Where else in Franconia Notch State Park can you have a view
of Cannon Cliffs, Cannon Mt., and Kinsman Ridge from one spot?
:D


Is this a trick question? Ok, Il bite.......Any part of Franconia ridge that is above tree line, Greenleaf hut, the slides on Flume visible from the visitor center? Next question please :P :wink: :lol:

My photographic juices are flowing, as is my curiosity. We need to get up there and check this puppy out!

It was a troll post. To get the others to chime in and talk about a non-existent building, to get the reader excited over nothing. It is a common tactic on a message board. Some get their jollies over it. I have explored that area completely over the past 23 years. I did find the original road through the notch that i found interesting!

Looks like you have been walking by this cabin for 23 years. :D

Here is a link that proves that the cabin exists and is just off the Fallen Waters Trail.
http://unhinfo.unh.edu/nhoc/outcroppingsFeb07.pdf

Page 10(third paragraph from the bottom) and Page 13 will give you a good idea where the Franky cabin is located.

The cabin is just off the Fallen Waters Trail and problay is the cabin HVACMD found.
I also came across this cabin in the past. :D

Hope this helps

I was hoping to not let the cat out of the bag. Yes, I know it exists. At the special spot one turns right, walks 200', turns right on the narrow trail down the hill and keep going until you reach.

My public apology is sorry about that.

Although I've never been to "Franky", as poven above I know how to get there. Just haven't completed the walk to the end of that trail yet. So it simply had to be there. And remain vague how to get there.

Scenic, have you spent some overnights there?

My 10 year old daughter is the one that actually found the trail to the cabin. She was leading and found it easily, because as I said, where Falling Water Trail veers left, she went almost straight, maybe slightly right on a narrower trail. I realized the mistake immediately, but decided to follow it for a few hundred yards instead.

It was just natural for her to follow what she thought was the correct trail because it was almost straight on and the way the Falling Waters trail veered left. From there the trail is a straight path to the cabin. There are no other turns on that trail.

Excellent find! What I always found that fascinated and excited me is that you can hike an area, trail, or a mountain 100 times and there's always something new to discover. You can do this anywhere. It just seems nicer in the Whites.

What really confused me was the words in your original post that said one half to one hour from leaving the summit of Little Haystack. Your young daughter and you must be 3 times the athlete I am to arrive there so quickly.

Our group is packed and raring to hike the Franconia Ridge loop. There's room for several more if one is interested. See the trip suggestions for more info. We are passing the secret spot too. At my place at 1500' we received a mere 6" of snow. What storm?
:)

Ummmmm, actually, what he said was:

Today my wife, 2 kids and I went up Little Haystack. On the way up, maybe 1/2 hour to 1 hour into the hike, the trail broke to the left after a water crossing or two. Well I missed the trail and headed straight, slightly downhill onto a lesser used trail for about 50 yards.


Cheers :wink: :lol:

I'll be there in a few hours, climbing to the ridge, enjoying the wondrous views with friends. Beautiful sunrise today, few clouds, sunny with light winds. Cheers is right!
:D

No
It is a private cabin owned by the New Hampshire Outing Club. It can only be rented by club members and friends.
So if you dont know anyone in the club you cant get in.

Interesting how that works.........State park, private cabin in the middle of state park..
:D
