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.

Very nice park with easy trails for young children... Pretty water falls to view as well. Be mindful of your young ones as there are a few places were a fall would be disastrous.

We drive from NH through this area and was amazed at the scenery! Coming from the South it reminded us of the Blue Ridge Parkway route. The overlooks were great & we even saw a moose! We will come back in this area with our kids!

We saw the park in the winter under about 5 inches of snow and it was beautiful. The half frozen waterfalls were wonderful to see! We can't wait to go back in the summer!
