I've been here twice and just waiting to go next year as well. The beauty of the mountains can take your breath away, especially if you visit the Mount Washington Auto Road which takes you higher up for a better view. The best time to catch the changing colors is in the second week of October(Peak). You can check the... More

I enjoy driving for many reasons but one of my favorite things is to look for scenic roads to drive on. The Kancamangus is just that. 26 miles of nothing but winding roads surrounded by trees, mountains and a river to follow.

I hadn't traveled along the Kanceamagus since I was a child but despite the poor weather there was beautiful scenic spots, one after another. Even though it was overcast and snowing the pure beauty was not lost on us.
