Nothing to dislike about this drive, 32 miles of fantastic scenery. Also at the eastern end there is bear notch road (close in the winter) that will take you from the Kanc to Bartlett and avoid the traffic in North Conway.

The snowy mountains are gorgeous but a lot of the side attractions aren't open for the winter season.

The foliage season was just starting, and the colors were spectacular! The road travels, with no commercial distractions to Lincoln, NH where there are many opportunities for shopping, dining, and recreation.

It is the most peaceful drive ever! I always enjoy every second of it, and stop every where to take picture or go for a nice hike!

During nearly any time of the year this road has multiple picture-taking opportunities. Photographers from amateur to professional...don't miss it!

I really loved the views of the snow topped trees and mountains! Can't wait to see them again in warmer weather for comparison!

The best 3 days I have ever spent. October 2014. Breath-taking Views, and beautiful autumn colors. So much to do. Could easily spend 2 weeks and not see it all. Going back in July!
