-Franconia Notch State Park-
Come get lost in nature in the Franconia Notch State Park. At the park there are tons of awesome and beautiful trails to hike on. The most popular is Flume Gorge, a hike to a roaring waterfall surrounded by vegetation. 


The park is home to tons of hikes and trials to travel on. One of the most popular is the Old man trail. At the end of the hike you can see the remains of a outcropping of rock on a cliff that forms the "old man".

Another beautiful hike in the park is the flume gorge hike. Walk on the wooden boardwalk, making it an easy hike as you walk between the giant slabs of granite covers in moss and shrubbery. The walk is directly over the river and at points over the waterfalls that adds the mist and unique experience. 

A popular outlook is artists bluff, a shorter trail with an end on a rocky bald ridge overlooking the valley. The hikes are framed with tall aspens and yellow Burch along with tons of thick green foliage.
