from the Bartlett Inn.  We enjoyed a 2.5 hour hike to the falls with the kids, dog and adults too!  Hiking to WaterFalls is a fun thing to do with Children in the White Mountains. The rain from the night before and the sprinkle of the morning added to the flow of the falls!  We often tell guests who feel put off by the weather that there is a bright side to a rainy day:  It makes the Waterfalls flow very big!  So if you have the right equipment…waterproof hiking boots and jacket and non cotton pants and it is not too cold out you will not melt in the rain and will get to see the New Hampshire Waterfalls at their best!  We recommend the Bemis Brook Trail for the first part of the hike so you can enjoy the granite slabs with steps and cascading waterfalls along the way.  The climb back to the Arethusa Trail is steep and slippery so be sure to hold onto firm roots and and rocks.  It is only about 200 meters and then you rejoin the main trail.  Kids love the boardwalks and the cool breeze and mist coming off the falls too!  We ate lunch at the bottom of the falls and the sun came out to warm us!  We took the Arethusa trail back and it returned much quicker then on the climb up.  We saw a huge toad, a little peeper frog, garter snake, chipmunks and squirrels too. Stay at the kid friendly Bartlett Inn near StoryLand NH and enjoy natures own amusement park.  we will give you ideas for Family Friendly Hikes in New Hampshire and other fun things to do with kids near North Conway!  1 800 292 2353
