Special Features:Over time, fluvial and glacial erosive forces have formed spectacular scenery and natural geologic formations at this site. Park was home to New Hampshire's famous Old Man of the Mountain, a granite outcropping that looked like a profile of a man. Sadly, the formation collapsed May 3, 2003. Attractions at Franconia Notch include Flume Gorge, New England Ski Museum, and an aerial tramway to the summit of 4,180-foot Cannon Mountain. The Appalachian National Scenic Trail passes through the park (see separate entry in national trails section).
