“Biking in Franconia Notch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2013

The bike trail starts near Echo Lake and Cannon Mountain with signs leading all the way down to the Flume Gorge. The trail follows the highway and is mostly downhill. The scenery is beautiful and bike path is paved all the way down to the Flume Gorge parking lot. Went during Memorial Day weekend 2013 and was definitely worth the ride.

“Great hiking, skiing, and more”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2013

Franconia Notch is relatively small but what a gorgeous place! Some of the best hiking trails in New Hampshire can be found here. You can go on a short easy 15 minute hike such as Artist's Bluff, a longer but very scenic 50 minute hike such as Lonesome Lake or an all day strenuous and adventurous hike such as Mt. Lafayette. Their are two rock climbing areas, The Cannon Mountain cliff or Eagle Cliff across the road. You can even spend a day at the Echo lake and relax in the sun. This area has it all.

I am a local. I can't think of anywhere else I would prefer to live. The mountains are beautiful and the people are friendly.

This drive through Franconia Notch took my breath away! Although it rained the entire time we were there, it was still one of the most beautiful experiences I have ever had!
