Franconia Notch                                

I-93 to Route 3, White Mountains, New Hampshire

Enjoy the many wonders of Franconia Notch State Park as you climb this dramatic "notch" on the western side of the White Mountains. Start at the scenic Kancamagus Highway, Route 112 in Lincoln, NH, and head north on I-93 which becomes Route 3 as it winds thru Franconia Notch. You will encounter many natural and manmade attractions for the whole family.

At the top you will find Echo Lake, Profile Lake, Cannon Mountain and Old Man of the Mountain Museum. Explore the "road less traveled" and visit the home of poet, Robert Frost, who had a summer residence here. Come up to the quaint, friendly villages north of Franconia Notch where the world is a different place.

Natural and White Mountain Attractions...

- Beginning on Rt. 3 just below I-93 exit 35 - and continuing eight miles south, a paved recreation path is available for hikers, bicyclists, cross-country skiers and snowmobilers. The scenic path parallels the Interstate and crosses under it via tunnels but is rarely in view of the highway. It winds thru Franconia Notch and is mostly wooded except for the section around Profile Lake. Pets are not allowed on the trail.

- Known for its trout fishing, fly fishing only allowed. A trail leaves the lake and goes to an observatory at the top of Cannon Mountain.

- (top of page) At the northern end of the Notch, you can enjoy the beach and go for a swim or paddle or fish in cold placid waters. A very scenic trail begins here to the top of Artists Bluff and Bald Mountain. For more information call 603-823-8800.
