It was worth the climb on the single lane road. John Wingate Weeks was a visionary and I enjoyed becoming acquainted with a man I'd never heard of-- who meant so much to our parks system and, I quote "Weeks is best known for his efforts at establishing the eastern national forest system. In the early 1900s all the forest... More

The Weeks road is just as narrow as most of Mt Washington but with trees and guard rails. If you do not the drive up Weeks you will not like the drive up Mt Washington.

Gorgeous, panoramic views! Short 1-1/2 mile drive brings you to a summit where you can enjoy incredible views from the tower. Peaceful, 10 minute walking trails circle the old estate. Would love to visit again in the fall to enjoy the fall foliage.

Great local history lesson and a great vista. Nice museum for adults and children of the flora and fauna of the area. They also have a guided tour of the building.

Worth the time if staying in the area for a drive or hike up the road to the top for some great views. Not much to do up there besides climb the fire tower or visit the house. Very friendly staff. Be careful on your drive up/down: Drive slow! Narrow road, tight turns and look out for other cars and... More

We, six shipmates from the USS John W Weeks, met at the park to donate ship memorabilia and a check to the museum. http://www.greatnorthwoods.org/weeks/ It's a beautiful park on MT Prospect with commanding views of the countryside, especially from atop the old fire tower. They are in the process of renovating the museum. One can drive up the mostly one... More

We hike Well's State Park often, they have well marked groomed trails, we bring our dog there a lot and they seem to be adding more campsites. They trails range from very easy to moderate.

Whether you hike up the hill during the day, or at night by moonlight, it is a great walk! The viewpoints along the way are spectacular - and it is a great way to take in the surrounding areas!

The drive to get there it's stunning with lookout points along the way. Once at the top check out the Museum and the tower. It sure has amazing views. Don't forget to do some hikes while at the top. Sit on the deck at the end of an easy hike to enjoy the views!
