“Very nice drive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

Just a really nice road to drive on. Lots of trail heads to stop at along the way that vary in length and difficulty. Not the fastest way to cut across NH but definitely the most scenic.

“Winding Scenic drive through the forested mountains”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Lovely Fall foliage even in the rain, and some good pull- offs along the Swift River Flume Gorge off the Franconian Notch worth the walk

“A pleasant drive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

a nice drive if you are going from North Conway north towards Canada.Spead limit is very low which makes it a leisurely drive.Remember you cannot just pullup and stop at the side of the road unless you have a park pass, but you can stop at certain senic pullovers
