Beautiful mountain views, would be stunning in fall color-we are just a little early. Screw Auger Falls is amazing -water flows through twisty scourged boulders. Moose Cave formed by huge rock that fell into the gorge. Number of hiking trails. Fun to explore.

Not only was it great driving through, but the hiking was great too. All the little stops we made to see different sites and hike. It was very easy with two young boys too. We will definetly return we loved it.

I've been to Grafton Notch many times. It's rugged and beautiful and usually quiet. I backpacked in July and was very surprised to see so many people on the trails. We had the campsite to ourselves the first night and shared a campsite on the...More

First, while this is advertised as a loop trail, we took the blue trail up and back as we had been told that the orange trail was a good deal steeper. For us, the blue trail was steep enough!! We do not do much hiking,...More
