Kancamagus Highway, New Hampshire

(Scenic Drives of America Feature)

Quite simply, one of the most scenic roads in the United States.

Photo along the Kancamagus Highway, NH The Kancamagus Highway, which cuts through the heart of the White Muntains in New Hampshire, is a truly remarkable road; along its 35-mile stretch are towering mountains, quaint covered bridges, crashing waterfalls, and in the fall, breathtaking foliage. In fact, in early October, the Kancamagus Highway can resemble Boston at rush hour; your best bet during that time is to see it on a weekday or early or late in the day.

Photo along the Kancamagus Highway, NH Along the Kancamagus Highway, (which is technically NH Route 112), there are plenty of pulloffs for people looking to hike, ski, snowshoe, or take photographs. Between its western end in Lincoln and its eastern end in Conway, some highlights include, from west to east, Greeley Ponds, Sabbaday Falls, Rocky Gorge, and the Albany Covered Bridge. But no matter what your destination, you can't go wrong on this scenic byway.
