We traveled a little later than peak foliage season, so it was much more pleasant with fewer tourists. Sabbaday Falls is well worth a stop.

This is a beautiful stretch of road, but no more so than any other scenic road in New Hampshire. The name is a bit misleading - it's not really a "highway", but rather a lovely 2 lane (no lights or stop signs) road perfect for sightseeing. There are many stop off points with breathtaking photo opportunities. Several overlooks have pavilions... More

Very beautiful scenery in the fall month of October. My friend and I went later in the day (entered around 3:30p.m.) because the next day the original day we were going to do it, the weather was predicted to be really bad. This was a great decision because we basically avoided all the crowds. We had to skip all the... More

We came to New Hampshire for the foilage and our drive on US112 from Lincoln to Conway and back with the foilage almost at its peak. We came on the absolute perfekt day. Monday, sunshine, leaves turning to yellow and red. Awesome. Breathtaking. Several scenic viewpoints along the route. We took a number of strolls at every one of them... More

Very nice scenic highway! We had perfect weather conditions, blue sky, sun and very beautiful leaf colors. There are some nice lookouts, and a lot of trails, shorter and longer ones on the highway. We liked the one to the waterfalls.

One of the loveliest drives it has been my pleasure to make. The weather could have been better but the scenery could not.

A wonderful scenic drive of around 80 miles round trip. There are plenty of stop off points and scenic viewpoints. It is worth the effort taking some of the short walks to see even more. You will need $3 to get a day parking permit at your first stopping point. Although we were visiting around the peak time in the... More
