Hiking the Falling Water Trail in White Mountains, Lincoln, New Hampshire

Panoramic view from the top of Little Haystack Mountain
in White Mountains, New Hampshire
The Falling Water trail in White Mountains is located near Franconia Notch State Park off I-93. The trail is about 6 miles, round trip. It passes through three waterfalls - Stair Falls, Swiftwater Falls and Cloudland Falls - and goes all the way to the top of the Little Haystack mountain. After one crosses the Cloudland Falls, the trek becomes very difficult for those without prior trekking experience. The trail, there on, becomes very rocky. However, once we get to the top, the panoramic view of the surrounding mountains is breathtaking.
