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.

We drove all through the White Mountains and saw a lot of beautiful scenery but Franconia Notch was one of our favorite areas. The fall foliage here was especially beautiful.

Absolutely beautiful mountain area! Views are fantastic! I only wish the fall color had been a bit more when we were there. Didn't get to do any hiking but there are trails.

This was a hard hike (we did the Franconia Ridge Loop) and it took us nearly 11 hours. We are experienced hikers and it still kicked our butts! Still definitely worth it

It was too early for foliage but still nice to be there and drive through. Made a few stops to check the sights out. All in all a good day.

There are certainly places you can stop and break out a picnic, just look for any sort of signage indicating a landmark or camping or park. You're pretty much guaranteed to find a table sit at or grassy hill to relax on no... More
