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.
