It's worth mentioning we always go in the summer.This highway is famous for its views of fall foliage and I'm sure it's impressive but if you want to go then read up on fall reviews to see about traffic. Winter is nice too for scenery but weather can be tough up there so check on that too. We like to... More

One of the most beautiful roads I've ever been on. Very well designed with lots of stops and photo ops. Driving over a bridge I saw a moose walking through the river. Unreal! The Kanc is 26 miles of majestic, New Hampshire goodness. If visiting White Mountain National Forest, don't miss it!

We drove the length of this highway after doing the Flume Gorge the day before. Frankly, that was a lot more impressive. I guess it's been very dry here, because there was very little water in the streams and the waterfalls were pretty much a trickle. In the fall it must be stunning. For us this summer, it was fine,...

Give yourself plenty of time to drive the route as others are also likely to be doing the same. Keep your eyes peeled for signs noting overlooks as some are right at the place to pull over. Pick a clear day and you will be rewarded with incredible sights. Take time to read the signage at each stop as some... More

Beautiful views, as you drive along. Easy drive but in the middle it is undergoing serious road construction. Dead stop for 20 min at one point 10 min at another point. It's summer so construction is always with us. Even so it is worth the drive.
