    I wouldn't say it's dramatic, but you can get some nice ledge walk near the border into NY. This is your first chance of seeing the NYC skyline

    FWIW, I still had to hike from Franconia Notch to Harpers afterwards to complete my flip, after summiting Katahdin. I did a pretty unorthodox flip, but finished the dang thing haha

    That link has you park at the Wolf Gap Recreation Area, which is always open thankfully (that's the route I did a few weekends ago). Oddly enough, FS road 92 was open at both ends, the gates were...
