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!

Lots of the "Attractions" are Summer based.. but the sheer scale and dramatic mountains that drive toward the sky as you travel up through the notch are worth the excursion on its own. Lots of foot traffic in this section... More
