Breathtaking views as you drive through this unique mountain pass in Franconia Notch. You can stop at the Old Man of the Mountain museum, and with a unique metal template you can see a silhouette of the Old Man. Franconia Park also has camp grounds and you can paddle on mirror lake.

We drove through Franconia Notch on our way from Campton to Mt. Washington. It was a beautiful drive with waterfalls along the way. Flume gorge is a must see.
