I have hip troubles, but my fiance' took me for a ride and stop at the visitor's center. We bought a White Mountain Guide which has been recently been updated. We were advised to walk to the falls close by. Parking ANYWHERE in the forests is 4.00.....for the whole day.

We've been there many times before, sometimes camping, sometime just driving around. This time it was the "just driving around".

This is "the" place in NH for hiking and getting outside to enjoy all those things that make life great. Hiking primarily, but sitting in a cool mountain stream or river on hot summer day after a hike? Sublime

I have been to the White Mountains many times. I have gone with just my Husband, alone, and with family. I would recommend it for anyone. Some of the things there I am not able to do anymore but even just the drive and some areas are wheelchair accessible. When I was younger I would treck off into the woods... More

I highly recommend the Kangamangus Highway (RT 112). If you are lucky, you may see Moose near the western end of the Highway. Stop at the overlooks to enjoy the views and be sure to stop at the rest area on the east side of the mountain to enjoy the river as it flows over rock creating mini-waterfalls. Also be... More

The views, the wild life, the quietness, the brooks, the mountains, the trails, the cleanliness and quality of the air, are more than relaxing they are tranquil and simple and really easy to get used to. I moved from the hustle and bustle of southern New Hampshire to the tranquil north. I drive 1 and 1/2 hours one way to... More
