A well-marked, gently rolling ride crisscrossing the Pemigewasset River through Franconia Notch to its headwaters at Profile Lake. See the famous Old Man of the Mountain (he's there till late every night) and the Basin, a 30-foot-wide, 15 foot- deep pothole that Samuel Easton described in his 1958 white Mountain Guide as "...one of the beautiful haunts of nature. A luxurious and delicious bath fit for the ablutions of a goddess." This ride is popular with families and offers many excellent picnic spots. Tread: 6.9 miles on paved bike path. Location: 0.1 mile east of Interstate 93 (Franconia Notch State Parkway), exit 1, in Franconia Notch State Park.
