We drove through and it was pretty. There were many trails and other things to do but we were not up to hiking. I would like to go back and do some hiking and see some of the water falls.

We are visiting during the summer and greatly love the beauty of this area. And I know that in many ways it is even more beautiful during the winter months. If you love to hike, this is a place for you to enjoy.

I have lived here for over 10 years. The views throughout the seasons are magnificent. The weather is always hit or miss and you cant count on the weather station to tell you what is going to happen next.

Franconia Notch is a spectacular mountain pass winding between the peaks of the Kinsman and Franconia mountain ranges. Another beautiful wonder of God's creation.
