The Weeks Act helped to create the White Mountain National Forest. Weeks State Park is the summer home of Mr. Weeks. Home sits on top of Mt Prospect. Home is great example of the old summer homes that the wealthy owned. Stone fire tower offers great views of the surrounding countryside and the Presidential White Mountain Range. Property has many... More

It's a gorgeous house - stone and wood with a matching fire station. IT's way up on the top of a hill. We discovered that as senior NH residents, we got a free tour (we left a donation anyway). The downstairs has rooms that were bedrooms but are now showcases for a great collection of birds. There's a short video... More

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.
