The most popular waterfall of the Pinkham Notch area is the 64-foot plunge known as Glen Ellis Falls. With a fine spray of water throughout the warmer months, this waterfall attracts thousands of vacationers from all over.
Being situated minutes from other long-time favorite attractions of the area, along with its ease of access, makes this waterfall another White Mountain National Forest attraction that can be crowded even in the lousiest weather conditions. However, as unattractive as a crowded waterfall can often, it is crowded for a reason.
This waterfall is quite distinctive, with its exceptionally deep green pool and how the left-angle at which the water plunges. It is too bad that the waterfall is off-limits to swimming, as this would be one of the more enjoyable swimming holes in the state.
Just about anyone that can walk down stairs can visit this waterfall. The trail is short and well worth it. Just do not expect to be alone at this waterfall.
