Today Wilma and I Adventured to the seven waterfalls of Moultonborough, New Hampshire. We found them along the “Brook Walk” which starts to the right of the Cafe at Castle in the Clouds. In addition you can Park near the Fall of Song, when the access road is open. It was not open today so we actually walked all the way down it backwards before returning to Castle in the Clouds where we began on “Brook Way”. Not the “normal” way to do it but double the exercise. We visited Fall of Songs twice which is by far the best of the seven. These Falls are sourced from the Shannon Brook and range from 5-40 feet however the water was low due to recent drought like conditions.
“Brook Way” paralleled the brook so often you could hear the water singing. The trail was easy, and somewhat dull, however it was fun searching for the next falls, all labeled clearly. On the way back I was surprised to find the trail somewhat challenging, uphill with many rocks to climb. I am hoping this was because this was the last hike of our over four hours of hiking, versus that I am not the hiker I dreamed (haha!). Wilma loved hiking and waded in the water. As often is the case I found these falls were generally hard to photograph but I included a video or two of each. See these seven below, in no particular order.
