Pond Brook Falls is a concealed chain of sparkling cascades and slides in New Hampshire’s Coos County. Before the Bolnicks’ Waterfalls of the White Mountains, Pond Brook Falls was absent from practically all other guidebooks of the area. The identity may now be revealed, but Pond Brook Falls remains just as private and untouched as it was before.
Just north of the popular day-hike summits of Percy Peaks, the individual cascades of Pond Brook Falls are not exceptionally spectacular or mystifying. The pleasing appeal is derived from the broad slabs of rock nature constructed for your picnicking and sunbathing pleasure. As an added bonus, there are a plentiful amount of cascades and other nooks-and-crannies to explore upstream. This is the waterfall for those of you wishing to avoid the crowds at the waterfalls located south in the White Mountains region.
Continue to the end of the parking lot where you will cross over a few boulders and enter the woods on a soft dirt path. After 0.1 mile, you will approach the lower cascades. The official path ends and you must continue climbing cautiously upstream among rocks and boulders to the right of the falls.
Directions for this particular waterfall are not posted online. Please see directions in our published guidebook, New England Waterfalls: A Guide to More Than 400 Cascades And Waterfalls, or you can email us and we will happily provide them to you.
