Took a quick trip to Crawford Notch State Park in Hart's Location NH. Did not want to go "hiking", but there are certainly enough trails for the day hiker and the serious trail hiker. Just drove to the Railroad Station, which is a replica of the old stations which have stood here for over 100 years. Wandered about for a... More

We drove through the Crawford notch state park in our way to North Conway. We decided to take the short hike (30 min with a 6 years old) to the Ripley Falls. I am so glad we did. It was the highlight of the trip. These falls are beautiful. And the trail is beautiful and relatively easy for kids but... More

Beautiful place. Parked my bicycle at the train station and hiked from there. So quiet and timeless. I have started planning my trips around my road bike. Nice wide shoulders on both rte. 3 and 302. Great hills to ascend and then the exhilaration of racing down the other side. Lots to do and see in this area.

Stayed here for 2 nights In early august. We foolishly were in a rush when we booked the reservations and made them for wrong dates. The single ranger there was more than accommodating. We were able to get a spot and they sorted it out in the morning. They didn't make us re pay or give us any other trouble!... More

A wonderful hiking area. Do not miss the Elephant Head hike. It is wonderful for kids. Our 2 year old and 6 year old had a blast climbing the rocks and walking the "balance beam" logs placed over mud. A short hike at just over .5 miles long it was a the perfect distance for small kids but we saw... More

We decided to take the scenic route from Portland, Maine to Stowe, Vermont, and oh boy are we glad we did. We stopped off at Crawford Notch State Park and the views are breathtaking. you can pull right off the highway and look around, then take a walk. Please do, I never knew how beautiful New Hampshire was until I... More

Franconia Notch, Pinkham Notch, and the drive North along the Presidential Range didn't match up to the scenery through Crawford State Park. Must do if in the area.

Very nice drive. Many places to stop and enjoy the park and take pictures. Hoped to see a moose, but didn't. It was raining pretty heavily when we came through, so didn't stray far from the car. We'll be back in the future to enjoy it more.

I saw a black bear for the first time in years! It was awesome! Beautiful park with lots to do, but the bear was totally the highlight for me.

We drove around and also hiked at Arethusa Falls. We stopped in the Willey House Gift Shop what a cute place to buy souvenirs or a bite to eat BUT the best reason to stop is real flush toilets in a clean bathroom with running water!! The picnic area across the street is a beautiful place too. There are ducks... More
