Diana's Baths, North Conway

4.7
#1 of 7 in Parks in North Conway
In White Mountain National Forest, look for Diana's Baths, a 23 m (75 ft) long cascade of pools and waterfalls. Historically used to power mills and a dam with turbines, the falls became attractive to tourists. Today the area is a destination suitable for families, where you can explore the rocks, ledges, cascading falls, and pools. Water levels vary according to season and rainfall; you can wade through areas when water levels are low. Pets are welcome. To get there, you'll need to take a short 1 km (0.6 mi) trail to the base of the falls along a fairly flat gravel path.

  • Easy hike in to the falls. Great for all the family. Lots of little pools "baths" to hang out in. Very peaceful later in the day. If you like water, waterfalls and getting up close and personal with n...  more »
  • We went on this hike on the spring and the winterand it is beautiful both times of the year. Late spring it is more accessible, but winter there are not nearly as many people.  more »
  • Nice novice level hike alongside the falls. Beautiful scenery, not overly long or overly challenging. Have been there many times. Sure to return many more times.  more »

  • Great photo opportunities. Hot days fun wading in the pools or being showered by the mini falls. Picnic lunch on a granite stone. Pick up after yourself though. Stress free vacationing. Get away from it all. People watching on a holiday. Feeling like a kid again when you’re not.
  • My favorite short hike in the area. Plan on about an hour and a half. There are a couple areas of falls and pools of water. Well marked and clear trail. There are some great places and big rocks with the falls in the background for pictures. There are bathroom's in the parking lot at the bottom before you start. If you want to do more hiking that day cathedral ledge down the road from Diane's baths is a must. I even got married on cathedral's ledge. One of the best spots with a view of all the mountains, Mount Washington and the valley. In the fall the scenery is some of the best in New Hampshire from that spot. In between Dianas baths and cathedral ledge is a great pick your own strawberries farm with a year round stand of homemade jams.
  • Most likely in the summer it gets crowded. We went on the off season in March, some iciness in the trail but not bad, beautiful hemlock woods and little streams, tons of squirrels running around, and the cascade at the end is quite pretty. Good hike for kids, just beware of the potentially dangerous water around the falls at least for little ones and off season.
  • So beautiful. I have been there in the fall & winter and both were great experiences!
  • Such an interesting and fun place to spend the day (or a few hours). The hike to get the to falls is around a mile (I think - my judge of distance is poor at best). The hike brings you through older tree growth which is pretty fantastic. The path is wide and well worn. You can tell this is a place that many tourists and locals frequent. You can follow the path alongside the falls or you can climb/walk across the rocks (given that there hasn't been too much rain causing the falls to be unsafe to traverse). My 4 year old had so much fun climbing over the rocks and tree roots. Diana's Baths is an excellent representation of New Hampshire attractions.
