Need to Know

I was told adults can swim here so bring your bathing suit! Although, the water might be too fast and deep for children. Also bring a camera; that cascading waterfall makes for beautiful pictures!

Runner Notes

In winter, this trail is used for snowmobiling.

Description

Lower Ammonoosuc Falls in Carroll NH is found along Rt. 302 just passed the entrance to Zealand camping and trails area. You can't miss the big parking lot on the right. That is the entrance and the trail ends by cherry valley road near Fabyan's Restaurant. This is a beautiful set of waterfalls for anyone looking for a dramatic cascading style waterfall that has moderate water flow.

Lower Ammonoosuc Falls is a fast moving cascading falls surrounded by rocks. The falls form into a large pool that is very deep with clear water. The estimated depth of the pool is 15' in normal weather.

Flora & Fauna

Lots of butterflies on the trail.

History & Background

The water that comes through these falls originated from lakes of the clouds (also a fantastic run). These falls have been used as the destination for small weddings and are often used for wedding photographs.
