Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: White Mountains Visitor Centre, 200 Kancamagus Highway, Woodstock, NH 03262

Welcome to Kancamagus Highway! This tour takes under an hour if you just drive, but you’ll have the best experience if you stop at the hiking trails or overlooks to appreciate the scenery.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Otter Rocks Day Use Area, Kancamagus Hwy, Conway, NH 03818, USA

Take this opportunity to use the bathroom or grab a photo with the National Forest sign. If you choose to picnic, swim, or sunbathe, take advantage of those large, flat rocks you’ll see. Otters love to sunbathe on rocks like these – and so can you!

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: White Mountains, White Mountains, New Hampshire

The scenic White Mountains draw over a quarter of a million visitors each year. People from all over the world come to see their beauty! So as we travel this majestic domain, you may wonder how the mountains came to be. Well let's rewind time by about 65 million years, to when dinosaurs walked the earth.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Hancock Overlook, NH Rte. 112 Kancamagus Hwy, Lincoln, NH

Turn into the Hancock Overlook ahead.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Mount Osceola, Mt Osceola, Livermore, NH 03251, USA

Osceola was a famous tribal leader… but not of the Pennacook! He was actually part Seminole Creek and part Scottish. * Ok, so why is this New Hampshire mountain named for someone from Florida? * The short answer is… because he’s a hero! Osceola fought off colonial encroachment and resisted the government’s attempts to strip away his tribal lands.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Mount Washington, Mount Washington, New Hampshire

The most famous of the White Mountains, Mount Washington, stands an astonishing 6,288 feet high! That’s the highest peak in the Northeast.

Mount Washington is part of a line of summits called The Presidential Range, whose mountains are named after US Presidents and other renowned Americans.

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Pemigewasset Overlook, Kancamagus Hwy Along Kancamagus Scenic Byway, Lincoln, NH

Rivers like the Pemigewasset, Swift, and Saco flow south from the White Mountains and travel 65 miles, merging with the Winnipesaukee and then the Merrimack before finally emptying into the Atlantic. This juncture is currently home to the town of Franklin, New Hampshire.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: CL Graham Wangan Overlook, Kancamagus Hwy, Bartlett, NH 03812, USA

This overlook is also called “The Wangan Ground” or “meeting place” of the Native Americans who lived and hunted in this area of New Hampshire. That’s because the Pennacook didn’t live in teepees, but rather wangans. These circular homes could be assembled and disassembled as the tribes migrated. We’ll learn a bit more about them later on in the tour.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Sabbaday Falls, Conway, NH

The falls feature a series of picturesque cascades in a narrow flume. For the best views (and photos!) try standing on the bridges or observation decks. The sparkling pools below range from pale green to deep emerald.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Russell-Colbath House, Kancamagus Hwy, Albany, NH 03818, USA

Stop At: Mount Chocorua, Chocorua, Tamworth, NH

Mount Chocorua is named for Chief Chocorua. According to legend, Chocorua lived here when colonizers first landed in America. He had a good relationship with the settlers, especially the Campbell family.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Rocky Gorge Scenic Area, Kancamagus Hwy, Albany, NH 03818, USA

In July 1942, 24-year-old daredevil Dorothy Sparks and her friends ventured to the White Mountains for some outdoor fun. But what began as an enjoyable outing soon turned sour when Dorothy’s friends noticed she went missing. They retraced their steps up to Rocky Gorge where they had last seen her. But though they searched everywhere, they couldn’t find Dorothy. They started to worry that she had fallen into the waterfall and been swept away.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Albany Covered Bridge, Passaconaway Rd, Albany, NH 03818

Having a bridge here was crucial for the settlers of the 1800s. It was their link to a wider world. The bridge provided access from the harsh, undeveloped interior to the small towns here. Settlers would occasionally make the arduous trip in order to stock up on supplies, sell products, catch up on the news of the world, and of course… a little local gossip!

Duration: 10 minutes
