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.

plenty of access to trails and waterfalls as well as what you see right from the road. Bear Mountain road is a great side trip if you are on a motorcycle.

Beautiful, long winding road up and through the mountains. There are lots of places where you can pull over and view the mountaintop scenery - many of these pull-offs have a covered viewing area with educational materials. Also, there are many trails along the way with varying lengths/difficulties.

Really fun thing to do is to stop in Lincoln at Abbey Cellar's Fine Wine, Cheeses, and Specialty Food Shop to pick up a nice bottle of wine and interesting cheese (we bought a black truffle cheese and whole grain mustard seed ale cheese). Next door is a shop where you can buy cigars. Stock up in Lincoln and then pull off at one of the vistas on the Kanc to enjoy your cheese/dessert items at one of the picnic tables overlooking gorgeous mountain views.

We drove from North Conway over the highway, the day was clear and at the summit (2800 feet) look- out the views were awesome.

We love to go here every time we are in the N.Conway area. The river running along side the road, over the rocks is Breath Taking. The Mountains all around you is unbelievable. Don't Miss this One.
