The Old Man of the Mountain in Franconia, New Hampshire was the iconic symbol of New Hampshire for decades. It was heartbreaking when it collapsed in the early morning of May 3, 2003.
The Old Man Profiler Plaza is a tasteful memorial to the great granite face without being tacky of overly sentimental.
The memorial is adjacent to the Cannon Mountain Aerial Tramway and there is ample parking at the gift shop / museum entrance to the plaza. A long paved path winds it way to the viewing area. If you are handicapped or a slow walker there is a much closer parking area just follow the signage.
When you are in the plaza find the profile post that matches your height and stand on the feet that are inlaid on the stone patio. You will see a silhouette of the Old Man as he was before the collapse.
