We are visiting during the summer and greatly love the beauty of this area. And I know that in many ways it is even more beautiful during the winter months. If you love to hike, this is a place for you to enjoy.

I like the hiking trails in Franconia Notch. Exploring everything we could see was great fun. Waterfalls, rapids, large rocks and hiking to see some amazing views. Even admiring their lakes was worthwhile. Wherever we went, beauty was everywhere. We came here at a good...More

I have lived here for over 10 years. The views throughout the seasons are magnificent. The weather is always hit or miss and you cant count on the weather station to tell you what is going to happen next.

Franconia Notch is a spectacular mountain pass winding between the peaks of the Kinsman and Franconia mountain ranges. Another beautiful wonder of God's creation.

Driving from Campton up through Franconia Notch is beautiful any time of year but especially in the fall. If at all possible you should do it during the week when the crowds are smaller.

The Franconia Notch is a beautiful area. Unfortunately, we were slightly too early to see the best of the Fall colours but the scenery was still stunning. Simply driving through the area is enjoyable and enables you to admire the beautiful mountains and valleys.
