“A must!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014

Great trip! If you have only one day to do it, just pick one trail and then stop at vista points.
If you are a lucky one having more than one day, do not miss any trail!
Don't forget water and food, you'll not find where to buy along Kancamagus Highway.
At the end of each day, shake your clothes and check your body for ticks!!!

WE took this route on our way to another attraction, and it was fun! The drive was slow, but it was ncie we could stop along the way and walk around and view the scenic parts of the area.

“Did not live up to my expectations”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2014

I was told that this road was really beautiful. The road itself was in disrepair in many places although it did seem like public works was doing something about it. After having seen the views from the Cog train, this was a letdown. Also, 30+ miles without any port o potties to be seen is frustrating for people that "need to go" a lot.

“Under Construction”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2014

We had a lovely ride. The only "bump" in the road was the very long light we had to wait for on the drive back from Lincoln at 10 p.m. There were no other cars on the road, but we had to sit for the one-lane bridge for about five minutes.
