We've driven this road many times. Beautiful views any time of the year. Driving can be dangerous when there is snow/ice on the roads. Several scenic overlooks as well as hiking trail heads. Stop at the National Forest building on the Conway side for info and cheap parking passes.

Wow, wow, wow.. the leaves were in their peak, the day was sunny. It was perfect. Stopped at all of the pull outs. We were in awe of the scenery. Took my breath away. Well worth the drive from Acadia.

If you get yourself to the White Mountains, and get yourself to the White Mountains! Don't miss the 38 mile journey over the Kancamagus Highway. No matter which side you start from. Lincoln, or Conway. There's plenty to do at the other end. There spectacular views and many photo ops along the way. Pull off areas at many locations. The... More

The roadway was originally the routes of logging railroads when the forest of the White Mountains were being destroyed. It is now a mountain highway through the White Mountain National Forest. Lot's of opportunities for vistas, hike, and in season picnics.

Had a beautiful drive and a beautiful scenery of the mountains. I would recommend going right in the middle of fall when you can get to appreciate the different colours of the trees.

This is a great ride and much better in the fall. I have driven this pass dozens of times in summer and fall. Lots of scenic overlooks and rest areas with picnic tables.

We just missed the peak of the foliage. I imagine this place would've been REALLY stunning in October but we didn't regret the drive one bit because it was still lovely - and it was a rainy, cold day! Even with the mist hanging over the mountains, views were beautiful, especially at the designated viewing areas. The Lower Falls stop... More

we stopped at a couple of the scenic places on the way home as we drove the Kangamangus. It was a rainy and cold day but we still had fun stopping and taking some pics along the way!

This is it! True beauty during the fall. We could not keep our eyes from all the beautiful trees and rivers. There is so much going on that we stopped all the time.
