The Liberty Gorge Cascade is a striking waterfall nestled within the Flume Gorge Natural Area in Lincoln, New Hampshire. This natural wonder stands tall with a total height of 70 feet and is gracefully framed by the captivating surroundings of Cascade Brook. The beauty of the Liberty Gorge Cascade is at its peak during the spring when the snow begins to melt and after heavy rainstorms, causing the brook to flow most vigorously. While spring is the ideal time to explore the waterfall at its peak flow, Liberty Gorge Cascade remains a captivating destination throughout the year, each season offering its unique enchantment.

The waterfall presents a unique and captivating formation, featuring cascades and a striking horsetail descent. While the waterfall is a mesmerizing sight to behold, it’s important to note that swimming is not permitted at this location, and there is no pool or area designated for swimming.
