The Kancamagus Highway

White Mountain National Forest, New Hampshire

Add this 34-mile stretch of Route 112 to your New England leaf-peeping itinerary. Showcasing the vivid colors from Conway to Lincoln, NH, the Kancamagus Highway meanders beside the Swift and Pemigewasset rivers. Drivers will have a hard time keeping their eyes on the road while surrounded by such beauty, so there are scenic overlooks and hiking trails along the way to let them soak it all in. The White Mountains certainly don’t appear so white in the fall, when shades of red, orange and yellow burn bright amid the evergreens.
