Relatively easy hike for breathtaking views of Echo Lake and Cannon Mountain
Free hiking trail. Beautiful views. Elevation 400/ft. Great hiking trail for first timers.
Artits bluff is a short trail, offering one of the most popular views of Canon Mountain and Fraconia Notch. It's a 1.5 mile loop. The main trail continues down to Route 18 near Echo Lake.
Another great short hike for the whole family. Located across from the Echo lake parking lot by the interstate overpass. A five minute walk leads to steep rock steps along the Artists Bluff cliff face and ends with a dramatic entry onto the top of the cliff. The view is so impressive it was long…
At just 1.5 miles round trip, this hike gives great payoff for minimal effort. Gorgeous views overlooking Cannon mountain. We recommend a post-hike swim in Echo Lake.
“Perhaps the best restaurant in the White Mountains region. Especially good for a romantic meal after a day in the mountains. The small and and rustic dining room is staffed by the owners who prepare the food themselves. Be sure to call for a reservation. ”
“A great spot for breakfast or lunch. Coffee and other hot drinks, delicious baked goods and unique art.”
“You have to make reservations - but if you can get in, it will be an awesome experience. ”
