Stairs Falls, along the Falling Waters Trail in Franconia Notch, New Hampshire
Falling Waters Trail takes you up to the summit of Little Haystack Mountain, and Mount Lincoln and Mount Lafayette if you continue to the Franconia Ridge Trail / Appalachian Trail, then over to Old Bridle Path. Also along Falling Waters Trail are stunning waterfalls. The most popular one is Cloudland Waterfall at an 80 foot height, this waterfall is a fan-type horsetail. The beauty of this waterfall comes from its fan shape, measuring roughly 2 feet at the top, and 25 feet at the bottom. It can be seen right from the trail, but you can also step off the trail a bit to get a closer look. It takes 1.4 miles to reach the Cloudland Falls.
Stairs Falls is another waterfall along Falling Waters Trail. This waterfall is the first one seen on the trail, and typically the least crowded because you must step off the trail a bit to see it best. It takes roughly 0.8 miles to reach Stairs Falls.
