Well worth a stop- several items of note a short walk off the highway and access to long trails readily available. Water levels very low during our Oct 16 visit so the full effect of some locations was dimished.

What a beautiful area of Maine! We stopped at Screw Auger Falls, Mother Walker Falls & Moose Cave. The fall leaves during the second week of October were at their peak. It was a majestic drive.

Beautiful mountain views, would be stunning in fall color-we are just a little early. Screw Auger Falls is amazing -water flows through twisty scourged boulders. Moose Cave formed by huge rock that fell into the gorge. Number of hiking trails. Fun to explore.
