We were going to hike up top but it was getting close to sunset. So we decided to drive up. Wow some amazing views and once you get to the tower you have even better views. Really cool place to check out if you are in the area!

Great place to walk in all seasons. Additionally a nice drive in summer. The views of the north country of NH and eastern Northeast Kingdom are some of the best in the region.

Accessible by car on the fire road except for winter. The short 45 min hike is easy going and provides 360 great views of Mt Washington and surrounding areas. The pictured fire tower is open to the public except during winter.

It was worth the climb on the single lane road. John Wingate Weeks was a visionary and I enjoyed becoming acquainted with a man I'd never heard of-- who meant so much to our parks system and, I quote "Weeks is best known for his efforts at establishing the eastern national forest system. In the early 1900s all the forest... More

The Weeks road is just as narrow as most of Mt Washington but with trees and guard rails. If you do not the drive up Weeks you will not like the drive up Mt Washington.

Gorgeous, panoramic views! Short 1-1/2 mile drive brings you to a summit where you can enjoy incredible views from the tower. Peaceful, 10 minute walking trails circle the old estate. Would love to visit again in the fall to enjoy the fall foliage.

Great local history lesson and a great vista. Nice museum for adults and children of the flora and fauna of the area. They also have a guided tour of the building.

Worth the time if staying in the area for a drive or hike up the road to the top for some great views. Not much to do up there besides climb the fire tower or visit the house. Very friendly staff. Be careful on your drive up/down: Drive slow! Narrow road, tight turns and look out for other cars and... More

We, six shipmates from the USS John W Weeks, met at the park to donate ship memorabilia and a check to the museum. http://www.greatnorthwoods.org/weeks/ It's a beautiful park on MT Prospect with commanding views of the countryside, especially from atop the old fire tower. They are in the process of renovating the museum. One can drive up the mostly one... More
