|COST TO VISIT:
Beecher and Pearl Cascades are two falls located on Crawford Brook, a mountain steam that drains the waters of Mount Field. The first fall, Beecher Cascade, a 35-foot horsetail hidden under heavy tree cover, is encompassed by gorge walls of pink-brown colored Conway granite. Opportunities for exploring and photography are extremely limited at Beecher Cascade as the water has carved itself a path into the rock face over the years. Make sure to hike a few hundred feet further up the trail to Pearl Cascade, a 20-foot tall fan. Below the fan, water enters a gorge and becomes trapped in a jagged-edged pothole, creating one of the most delightful small swimming pools in the White Mountains. About four to five feet in depth, this colorful pool?with hues of brown, pink, yellow, green, and black to be found?is the perfect cool refreshing treat for a two or three people.
