Stopped to take pictures of the falls which were beautiful. River was not high despite recent rains so we were able to walk across the rocks to get some nice pictures. Small pools of water had tadpoles in various stages of development into frogs. Paths were well-kept and we noticed that areas were accessible by wheelchair too. Informational plaques about... More

Wonderful waterfall and smooth rock water slide. Nice picnic area along the stream with grills and tables. Also has several restrooms. The directions are very inaccurate however. It is not where Google map shows it to be. Continue on past where it says it is for several miles. You will then enter graffam notch state park. It is about a... More

We stopped here to see the falls, and were amazed at how beautiful it was, with the potholes and gorge, twists and turns, and even wildflowers around.

Was a little icy but was nice easy walk up the river side. Fairly open. Great spot to get some nice photos of the falls. Enjoy!

We visit at least once a summer. Nice area to walk around on a hot summer day. We have taken our children since they were little though you do need to be careful because of slippery rocks.

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.
