gem Pool, Amanoonsuc Trail, White Mountains

While we still have at least 6-8 weeks of snow and winter weather conditions left in the high peaks of of New Hampshire and Vermont, Nature Girl and I saw buds on beech trees last weekend. Spring is definitely on the way.

One of the great spectacles of spring in this region are it's waterfalls and streams. Fed by snow-melt these turn into monstrous torrents in spring and make spectacular viewing. Here are some that I enjoyed seeing this past year.

Thoreau Falls is located just off the Appalachian Trail in New Hampshire (Upper and Lower).

Ripley Falls is located just off the Appalachian Trail near Crawford Notch in New Hampshire.

Diana's Baths (Upper and Lower) located at the base of North Moat Mountain in New Hampshire.

Little Wilson Falls in Maine is the highest waterfall on The Appalachian trail. It is in a deep slate canyon about 100 feet in high and 300 feet long and is located on the AT about 7 miles north of Rt 6/15 and Spectacle Pond.
