A short but demanding hike to a wonderful granite-ledge overlook with terrific views of Grafton Notch. Grafton Notch is as wild and remote as Evans Notch is intimate and inviting. While there are a host of accessible, roadside spectacles to savor within Grafton Notch State Park, including beautiful Screw Auger Falls and the deep flume known as Moose Cave, the region is best known for its imposing terrain. Here, the Appalachian Trail cuts through what many thru-hikers consider the trail’s most difficult section. Despite its relatively short length, this hike provides a taste of the area’s demanding terrain with a steep 1-mile, 900-foot vertical ascent. Yet, it also rewards your effort with interesting caverns to explore and amazing views from the spectacular outlook known as Table Rock.
