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!

What a great view! The house/museum is very nice, and the tour guide is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the site and the history of the Weeks family. The drive up is fun. .. we didn't have time, but would have loved to walk it. A great way to spend 1-3 hours (depending on if you drive or walk).

Now that we have an infant getting to the top of a mountain for the great 360 view is harder. It was amazing to drive up, then just climb the tower! No fee, suggested donation and we were seeing all the surrounding mountain ranges. Convenient and beautiful!

Long drive up a narrow road, pretty exciting. When you reach the top, you are surrounded by a spectacular view. Climb up and visit the fire tower, pack a picnic lunch. Visit the historic Weeks summer home. Free and friendly.

We have hiked this and drove this. The views are breathtaking. There is a fire/weather tower at the top that my 3 little girls think is Rapunzels tower. I cannot stress enough how beautiful it is here.

I love history so this was a great place to learn a bit of history & see some breathtaking views. You can drive right to the base of the fire tower. Short trails to hike. A perfect way to spend an afternoon.

This is an absolutely gorgeous location for a picnic or outdoor activities. The historic house is open to the public for tours - well worth the drive up the winding road!

Park offers lots of options and surprises. You can take scenic drive (1 & 1/2 miles) to top of Mt Prospect, hike several trails up or around Mt, climb fire tower, check out scenic overlooks, or visit Weeks estate / museum. Building has interesting exhibits - Check it out!

Did this one recently with my hubby. Beautiful walk with the foliage so remember bring your camera and water bottle (or even a picnic lunch).

Visited in late September to see the foliage. A little of the path from most foliage hot spots, so we were not in a crowd. The Weeks house is on top if the mountain, so you can hike or drive up. There are several places to pull over and see expansive views of the White mountains and the fall colors.... More
