Description

Above Echo Lake in Franconia Notch State Park is a beautiful secluded cliff that should be more popular. Sunny and southwest facing with no apparent seepage and quality quartzy rock.

Getting There

Break left and uphill just before you get to echo and follow the natural grade of the land the it'll bring you to the cliff. Keep on trending up and right and you'll get there. Early season is dry, but cold.
