Screw Auger Falls is a wonderful low key free attraction in Grafton Notch. There are numerous small pools, ideal for wading above the falls. The falls themselves are just a few minutes walk from the parking area along a gravel trail. The river gorge cutting through the rock is impressive although not large or high. It's a nice summer outing... More

It is quite a long hike but we enjoyed it. The waterfalls are beautiful! Take plenty of water and good hiking boots. We also took a lunch and ate on the rocks in front of the waterfall.

Easy In and out, beautiful area. A very short walk to the falls. Great place to bring a lunch. You can easily spend 10 minutes there or a half of a day.

Beautiful site. Unfortunately the low water levels prevented us from seeing the full beauty of the falls themselves. Beware slippery rocks if trying to cross to the opposite bank.

Maine has bigger and better waterfalls but this one is easy for all ages to enjoy. Take a picnic or just enjoy a rushing Maine river. It's worth a stop if you are in the area.

Very close to parking area and blueberries there for the picking in July. Nice area for the kids to get wet.

We visited Screw Auger Falls with 18 family members as part of a family vacation. This place rocks! Not only is it gorgeous, the approach is through a fairly flat and wooded trail (sheltered from the sun). About 20 mins later, voila you are at the Falls. At the time, the youngest members were 5 years old and they had... More
