This is one of my favorite rides in NH. There is so much to see, and it is beautiful anytime of year. All the different spots where you can stop off and hike are amazing.

This is not a ride to take if you are in a hurry to get from point A to point B. There will be plenty of slow drivers ahead of you taking in the sites. It's best enjoyed on a clear day, when you can see the beautiful White Mountains and stop at the pull offs to take in the... More

If you're riding a motorcycle, this is a must ride! The roads are good! The scenery is very good! The stops are awesome! The only downfall is the ride is not long enough (lol). We have rode this highway in both directions and I would recommend to do the same and pick which you enjoy the most. I enjoyed both... More

It was a nice drive - beautiful scenery - Went through yesterday, we did stop along the way to take a picture - I was a little nervous before we left because I didn't know what to expect especially because it's winter time - but the ride was great. There really isn't anything to stop at other then scenic pullovers... More

A definite must see! The views are beautiful and the roads were clear of snow and ice shortly after the conclusion of the snow storm. It was a perfect winter wonderland!

We live here and we still enjoy the drive up on the motorcycle. For visitors to the area, it's a nice ru Dr for all with plenty of hiking trails, the river, picnic spots, etc.

This is a beautiful summer and fall road! So scenic with numerous vistas and photo opportunities. Winter is very scary especially during snow storms.

Cruised the Kanc in the Miata. Then up through Franconia Notch. Beautiful day and as it was early got to enjoy the twists and turns of the road. The scenery is fantastic and the rise and drop in elevation is exhilarating in my little red Miata with a cute blonde in the passenger seat. Way to go.

We look forward to this drive. With the grand views, burbling. River and impressive stones it's easy to be absorbed by God's love.

Like the outdoors? This is the place. Every stop (and there are a lot) offers something different. Great views, great hikes, great swimming even a slippery rock water slide in a stream! Took a day to drive through but some could make it a week.
