This drive was one of the reasons we rented a car on our vacation after coming back from our cruise out of Boston. The road follows the river much of the way where you can see it and pull out to stop at a few places. Many hiking trails along the way although I'm not a hiker. Some of the... More

I love picking a quiet spot along here and relaxing among the natural beauty. In all my years visiting this area (6) I wish I had taken more time to be up here. My friend and I had a great time doing a mini road trip along the highway. It's especially popular in summer with tourists and summer camp counselors.

Best place to view fall color and beautiful white mountain range. The road is very nice and there are multiple scenic view points where you can stop by.

We rented a motorcycle and toured the White mountains. We had a wonderful trip and were not disappointed. We are from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Canada, and have the Cabot Trail to enjoy traveling around. The White mountains and the Kancamagus Hwy are very nice, but still cannot out do the Cabot Trail.

An absolute "must-do" for motorcycle enthusiasts like ourselves. Lots of great scenic pull-offs to get awesome pics of the surrounding mountains, valleys and streams.

I did this on a motorcycle so my comments come from that perspective. The scenery is beautiful, several places to stop and see some beautiful views. The road is not in great condition, lots of bumps, small heaves, cracks in the pavement. Be careful doing the speed limit cranked over in a corner. I was probably traveling at 5 MPH... More

i think this road would be at its scenic best during the fall foliage. when I visited, the fall foliage wasn't at its peak yet and some or most parts of the road looked pretty good but not out outstandingly scenic. int he night, this road is pitch dark with no lights anywhere near. but the curvy scenic road makes...

Big fan of meandering curvy mountain roads, and this highway did not disappoint. There are overlooks too--in order to capture pics. Several moose signs but I didn't see any. There are also cool waterfalls.

To sum it up....... • Too many trees blocked what were previous scenic views. • Too many SLOW drivers!!! I'm talking like 35 MPH! It was ridiculous! If you want to see it badly and are an extremely patient person, enjoy! P.S. Pepere (pronounced PEP-AYE is a french grandfather)
