One day Itineary White Mountain

Hello Everyone, I am too excited to see the fall colour in the White mountain national forest in the labor day weekend. Unfortunately, I am on a tight schedule and only one day to spend there.

We will be 5 young people, willing/able to do everything exciting.

Considering the time constraints, can anyone suggest me an itinerary with the must go places in here?

Also, I would love to know if there is any "must eat" place.

Thanks again. Any suggestion in greatly appreciated.

Just to clarify:

1) It's The White Mountains. I've never heard of White Mountain.

2) You've already missed Labor Day, unless you aare talking Labor Day 2018.

3) Labor Day is too earlier for fall foliage anywhere in New England.

If in fact you are looking at next year, what is the full scope of your itinerary? Where will you be beforehand and after? Will you be renting a car. Is Labor Day fixed or can that be adjusted? Fall foliage in the White Mountains is appx. week 4 of Sept to week 3 of Oct, give or take.

Knowing where you are coming from and where you are headed after would be helpful.

We will be coming from Weston (near Green Mountain and Finger Lakes). After visiting the park, me might head to Portland at night.

There is no "Park"... in the sense of other National Parks. It's a National Forest, served mostly by general-use roads and even major highways in places. Depending on how far you want to drive, from Weston, VT make your way to Lincoln, NH (sorry, can't help with that part of the route), then from Lincoln you could:

A-- Take Rt 3 north through Franconia Notch to US 302 at Twiin Mountain, then US 302 East through Crawford Notch and North Conway and on through the lakes-region of western Maine to Porttland, ME. -OR-

B. -- Take NH Rt 112, the Kancamagus Highway (narrow, winding), from Lincoln to NH Rt 16 in Conway and Rt 16 north to US 302 toward Portland. This is probably the more "classic" foliage-viewing route, butt also likely the busiest (read "slowest" over Columbus Day Weekend -- an extremely popular time for fall foliage sightseeing in that part of NH.

Thanks a lot MainerOnTheGo. Yes I realized only few days ago that we are travelling during the Columbus Day Weekend (we don't have this weekend in Texas). Your suggestion helps a lot.

Depending on your budget, the White Mountain Cider Company (Glen NH - on US 302) is a highlight for a great meal.
