Whenever we travel that way, we always stop in at the Screw Auger Falls rest area. Just a few steps down a small path, and you are rewarded with some impressively carved sluice-ways.

This little picnic spot has a great pool for kids to wade with a series of small pools and falls in the stream. We almost always go on July fourth, but it's best on a really hot sunny day, where the shade and water access are appreciated. Picnic tables, BBQ grates, etc.

Screw Auger Falls is a pretty little section of Grafton Notch State Park. The falls themselves (2 of them) aren't particularly high or impressive, but they're still nice. One of the great things is that you're allowed to walk right up to one of them--unlike most national parks. The real "screw auger" falls into a canyon, so you can't get... More

There is a railing on the high side, but I have seen many people climb down the rocks and beyond the railing, something I do not recommend. The stream that feeds the falls is lively, but lots of rocks and... More

Maybe we were in the low-flow season (July) -- but not much to see... some rocks, trickle of water... yawn.

This small scenic attraction is located in Grafton Notch State Park in (or near?) Newry, Maine. We were on a motorcycle ride with a group of friends, and one of them recommended this site to the group, so we stopped for a few hours. It was a blazingly hot afternoon, but inside the Park near the falls it was cool... More

Great place for a picnic and pictures! People can wade in the water; if they are brave they could swim. There are out houses, picnic areas w/grills. Very scenic.
