I have hiked every trail at Grafton notch state Park and I will have to admit that my favorite trail is the eyebrow loop trail with a great view right through the park.

We stopped on a rainy afternoon and enjoyed hiking around the falls and picnic area. The magnitude of Mother Nature always thrills me.

We had an amazing time going to the various falls in the park. Beautiful and pristine and lots of fun for the teens. Most of the falls require a small hike but good for everyone ages 8-70.

Whether hiking, sight seeing, or just driving through you will enjoy this park. Our favorite was Auger Screw Falls. They are truly unique. The park is well worth a day of your visit to the Bethel area.
