Lost Waterfalls of New England
Here are some of the best waterfalls in the White Mountains region of New Hampshire and Maine that have either been "lost" over the years, or have never really been popular due to the level of difficulty required to reach them. Most of these waterfalls require difficult bushwhacks and should only be attempted by those confident in their abilities to travel off-trail and are able to rely on map & compass if such a situation arose. There are likely dozens more worthwhile waterfalls hidden in the White Mountains that are not yet listed here. New waterfalls will continue to be added to this list as more are discovered.
The ultimate map to use to find these waterfalls (along with all the other waterfalls of the White Mountains) is the Exploring New Hampshire's White Mountains map, which was published in 2009 by The Wilderness Map Company. It can be somewhat tough to find online (Amazon.com doesn't even have it), but most of the tourist towns in the White Mountains (i.e. Lincoln and Conway) have this map for sale. Another great map is the White Mountains Waterproof Trail Map. The AMC White Mountain Guide maps are also excellent.

|Waterfalls, swimming holes, and hiking can be extremely dangerous. Hundreds of people have been injured or killed in the waterfalls and swimming holes of New England over the years. Never swim in strong water currents. Don't jump into a swimming hole without scouting it first. Do not climb up or along the side of waterfalls. Be weary of slippery rocks. Never swim in pools above waterfalls. Use of this website and all of its information is at your own risk!
