Champney Falls ( named after Benjamin Champney- a noted White Mtn. artist (1817-1907) is a series of cascades about 70 feet long. During periods of high water the falls are quite spectacular. During dry spells the falls can become much less impressive. Walking time to the falls and back to the parking lot is about 21/2 hours. The Champney Falls loop is 1.4 miles, while the Piper Trail is located 3.2 miles away. Both the Champney Falls trail and the Piper trail take you to the summit of Mount Chocorua. The Piper trail leads back to Route 16 on the south eastern side of Mount Chocorua.
