“New” Waterfall

There are many streams and rivers in and around Wilton, New Hampshire.  Since Wilton is also on the edge of the bigger hills of southern NH, there are several waterfalls.

Just a few miles from my house there is a very pretty falls that everyone knows about and visits.  Actually, I haven’t been in a few years, but I used to go all of the time.  Here is an older photo of it taken in early winter (yes, that is snow).

A little farther out, and just over the border into Mt. Vernon and Milford, is Purgatory Brook with the three main Purgatory Falls, Upper, Middle and Lower, plus many pretty smaller falls.  Last year I did a post on this beautiful hike.  Here is a photo from Monday.

There are many other places close to my house for hiking.  On Sunday I took the dogs for a walk at the Heald Tract.  To get to the parking you have to go up King Brook Road, which follows (surprise) King Brook up a narrow valley.  At one point the stream disappears.  On my way home from walking the dogs I stopped and rolled down the window.  Sure enough, I heard a waterfall.

On Tuesday I took another walk at Heald Tract.  I decided to stop and check out the falls.  I didn’t have my camera, but I did have my phone.  Here are a few photos.

Wilton is a very pretty town.  There are many places to hike and, as I found out, several waterfalls.

    Those are gorgeous! I love living close to amazing nature. Going for a hike any season in places like this, boosts my energy levels, and well being every time. What kind of dogs do you have?

      I do need to be someplace where I can get out. Besides the house in NH I have a cottage on Cape Cod and, yes, I do take walks on the beach when it is -10 and 50 mph winds ;)
      I have a Boxer and rescue dog that is a mixed breed – a little pit, maybe some American Bulldog, possibly boxer and other breeds. Or as we like to say, 100% hellion.

        I KNOW what you mean! I need it to. I grew up in northern Sweden. Cold temperatures was never an issue. Boxers are such awesome dogs! I fostered one for about a year, four years ago. I used to have a wonderful pit bull/American Bulldog that shared my daughter’s birthday as well. They are awesome hiking partners 😊

          Northern Sweden – I’m sure you are comfortable in the cold! When I was a kid we had an exchange student from Härnösand. My parents visited a couple of times in later years.
