Franconia Notch by bike



Why should the tourists have all the fun? My daughter, son-in-law, and granddaughter, explored the Franconia Notch by bike. It's funny, I drive though the notch all the time, but it's been years since I stopped to check out the sights.



The bike trail is incredible. We left from the top of the notch and did the whole length of the park. The bike trail is away from the highway. Even though it was a weekend and the park was busy, we often had the trail to ourselves.


We positioned the van on south end of the notch. That way we had a bit more downhill than uphill. There was still plenty of uphill for my tastes. Great day and a good time.

    1. Sure is. Plenty of great places the tourists don't know about either.

    1. I'll have to work in some more recent ones. We loaded all the bikes in the veggie van for the trip. Still had room for the 4 of us.
