About Franklin Falls Dam
The Franklin Falls Dam offers several multi-use trails throughout its scenic 3,900 acres. Many of the trails follow the Pemigewasset River, which has carved a narrow river valley through the New Hampshire hills. The lush valley provides homes for a variety of native New England Wildlife, giving hikers, and site seers mush to view while traversing these trails.

One popular trail is the Piney Point Nature Trail. This is located just downstream of the dam and loops around a peninsula which is covered by a mixed forest. This is a 1.8-mile-long trail and has several points of interest each corresponding to an interpretive sign which describes the natural occurrence.
