  • Gorgeous place, very scenic and you can swim there. Lots of great photo ops as well
  • So easy to just drive by. You've got to stop and see the falls and just overall views. Gorgeous.
  • This place is an awesome playground any time of year! Hiking for all levels with access to Maine's 5th highest peak and some of the hardest sections of the AT. Popular in summer time as there are many swimming holes and easy camera ops right out of the car. Make time to check out screw auger falls, moose cave and mother walker falls which are all short walks from the car. This is beautiful country in winter with great ice climbing and snowshoeing and BC skiing. Many people snowmobile here. Please respect this place and carry out your trash. Graffiti has become a problem in the park which is a tragedy. Please respect the park
  • Beautiful place to spot moose and to hike and to go to various different geological formations and waterfalls.
  • Great place to enjoy the outdoors! Hiking, swimming, fishing, camping, and scenic.
