Dixville

Another unincorporated township in NH is Dixville. I went there several times while I was in the area and came away with several different views of the notch…

On my first trip through the notch, we had a light snow and some heavy fog…

Dixville-9685

The next time I traveled through the notch, it had warmed up considerably…

Dixville-9807

There are at least 4 waterfalls in Dixville. You have the Baby Flume, fed by Flume Brook…

Dixville-9937

And across the road, you have Dixville Notch State Park. There are two falls in the park fed by Cascade Brook . The lower falls are an easy walk from just behind the picnic area…

Dixville-9958

Dixville-9948

Dixville-9970

Then you can hike up a fairly steep trail to get to the upper falls…

Dixville-9968

I didn’t get any real good pictures of the upper falls. There is also quite a bit of history at Dixville Notch State Park…

Dixville-9982

Dixville-9983

Rt. 26 which runs through the notch offers some stunning views…

Dixville-9843

Dixville-9840

Dixville-9818

And there are several trails directly off of Rt. 26 which also have wonderful views

Dixville-9794

Dixville-9849

On the shore of Lake Gloriette, you will find The Balsams Grand Resort Hotel. It is currently closed for renovations…

Dixville-0522

This is home to the last of the waterfalls that I found. The one is fed by Moose Brook…

Dixville-9830

It is also home to Cold Springs, where I filled all of my water bottles for the day…

Dixville-9836

There isn’t a bad time to visit Dixville, but I love early summer when the trees are in bloom…

Dixville-9805

There are plenty of places to hike and enjoy what Mother Nature has provided. There is also a wildlife viewing station just before you get to the state park. Mid-week is an ideal time to go to Dixville. On 2 different occasions, I was the only person there, that may also have to do with the season. I’m sure later in the summer and in the fall there are a lot more visitors.

      Thank you Sandy. I’ve been having a great time! I’ve discovered so much about NH since I started this and have met some great people (yourself included!)

    I’m sure once school lets out it will get busy fast. I’ve been through the flume, It was cold in June on there the day i went through. Those are excellent shots of the falls!

      Thank you! I really enjoy being able to visit places in the “off season” it makes photographing them much easier. All of the rain we’ve had really got the falls roaring.

I'd love to know what you think!
