Arethusa Falls Trail

Hiking in Crawford Notch & Bretton Woods

The highest waterfall in New Hampshire is your goal on this 3-mile round-trip hike in Crawford Notch. The moderately difficult trail ends at the base of the falls, which rise about 200ft. They are most photogenic in spring as snowmelt boosts the water levels. The parking area is 6 miles south of the Crawford Notch Depot.

The falls are likely named for a Greek nymph who transformed into a fountain to escape a suitor.
