This trail is .6 miles over to the Frankenstein Trestle. You cross under the tracks and then hike up the cliffs. The trail to the over cliffs is .7 miles and in some parts very steep. The cliffs you are hiking near are beautiful and very high. Once you hike up a ways you get to relax at the lower cliffs. There are some beautiful views of the Crawford Notch valley and mountains. The awesome part is that you can see the top of Arethusa Falls from the lower cliffs.
Then we headed up the trail to the Falcon Cliffs, but it was another .7 miles in and we decided to pass by the trail. If you do take that trail, it is said that you will have a great view of Mt. Washington. We headed to the top pf Frankenstein Cliffs where we were to see Mt. Washington and you can see it if you stand on a rock a little ways from the sign. I was a bit disappointed because the trees are grown so you can't see the view anymore. That trail was .8 miles and the elevation was 2531'.
Here are some pictures of the views and signs on the trail.
