Pitcher Falls


Pitcher Falls in Albany, New Hampshire is one of the most picturesque waterfalls in NH. The waterfall has a total height of 35 feet and it can be found along Champney Brook. Champney Brook flows strongest during spring when the snow melts and after heavy rainstorms. Although it is best to explore the waterfall in the spring to witness the most watershed, Pitcher Falls is a great spot to visit year-round. The waterfall itself drops in a unique formation consisting of one single plunge. Photographers love capturing the beauty of the waterfall and oftentimes bring tripods to take long-exposure photos of the water plunging down the high cliff.

Accessing the waterfall is relatively simple, but does require a bit of a hike. Pitcher Falls is located 100 feet off the Champney Falls Trail and across Champney Brook. Pitcher Falls is located within a deep and narrow channel. Don’t forget to check out Champney Falls too! In total, the waterfall trail is 3.1 miles out-and-back.
