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.

This two-lane road takes you through wonderfully scenic country. We had a too-exciting drive, tho, when a moose came barreling out of the woods, and collided with our car, near Loon Mountain! Thankfully we were fine, and with a new windshield, and more repairs once we got home, we were fine. Better luck to y'all!

A great drive. If you do go, stop, enjoy the sights and let faster drivers by so you can enjoy the scenery more.

I love the beautiful views of mountain peaks, valleys, lakes, and those loooong water falls thundering down the Presidential Ridge.It's a beautiful drive but make pleanty of time for it. The drive can be done in less than 2 hours or maybe less but I would NOT recommend taking less than a day to take in this Splendor of Fall. Recommended viewing time: Check Yankee.com/foliage for best foliage viewing times. People living in New England begin submitting their reports in September. DO: make reservations for motels or inns at least 1 month in advance. They have added a few more Comfort Inns so even a week's notice "should get you a late room" but if you wait too long it'll cost you. There are no amenities along the Kang (restrooms and comfort stations are provided) but no gas, food, or places to sleep between Lincoln, NH, and North Conway. I promise you, if you've never driven it, you'll be in heaven. TAKE: a camera, cell phone and charger, pack a little picnic lunch, and a map of area's "natural" attractions

The Kancamagus Highway is a wonderful drive. The roads are fun to cruise on and the views are gorgeous. There are a lot of great places to pull over and enjoy the view or park and take a nice hike. A must do if you are in the area, even if you only spend a short amount of time.
