Cascade Brook Waterfalls, Franconia Notch – Waterfall enthusiasts will love exploring Cascade Brook in Lincoln, New Hampshire. The Basin-Cascades Trail travels in the area of Cascade Brook. And for the most part, all of the cascades in this blog article are on the side of the trail. But they are not roadside, and one must hike up the Basin-Cascades Trail to reach them.
In the 1870s book, I Go A-fishing by William Cowper Prime, he describes Cascade Brook as being one of the finest brooks in America for scenery and small trout. In 1876, Mr. Prime and W.F. Bridge bought Moran Lake and the land around it. They renamed the lake “Lonesome Lake” and had a private cabin on it. And they spent time fishing on the brooks in the area. It is worth mentioning that in the early days Lonesome Lake was known as Tamarack Pond and Moran Lake.
