Visited the Kancamagus Highway in the month of November 2016. The highway provides beautiful views of the White Mountains. The long highway drive gives the most stunning and scenic views of the mountains. Thouh the journey is very long but it steals the heart of the visitors. There are many hikes (long and short.) and waterfalls. One should not miss... More

The Kancamangus Highway is a magnificent roadway that cuts through part of the White Mountains of NH. Fill up the tank and take the 34.5 miler ride you won't regret it! There are many hiking trails and scenic outlooks. My family loves the Lower Falls, this area of the Swift River is fairly wide with huge boulders that are fun... More

Must visit when in New Hampshire during fall. The highway offers a very spectacular scenery. Truely the most scenic highway in the US.

I can't describe our experience the right way, it was just totally awesome! So many colours and water and rocks and lovely covered bridges! It was even better than we expected. Make sure to take enough time for every stop, they are all worth it.

You have to take the ride to truly appreciate how amazing and beautiful it really is. We always make a point to drive it every year. In the the early spring when the slow is melting the serious kayaker compete it the rapids which very cool to watch.

If you have visitors from out of state, the "Kanc" is the best way to experience the views of the NH White Mountains. There is not a lot to do in the winter months, but the views at that time of the year are just stunning. Make sure you eat and that your car has gas before you head out,... More

This is one of my favorite rides in NH. There is so much to see, and it is beautiful anytime of year. All the different spots where you can stop off and hike are amazing. If you live nearby and have never done this ride, I highly suggest it! It's more than just a good passage way from Conway to... More

This is not a ride to take if you are in a hurry to get from point A to point B. There will be plenty of slow drivers ahead of you taking in the sites. It's best enjoyed on a clear day, when you can see the beautiful White Mountains and stop at the pull offs to take in the... More

If you're riding a motorcycle, this is a must ride! The roads are good! The scenery is very good! The stops are awesome! The only downfall is the ride is not long enough (lol). We have rode this highway in both directions and I would recommend to do the same and pick which you enjoy the most. I enjoyed both... More

It was a nice drive - beautiful scenery - Went through yesterday, we did stop along the way to take a picture - I was a little nervous before we left because I didn't know what to expect especially because it's winter time - but the ride was great. There really isn't anything to stop at other then scenic pullovers... More
