Dixville Notch is a 127-acre park off of NH-26 in northern New Hampshire that features a scenic gorge and waterfalls on two mountain streams.

The state park is divided in half by route 26, with a stream flowing on each side. Upon traveling northwest from Errol, visitors will first come to the turn-off for the Cascade Brook Picnic Area. Here there are picnic tables available, signage with historic information, and a short 10-minute walk to Huntington Falls. Just up the road from this area is the Flume Brook Picnic Area that also provides picnic tables and an even shorter walk to Flume Brook, which flows through a gorge. A short, popular hike in Dixville Notch takes hikers to the top of Table Rock, which provides beautiful overlooks Lake Gloriette and the Notch.

While the park is open year round and free of charge, it is unstaffed, and there are no visitor services available aside from vault toilets.
