Beau hiking, beau point de vue.
Je l'ai fait avec mon chien et il y a plusieurs points
D'eau sur la route. Je suis redescendue par old speck trail. Ça donne une loop d'environ 2h/2h30 max. C'est aussi très peu achalandé. J'ai croisé 3

In 2002 we rose early and departed from Brunswick through Topsham and Auburn/Lewiston on 196, taking 121 through Mechanic Falls, and getting onto 26N, onto Norway and South Paris, north on 26 from Bethel, then into Grafton Notch State Park. Wes spotted a real live moose along the way (the only one we saw the whole trip). We first stopped at Screw Auger Falls, which was a nice cascade of waterfalls with a gorge at the bottom resembling an auger bit hole that had been crafted by rushing water over the years. We next entered the “notch”, which is a mountain pass or gap, and parked in the parking lot right in the crux and on the AT. We took the climb to the Eyebrow 2.1M RT on Eyebrow Trail Loop (Orange blazes off white-blazed AT), which would descend via the white blazed AT on our return. The hike was very steep and challenging, seemed much longer than 2.1 miles, had lots of rocks and tree roots, but was cool and quiet. My boys surprisingly did not complain too much. A low cloud cover hampered the views of the mountainside. We rested at the top, had a brief snack, and met a nice couple, who had hiked to the top of Old Speck and spent the night. Afterwards, my family made me vow not to do another exhausting hike like that again, even though we all felt like we had accomplished a major trek. Seems now there are ladders and ropes to help get up the hill - we had only used tree roots. Quite steep and challenging, but rewarding.

Eyebrow is an awesome challenge! Steep the whole way, using ladder rungs and cable to pull yourself up! Dogs can make it, but I wouldn't recommend taking a dog this way! Awesome view!
