Beaver Brook Cascades


Beaver Brook Cascades is an amazing 5-star rated waterfall located in Woodstock, New Hampshire. The waterfall has a total height of over 600 feet and it can be found along Beaver Brook. Beaver Brook flows strongest during spring when the snow melts and after heavy rainstorms. Considering the water flow is often greatest in the spring, the months of March, April, and May are the recommended months for visitors. That said, Beaver Brook Cascades is a great spot to visit year-round. The waterfall itself drops in a unique formation consisting of plunges, horsetails, cascades, and slides.

Accessing the waterfall is rather easy. The waterfall is located in the White Mountain National Forest right along the iconic Appalachian National Scenic Trail. Visitors can park at the Beaver Brook Trailhead parking lot conveniently located off Lost River Road. After parking, the hike to the falls is 0.5 miles one-way.
