We took the Kancamagus highway to return to our B&B in Campton after leaving White Mountain. The drive was quiet and beautiful even in August. I imagine it would be gorgeous when the leaves change.

My wife and I didn't drive the whole length, but it was very pretty and a fun drive. All of the twists and turns make it fun. It's really neat to drive through a forest, I just wish we were here a month later to see all of the fall colors. This drive reminded me a lot of Pisgah National... More

This is an absolutely beautiful area of the northeast. The weather was perfect for a late summer motorcycle ride. There are so many scenic opportunities on the Kancamagus! Definitely worth the trip!!

This is a very scenic highway, even in June. I bet it is really something in the fall and wish I could see it some time.

We stopped by lower falls on the Kancamangus. It can be very crowded, but there are a lot of natural slides that are fun for young and old. The tough part can be finding a parking place. Either get there early or circle around a couple of times.

Our first trip without the kids, which was over 10 years ago. We went to all the major stops for a look. Our favorite stops were the riverside trail at Rocky Gorge, where we saw a great blue heron, and the walk up to Sabbaday Falls. We enjoyed watching all the swimmers at Lower Falls. Bring a picnic and get... More

The Kangamangus Highway, in NH, is one of the most scenic areas around . In the fall, when the leaves are changing, this road becomes one of my favorite drives. There are so many wonderful places to hike and visit, that this drive can become very popular! During peak foliage times, this stretch of road, can become quite crowded with... More

The Autumn colours were out of this world and all I'd ever dreamt of. Certainly worth the visit. So vast you felt you had the highway and scenery all to yourself. Lots of interesting plaves to take a break on the way. Would recommend New England in the Fall to anyone.

We visited Kancamagus Highway (New Hampshire) on our New England roadtrip with my girlfriend last year. The 35 mile drive through the mountain was breathtaking in the autumn, so beautiful I would like to see that again.. (The entire Granite State amazing.) We decided to go back from Lincoln to Conway on a different route, so we headed up to... More

This is a great ride looking at the mountians and rivers running along the side of the road. Lots of people stop to take a dip.
