Drove from Bethel to Grafton Notch. It is a beautiful State Park, & has many hiking trails. We took two easy trails. One was to a waterfall. Enjoyed half a day.

we visited the park whist touring New England to view the Fall colours. A pleasant drive through the park with some pleasant walks and falls. We particularly liked Screw Auger Falls.

Loved visiting this park. Wonderful trails for hiking. We will visit again. Easy access to trails. Parking lot at the main trail access area could be a bit larger. Probably should get there early during the summer.

We enjoyed an entire day in the park. The falls were especially fun. We climbed the rocks around the falls and took a lot of great pictures.

This park makes a beautiful drive with several water falls within a short walking distance. Good place to see a Moose!
