About This Location

Huntington Cascades, also known as Huntington Falls, is a beautiful waterfall located in Dixville, New Hampshire. The waterfall drops in two different sections. First is the popular lower falls which drop 30 feet in a horsetail formation into a small pool. The pool can be fun to wade around in on hot summer days. The second section is the upper falls. These are just a short distance up the gorge and they drop about 65 feet. Although the upper falls are taller, they are much harder to photograph. That said, they are well worth checking out.

Huntington Cascades is conveniently located right along Cascade Brook. Cascade Brook is a pretty seasonal waterfall. It is best to visit the waterfall during the springtime when the brook is roaring thanks to the snow melting. Many photographers flock to the falls during the months of March, April, and May. That said, Huntington Cascades are great to visit year-round considering how easy they are to access.

When it comes to reaching the falls, expect a quick and leisurely hike. Accessing the waterfall is relatively easy. The waterfall is located in Dixville Notch State Park which features a well-marked and extensive trail system. Visitors can park just off NH-26 at the Cascade Brook Picnic Area and then hike 0.20 miles to the falls. Continue hiking on for a few more minutes to reach the upper section of the falls. Ultimately, the hike out and back along Three Brothers Trail #59 is a half-mile and features 100 feet of elevation gain.

The waterfall trail is family-friendly and a great way to get some hiking in. Dogs are also allowed on the trail and at the waterfall. During the summer months, many dogs like beating the heat with a dip in the pool at the base of the lower falls.

Dixville Notch State Park is home to some truly amazing spots!
