New Hampshire is the perfect home base for lovers of the great outdoors.

Whether you're passionate about hiking, camping, fishing, skiing, snowboarding, or even zip-lining, there are always ways to appreciate Mother Nature's beauty year-round in the Granite State.

We previously shared some of the best mountains and trails for newbie hikers in New Hampshire. But now, we're flipping that concept on its head thanks to Curated, which published a list of the hardest hikes in each state. These paths push hikers to their physical limits, and should only be tackled by the most experienced of professionals.

With over 4,000+ miles of hiking trails in the New Hampshire, there was no telling which direction Curated would go in their selection for the state's most challenging hike. But at the end of the day, the honor went to the Falling Waters Trail up to Little Haystack.

Here's some of what Curated had to say about this difficult hike:

The five miles and 3,000 feet of elevation make the Little Haystack via Falling Waters Trail near Lincoln, New Hampshire, difficult to say the least. The waterfalls at the end make the trip worth it. This is a popular trail for hiking and snow-shoeing, so if you are looking for a lightly-trafficked trail, this is not the one for you.

What do the waterfalls look like, you might ask? Take a look below.

So what do you think? Is the Falling Waters Trail truly the most challenging hike in New Hampshire, or should a different location take the title? Reach out and let us know.
