Waterfalls of Dolly Copp Road

P1030790

It’s a Tuesday, it’s July and the trails are packed in the White Mountains.  So what to do? Go to some waterfalls that aren’t popular.  We decided to hit the waterfalls off of Dolly Copp Road in Randolph.  Our first stop was Triple Falls.

We never saw a sign for Erebus Falls, so I am assuming this is it:

After a bit, we reached the car and drove over to a parking lot that served the Howker Ridge Trail and the Randolph Path.

However the stairs looked dry, but to the left of them there was a nice cascade. Our our way out, there was a professional photographer down in there snapping pictures.

Next stop was the Devil’s Kitchen, but we couldn’t get down there to see it.

Next up was Coosauk Falls at .7 miles.  Mike attempted to get down to it, but the footing wasn’t secure and even though we have our hikesafe cards, he didn’t want to chance it.

Until the Hitchcock Falls at .3 miles past the Coosauk Falls.   So happy I brought my water shoes.  Both of us scrambled around this part and had a blast.

After the Hitchcock Falls we turned around and returned to our car.  We really enjoyed our late morning jaunt visiting these falls on the Dolly Copp Way.
