We did not know what to expect upon arrival and we were pleasently surprised. We can't wait to go back for longer next time.

My first trip to New Hampshire and I have fallen in love with White Mountain National Forest. From The Kancamagus Highway to Mount Washington. The rocks, rivers, foliage, and wildlife are absolutely amazing. I saw my first moose! A majestic but scary beast. So big. Lots of hiking trails and beautiful photo ops. One week is not enough here so... More

Back again to the White Mountains. Some of the best hiking in the world from easy to strenuous. Fishing rock climbing or just a beautiful drive. Waterfalls and senic views abound. Stop in the Whites you won't regret it.

one of our favorite places, and so much to do. Things on the "must do/see list" : Visit the Mount Washington Hotel, have lunch and a drink on the porch... one of the most relaxing experiences! Visit the little river park in North Woodstock center...purchase a solid tube ahead of time if you are adventuresome. Visit the jewelry store there... More

The White Mountains are amazing. The scenery is incredible. In the spring everything is lush and green and in the winter, white and tranquil. We love all seasons in the White Mountains. Lots to see and do.

The Flume hike is awesome, cantilevered stairs hug the sides of the gorge. Do not miss this easy hike.

Lovely campgrounds and beautiful woods. I'm certain the real crowning jewel is the fall colors but we were here in the summer. Lots of flying bugs so bring your repellent. It's beautiful and very pleasant. I'm looking forward to camping here in the future - it's now on my to-do list.

We only had a couple of days here but managed to squeeze in several walks and scenic drives. This is a spectacular area and deserves more time to experience it. Buy yourself a decent hiking guide and explore. We based ourselves in North Conway and found that to be central to many of the hikes
