Relaxing drive, with spectacular views of the fall foliage and surrounding mountains. It leads to the Franconia Notch state park parking lot where there is a visitor area with information regarding the near~by trails and activities. There are also lots by the Old Man Historical Site that overlooks the cliff and a lot by the Lafayette Campsite which leads to the Franconia ridge hiking trail along with other ones.

Kevin said it best. I too have loved this drive all of my adult life. The beauty is incredible, but even betterin the fall foliage. Just be prepared for a lot of traffic.

I have traveled this route a number of times over 50 years. Despite how busy the road is in any drivable season, it is a classic for scenery of mountains, forest, river, etc. It is spectacular in the fall, when it is incredibly busy. Somehow, word about New England foliage leaked out. In a good year, it is better than you've heard. In a bad year, it still beats almost anyplace else.
