11 Best Things To Do in Franconia Notch State Park

As a patch of wilderness that remains pure and pristine in the White Mountains, there are so many enjoyable things to do in Franconia Notch State Park that make it extra special.

It spans nearly 6,500 acres, offering gorgeous views of the region’s natural beauty and miles of hikes.

Pulling from my time here during multiple New England fall road trips, I’m going to let you in on the must-sees for when you go!

Artist Bluff

Artist Bluff is a lookout and trail route. It ends with a spectacular view over Echo Lake, which, as the name suggests, is truly inspirational.

The best way to get to the top of Cannon Mountain might well be the aerial tramway. As expected, the panoramic views from atop the mountain are unbeatable.

This beautiful lake offers a beach, which is a popular attraction in the summer. Fishing, swimming, and kayaking are the activities of the day.

Echo Lake

Flume Gorge is possibly the most well-known and popular hiking attraction in the park. It is a natural gorge that stretches about 800 feet.
