We wondered why there was a group of people at the side of the road. It was a moose! Really hasn't expected to see one at the side of the road mid afternoon! A perfect addition to a beautiful drive.

I had not been on this highway in almost 30 years, but within 5 minutes I knew that the memories were crystal clear for a reason. This can be an 1 1/2 hour drive or all day. So many sights, so many things to do...More

We had a beautiful June day to drive the Kancamagus. We stopped often to take pictures. I do have to say that I preferred the Green Mountains of Vermont to the White Mountains of New Hampshire.

Wonderful activity even on a rainy day! There are a number of easy hikes and the rangers at the historic sites were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Highly recommend!

We drove this highway more than I can count and each time, we found sights along the way that we missed the previous trip. This is definitely something you should do if you are in the area.

The Kancamagus Scenic Drive (and the White Mountain Trail) are well worth doing. The roads are two-lane, twisty and hilly, and you may meet folks walking or on bicycles, so it is not wise to try these in a larger motorhome. Take the time to...More

Not much to say except that it is the quickest path between Bartlett and Lincoln NH. There are several scenic areas that you can pull over and take a picture. The views are breathtaking on a clear day. Beware make sure you have at least...More

The Kanc offers beautiful scenery, wildlife and a fun drive! It's an absolute must do. Bring your bathing suit and go swimming along your route, stop for some amazing views, go hiking on the marked trails. Activities are never ending. Stop in at the Ranger...More

Wonderful views, winding highway! It’s especially beautiful in the fall! Beware of other drivers who aren’t paying attention to the road! Bring your camera & stop in designated areas for everyone’s safety!

Sunset is 7:14pm on the so plenty of time before it is dark. You've pretty much highlighted most of the places to stop with a view. But also have a look at Pemigewasset Overlook
