Fall 2017 visit

Hoping to surprise my husband with a relatively brief 4-day trip to the White Mountains. I found some great Air b&b places in the Jackson area, and am lucky enough to have off weekdays so I'm thinking Sunday 10/8/17-Wednesday 10/11/17. From what I've looked at, the weather that time of year is decent (though I prefer cold), and the foliage will be peak or near peak. Is Jackson a good base area to do some day hikes as well as drive the Mt. Washington auto road? I also figure going on weekdays during the busy fall season will have less crowds than weekends. Thanks in advance for any advice.

I agree that Jackson is a great spot. Be sure to check out Jackson Falls in town. Ask for directions if you can't find them.

We were there at that time once, in Jackson. As the 2 others stated, jackpot! Mt Wash Auto Road is easily accessible. Covered Bridge B&B has a cute gift shop actually on a covered bridge over a creek. Jackson Falls..so fun.

Good timing- I would advise booking early in Jackson, NH or anywhere since Columbus Day Oct 9 is a Holiday and many lodgings have restricted length of stay or increased price-so book early that is a popular weekend!

Take a day to drive the Kanc Highway as well- lots of trails and incredible views! Enjoy- fall is glorious in New England!
