Owner description: Highway 112 runs from Center Conway to North Woodstock, just south of Franconia Notch. Passing through the White Mountain National Forest, it is considered one of the most scenic highways in the U.S. and offers a number of interesting stopping off points.

The Kancamagus Highway is an east-west scenic byway crossing the state of New Hampshire, a little-above mid-point. For almost 40 miles in White Mountain National Forest, you live the towns and facilities behind as you wind your way up and over the mountain pass. There are numerous stops along the way to observe beautiful distant views, rocky gorges and a couple of waterfalls. Trails are available in varying lengths also to get a feel for nature. Absolutely a must to see in NH.

A beautiful hour ride on this highway. Stopped at scenic overlooks and covered bridge. Watched the kayakers on the Saco River. Wonderful ride well worth it

My husband and I love taking a yearly trip across the "Kanc" to view the beautiful colors of Fall. It's a relaxing and adventurous 40 mile trip from Conway to Lincoln. When there we love to stop at the Woodstock Inn in Woodstock for some delicious lunch and great service.
