Echo Lake from Artists Bluff – Franconia Notch, New Hampshire
Echo Lake, Franconia Notch – Many photographers who visit the New Hampshire White Mountains are interested in roadside attractions that can be easily reached. So today I am going to share a great location, Echo Lake, in the northern section of Franconia Notch State Park.
From a history point of view, Franconia Notch is amazing. One of the more interesting events that took place in Franconia Notch was on Echo Lake. According to the book “A History of Cannon Mountain: Trails, Tales and Ski Legends” By Meghan McCarthy McPhaulan an event called the “Road-E-O” car race was held on Echo Lake when it was frozen during the 1950s to raise funds for the Franconia Ski Club (FSC). The FSC was founded in 1933, and they are one of the reasons why Cannon Mountain is what it is today.

Franconia Notch State Park – White Mountains, New Hampshire
Artists Bluff, Franconia Notch State Park – Artists Bluff is a rocky outcrop on the north end of Franconia Notch State Park in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. This outcrop offers a unique view of Cannon Mountain, Franconia Notch Parkway, Eagle Cliff, Echo Lake and of Mount Lafayette.
The hike is only about a 20 minute hike (one way) from Echo Lake, but the views are worth it! Hopefully on the day of your visit clouds will dominate the sky, making for the perfect White Mountains scene.
