Rocky Gorge... This is a pothole in cross-section. It is scoured out by swirling sand and rocks over thousands of years. Later half the pothole was gradually worn away by rushing water, widening the gorge. The illustration in the left lower corner depicts how the pothole was made.

Silver Cascade Falls is located in Crawford Notch and often refered to as The Gate of the Notch. This waterfall is a risky climb. I made the climb so you dont have to. These pictures were taken so you can see what it looks like without risking anything. Enjoy...

Occassionally, throughout my hike, I reached places and crept out of the woods to peak at the falls. The climb was quite the experience between fear, exploration, and venture. I did loose my footing several times. Luckly I had positioned myself for such events.

This is the top of the Falls. Please take my advice and never make this climb. It is way too treacherous for anyone but those who think they are invincible. As a senior citizen, I tell you this in all ernest. But I did get my photographs......

A look down gives you a visual of the long way you would fall if you were to slip. And farther down, it gets even steeper.

The upper part of the falls is not visible from the road. But here is a picture of what it looks like as you approach the top.

Crawford Notch Depot... This is where the train running out of Conway turns around for the trip back down the mountain.

This is where the Conway Railroad leaves and takes you past sheer bluffs, steep ravines, cascading brooks and streams, panoramic mountain vistas, and across the famed Frankenstein Trestle and Willey Brook Bridge - enroute to Crawford Depot or Fabyan Station.

January 5 Hikers Dream by Tatkat
Been to the White mountains twice now,from Ohio. Absolutely love this area. Very clean and trails are marked and maintained very well. Thinking of finding a part time job for a Season there...
April 11 not a park! / looks like a park by Swiftc
The white mountain National Forest is not a national Park. It is a working forest administered by the Forest Service, a subgroup of the US dept of Agriculture. As such they manage the forest on the basis of multiple uses and a sustained yield of timber. Timber harvests are part of the management edict.
