Whether hiking, skiing, or kayaking, authors Greg Parsons and Kate Watson have long appreciated water in all its various forms. But the form that has continuously fascinated them is the rarest and most beautiful one water can take: the waterfall. Full of allure and majesty, waterfalls are dramatic demonstrations of how the landscape changes over time.
This greatly expanded edition of New England Waterfalls lists more than 400 waterfalls and describes more than 200 in depth; you'll also find extensive trail and road updates and lots of valuable information to help you make the most of your time. Chapters are organized by state, and each chapter includes a map to help you locate all the waterfalls easily. Waterfalls throughout the New England states are described according to type, height, trail length and difficulty, water source, and the ideal season to visit. They are also rated for their photogenic and scenic qualities to help you decide whether to spend a day reaching a single magnificent site or spend a day touring several falls in close proximity to each other. Every waterfall is a new and special place, as you will soon discover with this book in hand.
With appendixes of the best swimming holes, multi-waterfall day trips, and long-distance waterfall hikes, New England Waterfalls delivers a wealth of information for seekers of these regional treasures.
Outdoor enthusiasts Greg Parsons and Kate Watson visited more than 500 waterfalls while researching this guide in order to share these wondrous places with others. Together they maintain the website www.newenglandwaterfalls.com. Greg lives north of Boston, MA, and Kate lives in the White Mountains of NH.
