Paugus Falls.
Paugus Falls, flowing over great, smooth ledges, but often dry in summer, may be reached by a trail – very indistinct in 1901 – which leaves the path right at the foot of the second steep ascent. From the falls a way out was “spotted” by Frank Bowles down the brook to the Bolles Trail about three miles from Nat. Berry’s on the Chocorua Mountain Road. The falls and trail are described in his book, “At the North of Bearcamp Water.”
