Grafton Notch State Park is located on Route 26 between Newry and Upton, Maine, and offers opportunities for sightseeing, picnicking, and hiking on its 3,000 acres of beautiful natural terrain. Several interesting attractions are conveniently located on scenic Route 26. Interpretive signs explain the glacial sculpting of Screw Auger Falls and the formation of Mother Walker Falls. A quarter-mile loop trail leads to Moose Cave with its narrow gorge and lush lichens and mosses. At Spruce Meadow and Screw Auger Falls visitors will find picnic tables and grills. Both short and long day hikes extend through this spectacular, scenic area at the end of the Mahoosuc Range. The 2,000-mile Appalachian Trail passes through the park on the way to the trail's northern terminus, Mt. Katahdin. Facilities include picnic tables and grills. In the winter, a main artery snowmobile trail (ITS 82) traverses the park and is maintained by a local snowmobile club.

Orange markings lead to a strenuous slow moving trail. Incredible views at the top.

This is a great trail, well travelled and maintained with a good amount of challenging sections and a great view from the summit.

My wife and i took the Orange trail on the way up. We had a great time. This was our first hard trail and it was fun. On the way down we took the blue/white trail and enjoyed a more leisure hike back to the parking lot. Definitely recommend this trail.

This is an easy access watering hole, it features a few shallow pools to cool off, great for kids. it also features one of Maines waterfalls, it drops about 25 to 30 feet down into a gorge. i believe that if you walk down and travel through the gorge you can reach the bottom of the waterfall.

Great views, fun area to explore. Some caves along the face of the cliffs to explore through. Continue up the AT to West Peak and a lean-to for camping.

Great Hike with various environments including water falls, rock falls, and trees. Enjoyed the lookout tower but held onto ladder with white knuckles while going up and down.

Great views of the notch
