Dixville Notch State Park, New Hampshire – Dixville Notch State Park consists of 127 acres along Route 26 in Dixville, New Hampshire. This state park has many opportunities for hikers, photographers, tourists and waterfall buffs. Personally, I prefer to visit Dixville Notch during the autumn months, during peak foliage, but the notch is interesting any time of year.

Within Dixville Notch State Park is Cascade Brook and Flume Brook. Both have waterfalls along them, and are excellent photo subjects. They can be easily reached from roadside parking lots on Route 26. After heavy rains, the waterfalls look great!

The steep cliffs of Dixville Notch State Park offer excellent views of Lake Gloriette, The Balsams Grand Resort and Route 26. During the autumn months the Balsams Resort looks incredible surrounded by autumn foliage. The below view point can be reached by a short hike that starts off Route 26 near Lake Gloriette. You can see the parking lot on the lower left side of the image.

Dixville Notch is an excellent area to photograph and visit. Plan on at least one full day to see all the roadside attractions, and if you are hiking you will need an extra few days to explore the trails in the area.
