We drove through the White Mountains National Forest on our way up to Mount Washington while on vacation. The drive was great with many viewing areas and scenic vistas on all sides. The rivers are right off the road in some areas. Take your camera, stop and get your feet wet!

The ranger stations are amazing - learned so much from the displays! The Scenic view areas are great and well maintained. The new section and rest area on the kangamangas with the opportunity to swim in the river is amazing!

The White Mountains offer you mother nature at her best. It's impossible to come here and not be in awe of her majesty. There's something for everyone, from the most adventurous to those who just want to soak in the beauty of the mountains.

Anyplace you choose in the White Mountains, any camping location, any hike you choose-with a little planning, will likely result in your visit here becoming both an annual trip as well as something you and your family will never forget.

Love the hiking paths at the Basin. The whole area smells of Christmas with all the pine trees. The only thing that I disliked is the parking. It was very crowded and parking was at a preimum

I absolutely loved this place. It was so pretty. There is so many things to do. Can definately recommend going to the Flume Gorge and try the tram. I am definately coming back here some day. You can not be dissapointed by this place.
