Waterfalls in New England

Gem Pool, Ammonoonsuc Trail, White Mountains

One of the great spectacles of spring in New England are the waterfalls and streams that dot the countryside. Fed by snow-melt these turn into monstrous torrents in spring and make spectacular viewing. Here are a few of my favorites.

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.

Thundering Brook Falls on the Appalachian Trail just south of the Ottauquechee River in Vermont.

Falls on the Peabody Brook Trail just above Giants Falls 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.

  1. Stop by Devil’s Hopyard State Park in East Haddam, Conn., and see Chapman Falls, preferably in the spring. The park has some undulating hill hikes and a decent vista view as well. Nothing that even remotely compares to the Whites, but a nice quiet spot.
