The Pemi Trail runs the length of Franconia Notch along the Pemigawassett River. It is a pleasant lightly used alternative to the bike path, and offers a close up view of the river and some spectacular views of the Cannon Cliffs north of Lafayette Place. A number of loop hikes can be made using the Pemi Trail and the bike path, One downside is the proximity to I-93 and the traffic noise. The Pemi Trail can be accessed from virtually any parking area from the Flume to Cannon parking areas.
