The Perfect Fall Highway - Kancamagus Hwy, New Hampshire

Take a stunning drive to discover the fall foliage.

By: Anaïs N. + Save to a List

I have been to New England a couple of times but never during Fall. I was blown away by the beauty of the landscapes at this time of the year. It is really something that everyone should experience at least once in their lifetime. I recommend the Kancamagus highway in New Hampshire! There are a lot of view points and hikes to do that will bring you to some incredible waterfalls and orange/red forests. The drive itself is fantastic with the fall foliage.

All along the Kancamagus highway, there are many scenic points. The Albany covered bridge brings you back in 1858, Sabbaday falls fills you with wonder, after those 2 stops I suggest you to park your car each time you see a sign. All the lookouts are worth it and shows you how wonderful it is to be in this area at this time of the year.
