So much natural beauty in Franconia Notch and specifically atop Cannon Mountain. Take the aerial tramway up and hike back down if you're ambitious! The views are tremendous. I like to say that this is God's country. You can feel His spirit there in the peace and quiet. At the top of Cannon there is a snack bar and gift shop, so you have some "amenities," too. Well worth the price to take this short ride on the tram.

A great trip up the gondola. Great views on the way up and down. A little tough walking for us old folks on the trails at the top. Personnel were very knowledgeable about the area but we saw no wildlife.

A short 8 minute trip up the mountain in the tram led to some beautiful views and scenic hiking trails. You can spend as much time as you like on top of the mountain as the tram goes back down every 15 min. You could see for 40 miles from the observatory tower. Bring a sweatshirt as the temperature is much cooler at the top of the mountain. If you buy this ticket along with the flume gorge (discovery pass) you save $4 per ticket. We were able to do both in a day with out any rushing around. The flume gorge is only about 1 mile drive down the highway from the tram. There is food available at both locations as well as gift shops.

What could have been a completely enjoyable experience- was ruined by claustrophobia and greed. I say this, because they crammed nearly 80 people into the Tram and if you happened to be short- you could see nothing. People were pressed up against each other and it was annoying. My kids and I could not see the view at all. At $15 a pop- that is disappointing. The snack shop at the top- is over-priced and yucky and the staff is rude and snotty. The view and trails at the top of the mountain were amazing- we were lucky that it was a clear day- but the trip was ruined by spending so much money to have my head in someones armpit. If they would just let like 40 instead of 80 people on- it may have been more enjoyable.

There is an amazing bike path in Franconia notch park that goes from Cannon mt. (by the tram) to the flume gorge. It is mostly downhill if you start at Cannon. You can ride one way and get picked up by shuttle (they take your bike,too) so you don't have to ride back uphill. You must pre-arrange at Cannon before you go. I think it is $10- well worth it!
