Waterfall
“A must see if you are in the North Conway area and want to experience nature at its finest...and this gem is right in our backyard! During the summer the baths are a great place for children and grown-ups alike to enjoy the tranquility of nature, and explore the many rocks, ledges, cascading falls and pools in the brook. The hike to Diana’s Baths is a fairly easy 6/10ths of a mile on a relatively flat, wide gravel path. There are also several additional hiking trails to explore past Diana’s Baths.”

Theme Park Ride / Attraction
“We went on the cog for our first trip in the late fall of 2019. It was a great time! Our kids, who are train fanatics, loved it. The ground was clear and free of snow in Conway, and by the time we made the appx. hour trek to the Cog we were in about six inches of snow! They only take you about 1/2 up the mountain in the late season, but the views are still amazing. 15 minutes up gets you to their stopping point where you can hang out around a fire and have some hot cocoa and donuts before coming back down. Dress warm and wear boots! If you are visiting in late spring, summer and early fall they still make trips to the Mt. Washington summit. We suggest you call to confirm what kinds of trips they are making, and you can book tickets ahead of time too. ”
