Grafton Notch State Park is just over the New Hampshire border in northwestern Maine. The park is open seasonally from mid May to mid October. During the winter it can be accessed with skis, snowshoes or snowmobiles. A very challenging section of the Appalachian Trail runs through the park for the hard core hikers.
The Grafton Notch Scenic Byway runs along the spine of the park with several scenic pull offs and short trails.
On an early trip to the park I was afraid my dog Vincent was going to fall into Moose Cave.
