My husband and I vacationed in Franconia, NH during the 4th of July. We found the area to be quite refreshing. Low crowds, beautiful mountain areas with gorgeous views. We chose to hike to Franconia Falls and it was a pleasant walk for most of the way. Towards the end of the hike you do have to climb up an incline over some rocks, tree roots and a somewhat difficult pathway. It is doable for most people. I would not recommend the end of this trail if you have health issues or need assistance walking. At the end of the trail, you will be able to climb out onto the rocks and enjoy the falls. Wonderful to sit and relax and take in the views or enjoy the water should you wish to do so. You can still see beautiful scenery along most of the trail if you can't make it up the trail at the end. Enjoy!!

Beautiful area. Enjoyed hiking and discovering boulders, rock formations, streams and waterfalls. And the fresh mountain air!

If you are in New England try to mix in the Kancamagus Highway. Google maps suggested a stupid route from NH to ME using 91 and 93. We went cross lots on the K Hwy added like 10 minutes to the trip and order of magnitude more beautiful.

Water cascading over granite rock in a mountain setting. A must see easy to find in the beautiful area near Lincoln.
