Daytrip along Kancamagus Highway | 7 Wonders of Fall
Yankee Plus Dec 2015
TABLE OF CONTENTS
It just may be the most scenic drive in New England, which is why you want to wake up early to explore it, because on crystal-clear October afternoons, this 34.5-mile stretch of Route 112 between Lincoln and Conway, New Hampshire, can feature a caravan of SUVs and Airstreams. But the popularity of this paved mountain pass, which opened in 1959, is well understood. Up and up you go, to 2,860 feet, with a scattering of lookouts where you can pull over to take in views of areas like Mad River Notch–where you can take out a picnic to linger, just a little bit longer, above the foliage.
