Tour the Kancamagus Scenic Byway This Fall
New Hampshire is one of the premier places in the country for leaf-peeping in the fall, and it’s easy to see why. New Hampshire’s fall foliage season may be short, but it is gorgeous! One of the best places to see fall foliage in all its glory is the Kancamagus Scenic Byway. It’s one of the most popular fall drives in the country, and for a good reason. Everywhere you turn, vibrant displays of fall colors transform these already beautiful landscapes. They will leave you truly breathless.
The Kancamagus Scenic Byway is a relatively short 34.5-mile stretch of road between the New Hampshire towns of Lincoln and Conway. The eastern-most point in Conway is a little over an hour northeast of our Lakes Region Bed and Breakfast. From there, head west on Highway 112, the stretch known as the Kancamagus Scenic Byway, and enjoy one of the most breathtaking drives you’ve ever taken. This incredible road will take you to an elevation of 3,000 feet, passing through some of the most scenic parts of the White Mountains.
As you travel the Kancamagus Scenic Byway, you’ll pass the Swift River, Sabbaday Falls, Lower Falls, Rocky Gorge, and other top attractions. These waterfalls and viewpoints are absolutely worth stopping to see, and this is what can (and does) transform a relatively short drive into an all-day adventure! There’s also plenty of great hiking to enjoy along this stretch of road. We highly recommend you take at least one hike!
5 More Things to do in the Lakes Region This Fall
Last month, we wrote a blog about why fall is the best season to stay at our Bed and Breakfast. The colors, of course, have a lot to do with it! Aside from driving the stunning Kancamagus Scenic Byway, here are four more spectacular reasons to plan a fall getaway to the Lakes Region this year.
- There is nothing like going for an invigorating hike on a fall day! It’s what helps make autumn the best time to visit New Hampshire. In the White Mountains, there are ample opportunities to get out and feel that crisp air. Mount Major is a scenic and rocky trail with a great view of Lake Winnipesaukee. On the Artist Bluff Trail, you’ll get views of Echo Lake and the Franconia Notch Valley. The Franconia Ridge Loop will take you across three different mountain ranges!
- Fall is the best time to visit New Hampshire, as many of the waterfalls will be beautifully framed by the changing leaves. At places like Arethusa Falls, Sabbaday Falls, and Diana’s Baths, you’ll be able to walk to these natural wonders where cascading water is surrounded by the hues of the season.
- A ride up the scenic Cog Railway is a great way to experience the magic of the season. This historic ride thrills passengers from all over and was the first mountain-climbing cog railway in the world. As you ascend to Mt. Washington, you will marvel at the autumn colors all around you.
- The fall is the best time to visit New Hampshire because many farms and apple orchards provide you with an opportunity to go out and pick your own apples, as well as other produce. There’s nothing like a crisp and beautiful autumn day and soaking up the last of the warm sun. At Moulton Farm in Meredith, they have a garden center, a farm market, and a farm kitchen with a bakery filled with special treats of the season. The fall is a great time to visit because they offer a corn maze, which is always a fun autumn tradition.
