Owner description: Highway 112, or the Kanc, runs from Center Conway to North Woodstock, just south of Franconia Notch. Passing through the White Mountain National Forest, it is considered one of the most scenic highways in the U.S. and offers a number of interesting stopping off points.

So many photo ops along this route. I wish I could take home the sound of that babbling brook! So soothing.

My wife and I did the Kanc on the second day of our trip to the White Mountains. The Fall foliage were in their peak and the views were amazing. We both agreed though that the drive going towards Mount Washington seemed a bit better because there were more places to stop and admire the beauty of the mountains. A wonderful drive nonetheless!

Great leaf peeper drive! Wonderful vistas and rustic streams in the valleys. Allow time to appreciate the views.

We decided to take this drive since it was rated as the best fall folliage drive in the New England states. We were not dissapointed. Beautiful views all along the way with enough overlooks to take photos. We loved the lake view overlook. The Lost River gift shop was the most reasonable tourist one I have been to, and on top of the prices they had 20% off which they do this time of year. We ended up with a deer handcarved real wood very nice framed with nice wood, a laser art bear, a deer wall hanging, a beautiful big colorful tile we hung on the wall above our stove along with several other items. You can also take a gorge hike from the store but it was $17.00 per adult which we thought a little high. We will be back another year for this gorgeous fall leaf drive. First week of October was perfect, but I think it depends on the weather and could be a week earlier, so check sites to find the best time to go.

Highly recommend driving the Kanc, views are spectacular. Covered bridge is a bit boring. Sugar Hill overlook is a must-see.
