Arethusa Falls is one of the largest single-drop waterfalls in New England, reaching as high as 200 ft and considered by many as one of the most magnificent waterfalls in New Hampshire. We'll be hiking up to Arethusa Falls via the Bemis Brook Trail, where we will also see Fawn Pool, Coliseum Falls, and Bemis Brook Falls. The trail then reconnects to the Arethusa Falls Trail leading towards Arethusa Falls. Following the hike to Arethusa Falls, we'll hike to Mt. Willard, considered a 52 with a view, offering incredible views of Crawford Notch below. This hike is leaving later than usual to time the sunset perfectly on Mount Willard.

There will be a gear check for this hike at the pick up location and at the trailhead if you're a non-carpooler. If you don't have the gear, you will not be allowed to join the hike. No exceptions!
