The Basin is located in Franconia Notch, not far from the former site of the “Old Man in the Mountain”. Called the “Old Man’s Foot Basin”, it is only .1 mile from the parking area off I-93. The Pemigewasset River flows through a narrow chute, constantly stirring the pool below in a clockwise direction. The result is a deep, circular pool carved in the granite. Continuing another mile on the trail will bring you the bonus of Kinsman Falls and Rocky Glen Falls.
