FRANCONIA, N.H. (AP) – New Hampshire residents will have free access to Franconia Notch Park attractions on Rediscover Franconia Notch Day.

Gov. John Lynch designated Saturday as the day to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the discovery of the Flume Gorge, the park’s 80th anniversary and the 70th anniversary of the Cannon Mountain Aerial Tramway.

Lynch will kick off the day with a walk through the Flume followed by a ride to the summit of Cannon Mountain.
