This is one of the finest scenic roads in the northeastern US with fabulous views along the way. On a hot day, stop by one of the 'swimming holes' you'll see but be prepared for ice cold water (great on hot days). I like the fact that at either end, the towns of Lincoln or Conway offer a lot to... More

The hike was great although not well marked. Be prepared to ford some small streams using stepping stones You will also need to climb over some rocks and roots on the trail. Don't let this stop you but just be prepared. Our dog loved the hike as well

I travelled the lower part of the highway, having seen much of the rest of the National Forest already. This area is less spectacular than others (again at the lower end). On the plus side, it is close to Conway and very accessible for families. A river runs next to the highway which is a nice stop as well. Minuses:... More

This highway is full of amazing views. There are no gas stations (80 km aprox). There is no service for mobile phones. Perfect to "disconnect" from the world. There are a lot of trekking paths, falls, gorges. Highly recommended!

This road stretches from Conway to Lincoln and is very pretty with forests, rivers and mountains on either side. There are plenty of places to stop along the way to see the scenery, picnic, camp or take trails int the woods.

This is a very scenic roadway. It's a great ride up and down the lower mountains. You get to see the areas that only campers and hikers get to enjoy. It's at its best during the change of seasons, as the leaves turn color.

This is an absolutely beautiful scenic drive and a "must see" if you are visiting New Hampshire. There are multiple breathtaking overlooks, stunning vistas, beautiful waterfalls, rivers and streams, and some of the best hiking anywhere on the east coast. Campsites and picnic areas are also available. It's great for kids of all ages and adults who appreciate the natural... More
