THE FALLS:

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.

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 last 50 years. Never swim when the water currents seem like they are too high or strong. Use of this website and all of its information is at your own risk! Be safe out there - and always use common sense!
