Directions to Glen Ellis Falls: Take Rt. 16 to Pinkham Notch in the White Mountain National Forest. 1/2 mile South of the Pinkham Notch Visitor Center is the parking area on the West side of the road. The trail and parking area and very clearly marked as show below. Walk through the tunnel under the road, down the rocks steps to the base of Glen Ellis Falls.
 
Information About Glen Ellis Falls: Glen Ellis Falls is by far one of the best waterfalls in New Hampshire. It is easy to get to, has a well maintained trail, signs that give you some of the history of Glen Ellis waterfall and Ellis River, and above all an experience that you won't forget. Glen Ellis has great water flow all year long and the pounding water that you can not only hear, but also feel under your feet, will remind you of the shear power of the water at Glen Ellis Falls.

From the very beginning of your short journey to Glen Ellis Falls, you will be surprised, first by the fact the trail starts under the highway and all the work that has gone into making the trail to Glen Ellis Falls Accessible by almost everyone. Even the handrails made out of logs, the steps made from granite and the viewing areas, one at the top, another half way down the falls and the last one at the base of Glen Ellis Falls. You will immediately be surprised by the green water in the pool in the Ellis River just before Glen Ellis Falls. The green water is due to high amounts of nutrients but provides a spectacular color, adding to the excitement of Glen Ellis Falls. Further down stream as the trail continues, you will notice the river suddenly disappears, a little unexpectedly, you arrive at the top of the falls. If you dare, be sure to observe the falls from the top observation area where it gives you a straight down view of Glen Ellis Falls. As you descend down the steps, you will find yourself at the base of Glen Ellis Falls where there you will find the best places for photos. Only drawback is your camera lens and camera will get wet. The spray from the falls are incredible.

Keep in mind that this waterfall is almost always a busy place. We went there on a weekday, just after the Fall Foliage leaf peepers were gone, and also just before sunset and we were alone to enjoy this unique waterfall. A very rare chance. The park closes at 10:00pm for those who want to enjoy the waterfall on a romantic moonlit night.

Weddings at Glen Ellis Falls:
If you are interested in having a wedding at Glen Ellis Falls, expect that you wont be alone. You will want to contact the town of Jackson for information about having a wedding at the Falls. Glen Ellis Falls are easily accessed, there is some room at the base, not a lot but maybe enough for a small wedding.

Glen Ellis Fall Sign on Rt. 16


Trail to Glen Ellis Falls


Sign For "Geology of Glen Ellis Falls"
(Sign reads: Thirty thousand ears ago the ice age greatly changed the appearance of this area. The grinding action of ice steepened the valley walls and carved bowl-like cirques into the terrain.
The falls is believed to have been created following a series of avalanches from overhanging cliffs on the East side of the valley. The Ellis River which flowed uninterrupted during pre-glacial times was forced by the violence and struggles of the land masses to plunge over the headwall of a glacial cirque.")

Sign For the Glen Ellis River
(Sign reads: "It's waters begin their downward flow from the Eastern slopes of Mount Washington (elevation 6,288 ft).
Near Glen New Hampshire, it joins the Saco River which meanders through Maine to the Atlantic Ocean.")


Green Water in the Ellis River in a Pool Near Glen Ellis Falls


Glen Ellis Falls


Sign at the Base of Glen Ellis Falls
(Sign reads:
"Glen Ellis Falls
Height 64 FT.
Here the forces of nature provide their own spectacular show. The fall of water attests to the tremendous powers of moving water. From the snow-covered or rain-drenched peaks this river is born to feed others.
In the few seconds this message held your interest, a minimum of 600 gallons of water have passed this point. At this rate, the daily needs to a city of 25,000 people would be satisfied.
Water, indispensible to the needs of man, is one of the resources of the White Mountain National Forest.")
 
Video of Glen Ellis Falls

Don't let this video of Glen Ellis Falls fool you...  The water falling 64' straight down is powerful, making the ground vibrate and leaving spray on your camera lens.
