Ripley Falls

Crawford Notch

Location: Crawford Notch State ParkDistance: 1.2 milesElevation: 400+ feetTime: 1 hourDirections: Take Route 302 into Crawford Notch. About 3.4 miles south of height of land, you'll turn into the well marked parking area for Ripley Falls. Start on Ethan Pond Trail, then follow Arethusa-Ripley Falls Trail to this gorgeous 100 foot waterfallRipley Falls is a beautiful 100-foot weaterfall flowing over a smooth rock wall. The rock wall is at about a 60-degree angle, causing the rushing mountain water to maintain contact with the rock during most of its descent. There are only short, temporary periods where the water jumps away from the rock wall. Because of this, Ripley Falls, as an entire structure, is one of the steepest-angled slides in all of New England.
