The 8 Best Waterfalls in NH to See in 2023

New Hampshire is pretty well known for its waterfalls and covered bridges – and some of the best waterfalls in NH can be found right here in the White Mountains. The best time to see them is as the snowpack begins to melt this spring. The waterfalls in NH are beautiful in summer too, but certainly more impressive in spring and later fall.

One of the best things about these waterfalls in NH is just how easy they are to access. Some are located just off major roads, and others require a short walk or hike to get to. Many of them are even found within easy reach of our New Hampshire Bed and Breakfast, as they are located in the magnificent Franconia Notch State Park, home to many great hikes, bike trails, waterfalls, and more. Below, we’ve listed eight of our favorite nearby waterfalls in NH, but these are just the beginning of your adventure in the White Mountains!

  1. Waterfall lovers won’t want to miss a trip to Franconia Notch State Park, where you’ll find some of the best (and closest!) waterfalls in NH. The Falling Waters Trail is a popular hike in the White Mountains, but it also features a number of fantastic waterfalls, including Cloudland Falls, which drops 80 feet in a horsetail fan. Another great trail here takes you through the Flume Gorge to Avalanche Falls.
  2. One of the biggest and most impressive waterfalls in NH is Arethusa Falls, which cascades down a 200-foot tall wall. It’s the tallest waterfall in New Hampshire and is reached by a 1.5-mile hike.
  3. Glen Ellis Falls is another “must-do” when it comes to gorgeous waterfalls in NH. The water cascades into the gorge at a unique angle before dropping 64 feet into a stunning deep green pool below.
  4. If you want to snap a few gorgeous photos, don’t miss Bridal Veil Falls. Aside from Arethusa Falls, it’s one of the most photographed waterfalls in NH as it plunges 35 feet into a small pool below.
  5. Maximize your time and see several gorgeous waterfalls in NH all on one hike on the trail to Upper Ammonoosuc Falls. Not only is it beautiful, but several others are in the area.
  6. The Nancy Cascades are beautiful and a perfect option if you want to avoid crowds. To reach the lower falls, you’ll need to hike 2.5 miles. Take a break when you reach the lower falls, but keep going a little further, and you’ll be rewarded with the upper falls, too.
  7. Franconia Falls is easy to get to, located at the end of one of the flattest long-distance trails in the White Mountains. There are no big drops here but plenty of rock slabs and pools that paint a beautiful setting.
  8. Finally, make sure to visit Sabbaday Falls, which can be found just off the famed Kancamangus Highway. This is one of the most accessible waterfalls in NH, as the trail leading to this 45-foot waterfall is accessible.
