Owner description: Formerly New Hampshire's best known landmark, this rock formation resembling a man's profile collapsed on May 3, 2003.

You would think a fitting tribute to the Old Man would have been a bit more thought out ! I found it a Dim tribute . This Figure is on there license plates , also the State quarter . Why not take up donations and recreate this Stone formation in Fiberglass ? After all its almost like it represents the State ! Looking through props just does not justify the original as I remember it as a child ... I was very disappointed .

Although it has fallen down, the state park has done a wonderful tribute and it is worth to see. It is very easy access from the highway. There is a lot of history of how it was preserved over the years before it finally fell in 2003.

We walked down after the crowds were gone (7:30pm) and had the place to ourselves. Enjoyed the peace and quiet. Too bad missed the old man.

As it was very close to the Cannon Mountain, we visited this place to and the memorial is very nice. Do not miss to stand in the foot prints by your height to see the Old Man of the Mountain!

I think the state park system needs to accept the fact that the old man is gone and look for another symbol for the state of NH. The scenery is fantastic and is enough in and of itself without a lame attempt to keep the old man going. He is gone! Accept it! Enjoy the beauty of the mountains for what they are!
