New Trail Planned Near Old Man of the Mountain Site

Officials with the state parks department presented plans for a new Franconia Notch trail Thursday. 

The trail would begin near an existing viewing plaza, dedicated to the iconic, now-fallen, rock formation known as the Old Man of the Mountain.

Funded by donations to Old Man of the Mountain Legacy Fund, the trail would lead to the boat launch at Profile Lake, and include a granite boardwalk over wetland areas to make the trail universally accessible. 

New Hampshire Parks and Recreation will be accepting public comment on the Profile Lake Trail project until April 21.
