Glen Ellis Falls Information

Located in the Pinkham Notch area, Glen Ellis Falls is a 64 foot plunge waterfall. This is one of the more populated waterfalls because of its close proximity to other popular NH attractions and because it is only 0.1 miles from the Route 16. It has a couple plunges falling into a deep green water pool. No swimming is allowed. You can hike up the same trail Glen Ellis Falls is on to get to Wildcat Mountain A and Wildcat Mountain D.
