The hike up to Arethusa Falls is an excellent mid-winter escape and also a topnotch visual treat. It’s located in scenic Crawford Notch State Park and the trailhead is right off of off Route 302, a ½ mile south of Dry River Campground. The hike is relatively short & doable in half a day. Arethusa Falls is just as impressive in the winter as it is in the summer. In the winter, you might catch a glimpse of some ice climbers tediously ascending its frozen slopes.
