Gorgeous state park

Visited Screw Auger Falls and Moose cave. Beautiful area. Wish I'd had more time so I could do a bit of hiking.

Beautiful park, extremely clean. We were in the area only for a day trip, but it was well worth it. Lots of trails. Water was clean enough to swim (but *cold* - duh).

great trails, short and long, beautiful waterfalls and trails are very well marked. The table top trail was a bit hard, we called it a bit like rock climbing, so be prepared.

Park fee is on honor system.....put it in a drop box, don't get a sticker or anything for paying, but well worth the couple $$ fee! Screw auger falls is spectacular. Mother Walker falls, ho-hum after seeing Screw auger falls! Lots of hiking trails from easy to more difficult.

We hiked a couple of the Falls here. The trails are well maintained and well marked, and well worth spending the time. Awesome views and plenty of gorgeous pictures!

Take a picnic lunch and spend the day here, it just lovely. Good hiking area and really beautiful. Hike along the waterfall and take a dip in the really refreshing (AKA cold!) water. A great way to spend a day in Maine.

Definitely would also check out the Step Falls, that are just south of the park entrance with great swimming holes for the kids.
