Yes, we highly recommend the sites within Franconia Notch State Park. There are hikes which take you to many numerous waterfalls, echo lake and of course flume gorge. Worth a two day adventure if you can spare the time!

Franconia Notch State Park is the area where visitors stay and enjoy scenic photography at the riverside and many families are doing Bar-B-Que there. It is very beautiful area where you can enjoy nature.

The hike to Flume Gorge is a really enjoyable hike. 2 mile loop. Uphill and downhill, on a dirt path most of the way. Beautiful forest. Wonderful small waterfalls. Lots of quiet spaces to enjoy God’s creation. I would recommend going opposite the crowd and...More
