On Route 25 a few miles west of Plymouth is the town of Rumney and Polar Caves Park, a great family attraction. Wooden boardwalks lead you through caves created 50,000 years ago when the continental glacier crawled south through New Hampshire. Above ground is a maple sugar shack, a rock garden, fallow deer, ducks (who do enjoy handouts from visitors) and the new Polar Ascent and Climbing Wall.

Swing off the Interstate at Exit 29 and spend some time exploring the sights along Route 49, a scenic road that winds through Campton and Thornton, before it ends in Waterville Valley.

Campton is located in the foothills of the Sandwich Mountain Range and comprises the villages of Blair, Campton Hollow, Lower Campton, and West Campton. The town is home to two covered bridges, including Blair Bridge, the second longest covered bridge in New Hampshire. Gear up and “Paddle the Pemi” with Ski Fanatics outdoor fun center.

CHARYL REARDON

Thornton is a small town nestled in the Pemigewasset River Valley. There are plenty of opportunities for outdoor recreation including hiking, swimming, and paddling. Hit the links at Owl’s Nest Golf Club or take in the fine views and

scenic areas while hiking the Welch-Dickey Trail.

out of the way places in Campton and Thornton you might want to know about. Bastin’s Pool on Thornton Gore Road (Rte. 175) in Thornton is a great spot to swim when summer turns up the heat.

First settled in the 1760s, Waterville adopted its full name, Waterville Valley, in 1967. This town at the end of the road is embraced by a circle of mountains, which has made it a friendly, inviting, and self-contained year-round resort community. The bustling center of life here is Town Square, home to a mix of restaurants, shops, an ice skating rink and the Waterville Valley Adventure Center, and everything is within walking distance. Mount Tecumseh is the site of the Waterville Valley Resort, one of the largest ski areas in New Hampshire. At 4,003 feet in height, Mt. Tecumseh is the lowest on the Appalachian Mountain Club list of “four-thousand footers”.

KEVIN HASZARD

Star light, star bright …

organized skiing began on Mount Tecumseh in the 1930s with construction of two Civilian Conservation Corps ski trails. One was abandoned, but the other was incorporated into Waterville Valley Ski Area.

The town was also the summer home to Hans and Margret Rey, who created the endearing and enduring character, Curious George. Today, you can visit the Curious George Cottage, which honors the passions of the Reys, including their love of history, nature, gardening, and adventure (thereycenter.org).

We’ll bet you didn’t know that Hans and Margret Rey also wrote and illustrated one of the definitive books on astronomy: The Stars. They found the Waterville Valley skies dark enough that constellations were clearly visible for their work, and the town has taken steps to preserve that dark and special sky. So if stargazing is your passion, you’ll want to bring your telescope!

we are the birthplace of Freestyle Skiing. Waterville Valley was the first ski area to offer freestyle instruction, in 1969. In 1970, Tom Corcoran and Doug Pfeiffer, of Skiing Magazine, organized the first National Open Championships of Freestyle Skiing at Waterville Valley.

Waterville hosts the “Black and Blue Trail Smashers” (also known as BBTS) Ski Club, one of the oldest ski clubs in the United States, founded in 1934.

“The next stop came straight out of Memory Lane. As a hayfever free kid, I recalled visiting Franconia Notch State Park, and especially the Flume Gorge. I was afraid that I would be disappointed going back to the magnificent natural attraction. But it was even more moving and dramatic than I recalled. We walked between granite walls and rushing, gushing glacial waters. At the end of the Ice Age, the ice melted and left the gorge the way you see it today: the kind of place where you feel lucky to be alive so that you can experience such beauty.”

ELLEN EDERSHEIM

Woodsville is a small town situated along the Connecticut River at the mouth of the Ammonoosuc River, across from Wells River, VT. In the early 1900s, the town boomed into an important railway junction and was known for its log drives. While no longer a log town, Woodsville still serves as the commercial center for the town of Haverhill and the surrounding communities, including several just to the west in Vermont. The Bath-Haverhill covered bridge is located one-quarter mile north of US Rte. 302 in Woodsville Village on NH Rte. 135. This is the oldest covered bridge still in use in the state

and is the only bridge to be erected at this site. It was built with a separate covered passageway for pedestrians—a characteristic that very few covered bridges have. The center of Bath is postcard-pretty, with a little town common surrounded by a church, post office, a covered bridge, and historic shop. The town is known for its historic architecture and two covered bridges, the Bath Bridge and Swiftwater Bridge. The Ammonoosuc Rail Trail passes through Bath, connecting the towns of Woodsville and Littleton.

The Bath-Haverhill covered bridge spans the Ammonoosuc River in Woodsville (left). The Bath Bridge (right) is New Hampshire’s longest covered bridge located entirely within the state. The bridge reopened to traffic in 2014 after a nearly 2 year, $3 million renovation.

Several of New Hampshire’s well known attractions—including the Basin, Profile and Echo Lakes, the New England Ski Museum, and Old Man of the Mountain Museum—call the Notch home. And until its collapse in 2003, the iconic Old Man of the Mountain kept a vigilant watch over Franconia Notch.

Berlin, astride the Androscoggin River, and known as the “City that Trees Built” was once the center of the paper-making industry. Today, Berlin offers visitors a chance to experience the outdoors by various means, including foot, pedal power, ATV, snowmobile, raft, guided moose tour and more.

At dusk, the Androscoggin River will be lit up with fires that appear to be floating on the water, but will actually burn on the historic boom piers dotting the river. The old piers are stacked with skids which, when set aflame, contrast dramatically with the dark waters.

3 things you’ve absolutely got to see in the Mount Washington Valley

Approaching Conway from the south on Rte. 16, you will come to Tamworth, a historic town founded in 1766 that encompasses the villages of Chocorua, named for the looming mountain that dominates the landscape, and Wonalancet. Dog lovers will appreciate the role of Wonalancet in history, for it is here that the Chinook¶ sled dog was developed and raised. This hardy breed was used by Admiral

Enjoy an easy walk to these beautiful rocky cascades on Lucy Brook off West Side Road in Bartlett.

Byrd on his Antarctic expeditions, and later by the Army in search-and-rescue missions.

Remick COUNTRY DOCTOR

Tamworth is a charming town, and if you enjoy summer theatre, plan to take in a performance at The Barnstormers,· the only theatre in the country that still produces a show a week in the old summer stock tradition.

For a taste of life in another era, pay a visit to the Remick Country Doctor Museum and Farm.¸ The Remick family settled in town over 200 years ago; the last two generations were country doctors, the father and son together providing 99 years of continuous medical care to the town of Tamworth. Their family heritage lives on at this working farm, where visitors can churn butter, pet the animals and enjoy the scenic trails. COU RTESY

A four season vacation wonderland North Conway, named to Lonely Planet’s “Best in the US” 2015 list, is made up of six villages: Conway, Center Conway, North Conway, Redstone, Kearsage and part of Intervale. Each has its own character and landscape. This area is a major rock climbing destination, particularly Cathedral and Whitehorse Ledges, and is home to the renowned International Mountain Climbing School. Shoppers will find over 100 big name factory outlet stores with everything from clothing to sporting goods to kitchen gadgets and jewelry.

The beautiful Victorian-era train station gives North Conway Village a sense of timelessness, further enhanced when the whistles blow to herald the arrival or departure of the trains. Spend hours browsing boutiques and one-of-a-kind stores along Main Street, or enjoy an event such as the Portland Symphony fireworks concert at Schouler Park. Experience the science of climate and weather at the Mount Washington Observatory Weather Discovery Center or take a hike and see a show at the 100-Acre Wood.

Soon though, we were on curving highway roads, with towering mountains, wildflower littered valleys, and beautiful vistas all around. If your family is into outdoor adventure travel, then few places fit the bill better than the Mt. Washington Valley area. Check out some of our favorites.”

Both the town and the Notch have fascinating histories and beautifully rugged mountain landscapes. Bartlett is home to Attitash, another White Mountains attraction that got its start as a ski resort, but has evolved into a year-round destination. STORY LAND

Scenic Overlooks When traveling along the Kanc, take time to stop at the scenic overlooks and enjoy the breathtaking mountain views and its history.

We came to New Hampshire to see fall foliage and found out we were a couple of weeks late. Our bed and breakfast host said the Kancamagus Highway was a must. We drove it late one evening after a trip to Stowe Vt. We liked it so much we came back the next day for a better look in daylight. We have been all over the States and Europe and this was truly a must see. We loved the color and the different views of the river plus an awesome covered bridge. Take the time and make this drive!

Sabbaday Falls A gravel path approximately 1/4 mile, handicapped accessible, leads to an amazing 45' waterfall / gorge. Rocky Gorge and Lower Falls Rocky Gorge is an easy walk along the Swift River to a footbridge that spans the river. Rocky Gorge has a 10' drop and rapids through the gorge. At Lower Falls, the river drops many feet over smooth granite rocks into a large pool. An ideal place to picnic, sun bathe, and swim.

MT. WASHINGTON

ROBERT KOZLOW

So what ,s it like up there anyway?

The distinctive peak of Mount Washington was first seen by explorers off the New Hampshire coast in 1524. Known to them as Agiocochook, Native Americans believed the summit to be the home of the Great Spirit. By foot, car or train, the 6,288' summit of Mount Washington is surprisingly accessible. Home to Mount Washington State Park, it is visited by more than 250,000 people per year from all over the world, to revel in the top-of-the-world views of New England, New York, Canada—even the Atlantic Ocean! The first footpath to the summit was carved out by Ethan Allen Crawford in 1819; today the Crawford Path is the

106 Mount Washington

oldest continually maintained footpath in the country. Now visitors can drive up the Mt. Washington Auto Road or leave the driving to the cheerful stage drivers. The Mount Washington Cog Railway, the world’s first mountain climbing railroad, opened in 1869. Mount Washington is the highest peak in the Northeast and its weather is variable at any time. The record high temperature is 72°; the low, -47° (without a wind chill!). With an average July temperature of 49°, summer visitors can get a respite from warmer temperatures in the valleys. Plan to bring a jacket, sturdy shoes and your camera!

NATIONAL FOREST

WHITE MOUNTAINS PANORAMA

“White Mountain National Forest: Land of Many Uses” read the signs that greet you. The National Forest is a managed and multiple-use forest, that provides areas for both recreation and human enjoyment, as well as wildlife habitat and harvesting of the forest, a renewable resource.

The 800,000-acre White

Mountain National Forest is a powerful presence in the White Mountains. Adjacent to or part of every village and town, the National Forest ensures that this region will remain largely undeveloped.

The White Mountain National Forest Recreation Pass The White Mountain National Forest is one of the most heavily used National Forests in the country. With that use comes a large workload to maintain the recreation facilities. As a result, a program is in place to collect fees for recreational use.

For additional information, call or write any of the offices below. White Mountain National Forest Headquarters 71 White Mountain Drive, Campton 03223 603-536-6100 • TTY 603-536-3665 This location now incorporates the Ammonoosuc and the Pemigewasset Ranger Stations.

All unattended vehicles parked on National Forest land must display a Recreation Pass where signed. Pass options include a $3 day pass available on site, a $20 single or a $25 household annual pass for those who use the Forest year-round, or a $5 pass good for 1 to 7 consecutive days (prices subject to change). Recreation passes are available at area businesses, USFS Information Centers, and the White Mountains Visitors Center. For those holding the America the Beautiful Pass, AccessPass, and Senior Pass, parking is free.

The clear, cold water of the White Mountains region is ideal for trout fishing, and Brook, Brown, and Rainbow trout are abundant. Fishing licenses available online at nhfishandgame.com and at more than 275 license agents throughout the state.

The ponds, lakes and rivers of the White Mountains are excellent photo subjects, and a favorite of many local photographers. Most of these waterscapes are easy to reach, but some do require a hike to reach. Tip: photograph lakes and ponds early in the morning or late afternoon at sunset when the water is calm.

Whether you are looking to swim, kayak, tube or just enjoy the tranquility and views, spending a day in one of the White Mountains rivers and ponds or cruising one of the lakes will leave you relaxed.

Notable rivers and streams include the Swift River along the Kancamagus Highway, the East and West branches of the Pemigewasset River, the Saco, Ellis, and Wildcat Rivers, and the Ammonoosuc River. Prefer lake fishing? Cast your line at Moore Reservoir on the Connecticut River, Big and Little Squam, Stinson, and Echo Lake; and Profile Lake (fly fishing only). 108 Lakes & Ponds

FLUME BRIDGE

Covered bridges are built using a support system that incorporates “trusses.” There are many kinds of trusses, but one of the most wellknown is …

whitemountainsnh

The Paddleford truss design was used extensively for most of the 19th century in covered bridges throughout Maine, Vermont, and New Hampshire.

… the Paddleford truss, named for its designer, 19th century New Hampshire millwright Peter Paddleford (who never patented the design).

Many of the bridges listed above feature the Paddleford Truss design, including the Bartlett Bridge in Bartlett, the Swift River Bridge in Conway, the Flume Bridge (above) in Lincoln, and the Honeymoon Bridge in Jackson. Covered Bridges 111

Nature’s Most Colorful Show Have you ever wondered why leaves change color? Very few places on earth have New Hampshire’s unique combination of fall weather, variety of tree species, and rugged terrain that makes for such spectacular “leaf peeping”. The cooler, shorter days of September cause the green chlorophyll to disappear from the leaves; and golds, browns and yellows become the prominent color of poplar, oak, beech and birch trees. Sugars are trapped in the leaves as a result of the warm days and cold nights; they bring out the reds and purples in sugar and red maple trees. No one can predict exactly when the foliage will peak—that’s up to Mother Nature— but as a rule, from the end of September thru the second week in October, you can expect peak color in the White Mountains. Sometimes, however, due to unusual weather conditions, the colors last thru October.
