With gentle grades, swimming options, and amazing scenery in one of New Hampshire’s most dramatic locations, this bike trip has everything you need for the perfect day. There are few places in New Hampshire or even New England that can match the scenic vistas found in Franconia Notch. This bike ride, which can range from just a few miles to a full 17.6-mile day, lets you see this gorgeous area from the seat of your bike. It is recommended for experienced bike riders ages 6 and up, or any age at all in a bike trailer or child carrier. While much of it is gradual, there are a few short, steep sections that may be a safety concern for kids who are inexperienced with properly braking while descending. Younger children can safely walk down the steeper sections with adult supervision. Helmets are always recommended.
