MORE WATERFALLS IN NEW HAMPSHIRE



The following is a list of additional waterfalls in New Hampshire that I haven't visited yet or I have made a visit but elected not to create a separate page for the falls for one reason or another (i.e. it was located on private property, it was unimpressive, it was a dam, etc.). If you are looking for the main list of waterfalls in New Hampshire that I have visited and documented, click here.

For lists of additional waterfalls that I still need to visit and document in the other New England states, click one or several of these links:

(photo to be added soon)
FAIR Stewartstown or Dixville Not Listed these falls on an unnamed stream are 8-10 feet tall and they can be visited by hiking a few miles south on the Cohos Trail from Coleman State Park; the falls were nothing remarkable, but this was a nice surprise to find on the last day of a 4-day backpacking trip I took with some friends in 2016
NH Alpine Cascades GREAT Gorham Not Listed this is a beautiful series of waterfalls on Cascade Alpine Brook near Jericho Mountain State Park; you can either hike or take an ORV/ATV vehicle to the base of the lower falls; some folks have been calling this "Cascade Falls" lately, but Alpine Cascades is its historical name; hiking to the base of the falls is believed to be a "10 to 15 minute walk" from a parking area on Devins Street; there are likely more falls upstream and reaching them would require a BUSHWHACK

NH Centennial Pool Falls unknown Carroll Not Listed this is a rumored waterfall on Crawford Brook; the falls are believed to be a short distance upstream (more likely) or downstream (less likely) of Beecher & Pearl Cascades; one website suggested that the falls can be seen from the Mt.

NH Chipmunk Falls GOOD Weare Not Listed this is supposedly a nice waterfall, but it seems like the landowners around the falls refuse to let the public visit them even though it it seems like a portion of the land around the falls may be on conservation land; skip this one for now, or email the town of Weare for the latest update on whether the public can access these falls

When guardrail stops & road levels into a left curve, a sandy 3-4 car turnout will appear quickly on your LEFT. Park there. Alternatively, if coming from Winchester, look for long straightaway w/maple lines running on each side & turnout will be JUST after on your RIGHT. The woods road ACROSS RT 10 (ribbon tape?) will lead downhill to a small brook, cross & go left up through rock splits & a small bog. Your ear should be plenty tuned to Pauchaug below…Trail crosses Falls #1 & heads north 2/10 mile to an “island” of hemlock w/gentle brook rolling down through boulder jumbles. There’s a cave. High tension wires overhead are hardly seen"

HOW CAN I FIND EVEN MORE WATERFALLS?

If you want to try to discover even more waterfalls, here are some research tips. I use these same tips to help find more waterfalls for this site:
  • Scan through in-circulation and out-of-print waterfall and hiking guidebooks; try to obtain copies of out-of-print books through used-book markets like half.com, or by searching through the Google Books website.
  • Review these two great websites: World Waterfall Database and Northeastern Waterfalls.
  • Scan paper and online maps for towns and cities that have a “Falls Road” or "Cascade Road".
  • Look at topo maps to see where rivers drop dramatically in elevation in a short distance. Then either review that area on Google Maps (using its terrain feature) or Google Earth, or go actually hike or bushwhack up and down those rivers.
  • Examine both current and historical trail maps (including those 100+ years old because many waterfalls become "lost" over time).
  • When visiting waterfalls and swimming holes, talk to the local residents and ask if they know of any others nearby.
  • Scan through Flickr groups that focus on waterfalls or photography of a specific region and/or state.
  • Search Google by town or region
    • i.e. Danvers, Massachusetts waterfall
    • i.e. waterfalls near Danvers, Massachusetts
    • i.e. waterfalls of the Berkshires
    • i.e. best waterfalls in Maine
    • i.e. swimming holes Rangeley Lake
    • i.e. top waterfalls in Rutland county
  • Search Google by nature park
    • i.e. waterfalls of Acadia National Park
    • i.e. Baxter State Park waterfalls
    • i.e. swimming holes White Mountain National Forest
    • i.e. waterfalls Green Mountain National Forest
  • Search Google by river, brook or stream
    • i.e. "Halfway Brook" waterfall
    • i.e. "New Haven River" cascade
    • i.e. "Nancy Brook" falls
  • Follow waterfall-related Facebook “pages” and “groups”.
  • Talk to local nature photographers and/or follow their photography or hiking blogs.
  • Find people on Facebook or hiking forums who purposely seek out off-the-beaten-path places and read about their adventures.
  • Visit an existing waterfall and hike or bushwhack both upstream and downstream of the main waterfall for more waterfalls.
  • Search for old waterfall postcards, especially at antique stores.
  • Look through Delorme's Atlas & Gazetteers, looking for marked waterfalls or symbols that represent waterfalls.
  • Periodically try to revisit waterfalls that are closed to the public. While odds are good that the falls will still be off-limits to the general public, there is always a chance that the land changed hands and is now open to visitors.

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!
