A drive along Route 112 ( Kancamagus Highway) through the center of White Mountain National Forest is not to be missed. There are scenic overlooks for lovely views of the surrounding mountains and valleys. There are parking areas for hiking trails from less than a mile to several miles. Some of the trails lead to waterfalls. Not to be missed... More

Absolutely spectacular views everywhere you look. I loved every moment of being in this national Forest. I camped at Dolly Copp campground – and that was good too except for the fact that they don't have showers. Those are to be had 5 miles south at the visitor center. Plenty of stopping points, lots of amazing hiking – I hiked... More

With bitter cold temps, we opted to go for a drive through the National Forest, up to Bretton Woods. Beautiful!

Plenty of activities in this area from hiking to seasonal sports like skiing. Gorgeous scenery and the lack of cell phone service in most of the area make it quite relaxing. There are some amazing restaurants in the area as well. The downside is the obvious economic issues (many derelict businesses and homes) and a short supply of quality hotels.... More

We visited with great autumn colours and a fabulous day so of course things looked good. But this is the sort of place where the heart feels good at anytime.

I recently visited Boston and drove to the White Mountains for the day. It wasn't the best day weather wise but that didn't hinder things, in fact it seemed to make it better. The clouds over the mountains made for some stunning photo opportunities, and there are lots of those. We grabbed some snacks at the start in a 7/11... More

What a way to connect with nature, it was beautiful and adventurous! We climbed to the biggest waterfall and we loved every minute of our walk. Dress in sneakers and comfortable clothing, you might get a little wet and some paths may be a little slippery for sandals.
