Scenic Drives

Sometimes the best way to see the beauty of New Hampshire is by taking a scenic drive. In a car you can cover more ground and enjoy the variety of scenery from mountain peaks, to sweeping vistas and tree-lined back roads. Here’s a couple of local favorites:

Five Mile Circuit Drive (Jackson) from the covered bridge, go through Jackson Village on 16A. Take Rt 16B at the schoolhouse. The road that goes up the hill past Christmas Farm Inn to Whitney’s Inn (2mi), where a sharp turn is made to the left. It is about 1.6 mi to Gill Bridge over the Wildcat River, where another left turn is made taking you to Jackson Falls back to Jackson Village. There are great views all along this drive. 6 miles.


Crawford Notch at the intersection of Rt 16 & 302 in Glen, follow Rt 302 past Attitash Ski area and Bartlett Village. The road continues through lovely mountain scenery, past the Crawford Notch Park and the site of the famous ‘‘Willey Slide.’’ There will be a steep grade, which will take you past two long, narrow waterfalls to the height of the land and the site of Crawford Notch Depot, which now houses a small museum maintained by the Appalachian Mtn. Club. (well worth the stop).

A few miles beyond are the grand Mt. Washington Hotel, site of the famed 1944 Monetary Conference. Here one can retrace one’s way or continue on to Rt2 and east to Gorham, returning via Pinkham Notch and Rt 16.

Also, just beyond the Mt Washington Auto Road on Rt302 is the entrance road (not maintained in the winter) to the Cog Railroad which ascends the west side of Mt Washington. This can easily be a ½ or an all-day trip. Mileage will vary with route.


The Kancamagus Highway is a 34.5 mile scenic drive along NH’s Rt. 112 in Northern New Hampshire that is well known as one of the best Fall Foliage viewing areas in the country. The Kancamagus Highway is now designated an American Scenic Byway for its rich history, aesthetic beauty and culture.

The Kancamagus Scenic Byway takes you through a path cut through the White Mountain National Forest with breathtaking views of the White Mountains, the Swift River, Sabbaday Falls, Lower Falls and Rocky Gorge. The Kanc takes you to an elevation of just under 3,000 feet at its highest point at Kancamagus Pass on the flank of Mt. Kancamagus near Lincoln, NH.

Scenic Train Rides

Conway Scenic Railroad

Enjoy some of the most dramatic natural scenery in the East as you travel through spectacular Crawford Notch – past sheer bluffs cliffs, steep ravines, cascading brooks and streams, panoramic mountain vistas, across Frankenstein Trestle and Willey Brook Bridge – en route to Crawford or Fabyan stations.

On the Notch Train, you’ll travel on what was once the Maine Central Railroad’s famed Mountain Division line on tracks that were laid in the 1870s.

Included in the excursion is a layover at Crawford Station, across from Saco Lake (a small pond from which the mighty Saco River originates), and adjacent to the AMC’s Highland Center. Passengers are encouraged to get off the train, stretch their legs, and explore their beautiful surroundings.

There is a cash only snack bar on the train, and Coach passengers are welcome to bring their own picnic lunches. You can eat on the train, or there are picnic tables next to Crawford Station.

Plan to board the train in North Conway or at The Attitash Station located at Attitash Mountain Village behind The Hospitality Building & Matty B’s Mountainside Cafe. Attitash Mountain Village is on Route 302 just 2.6 miles east of Bartlett village, opposite the road from the Attitash Mountain Resort ski area.

There are no provisions at the Attitash Station to accommodate guests who are mobility impaired.  Attitash passengers must be physically able to climb stairs and walk independently through cars to their designated seats.  Passengers who need boarding assistance should plan to board at the North Conway station.

Guests with prepaid tickets for Conway Scenic Railroad’s Mountaineer must be present on the Attitash Station loading platform no later than 12:10 pm to board the train. On days when guests have pre-purchased tickets on Mountaineer (to Crawford Notch) and have selected the Attitash Whistle Stop boarding option, the train will make a brief stop to load guests. On the return from Crawford Notch, the Mountaineer will pause at the Attitash Station at approximately 3:30pm for ticketed guests to depart from the train. Departing guests should listen for on-board announcements regarding this stop and should consult with the train crew regarding the correct door to exit the train.

Attitash Station boarding tickets must be purchased at least two hours prior to departure on the day of travel or the train will not make the Attitash stop. Passengers who have purchased Attitash Station tickets will receive their paper tickets from the train crew at the time of boarding at the Attitash Station.

Waterfalls

No where in New England are waterfalls as abundant and accessible for viewing.

Sabbaday Falls: There are three drops in the falls, pretty pools and a pothole formed by the swirling waters and sand. You can’t swim here, but it‘s a great spot for picnics. Directions: Take the Kancamagus Highway from Conway. The Sabbaday Falls Picnic Area is about 3.5 miles west of where Bear Notch Road joins the Kanc. The falls are a short 0.33-mile hike in.


Glen Ellis Falls: The Ellis River plunges 64 feet to the basin below in a torrent of white water here. Make sure to stop and read the signs that describe the geology and history of the area. Directions: The turn-off to the falls is 0.7 miles south of Pinkham Notch on Route 16. This is also the parking area for the Glen Boulder and Wildcat Ridge Trails. A tunnel takes you to the other side of the highway where you turn right to reach the falls. It’s a relatively easy 0.2-mile walk to the falls.


Crystal Cascade: This is a two-tiered spectacular fall, with a dramatic 60-foot wall of water, followed by a 20-foot plunge, ending with the river making a 90 degree turn at the bottom. Directions: Park at the AMC Pinkham Notch Camp and take the path on the left of the Trading Post — the Tuckerman Ravine Trail. The falls are a 0.3-mile walk up.


Thompson Falls: This is actually a series of falls along Thompson Brook at Wildcat Ski Area. The views to Mount Washington from the highest ledge are worth the trip. Directions: Take Route 16 to Wildcat Ski Area. To reach the falls, take the “Way of Wildcat” Nature Trail from the ski area’s parking lot. At the far end of the trail loop, you’ll find the path to the falls. It’s a 0.7-mile easy trek to the falls.


Arethusa Falls: Measuring in at about 176 feet, these are the highest single falls in New Hampshire. A bonus here is Bemis Brook Falls, Fawn Pool and Coliseum Falls can all be visited at the same time. Directions: Take Route 302 from North Conway toward Bretton Woods and look for Crawford Notch State Park entrance. Turn onto a paved road just beyond the park and park on the short side road below the railroad tracks. The trail starts to the left of the private road above the railroad tracks and it’s about 1.3 miles to the falls (2 miles if you take the trail to Bemis Brook Falls, Coliseum Falls and Fawn Pool).


Flume Cascade and Silver Cascade: These falls are easily viewable from the car, but you can get close for a better look. Directions: On Route 302, just below Crawford Notch Depot.


Ripley Falls and Kendron Flume: An easy hike with swimming holes at the top of the falls and pools upstream. It’s not safe, however, to climb the face of the falls. Directions: The Arethusa-Ripley Falls trail is off Route 302 at the old Wiley House station.


Jackson Falls: These are one of the popular watering holes for locals on a hot summer day. Easily accessible, and part of the federally-designated and protected wild and scenic Wildcat River, they offer wonderful pools and small falls to cool off under. A few picnic tables nearby offer the perfect spot for a picnic lunch, dinner or cocktail. Directions: Take Carter Notch Road about 3/10 mile from Route 16A in Jackson.


Diana’s Baths: The water supply for the area is located above this, so no access is allowed above, but this series of small falls, and pools offers the perfect place to cool off. You’ll hike about ½ mile in, following a well-marked trail to find them. Directions: Access the trailhead from a parking area located on West Side Road, about a half-mile beyond the point where West Side Road turns toward Conway. Be aware: The popularity of this site has led to parking problems along West Side Road, and parking is no longer permitted along the roadside outside the trailhead parking area. If the parking area is full, it’s best to go elsewhere and save this small hike for another day.
