THE FALLS:

Winniweta Falls is a seldom-visited little waterfall located off NH 16, just south of the Mt. Washington Auto Road and Pinkham Notch. At this site, there are major cascades, notable plunges, and many slides over rock. Views are usually at least partially limited by plant growth, but it is possible to explore some areas of the falls. Be on the lookout for moose hereŚwe have heard some accounts of sightings, and seen plenty of fresh tracks ourselves. The deep pool below the falls is very inviting and there is definitely a potential to sit in the waterfall with the water crashing over and around you on a hot day.
