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

“The drive on New Hampshire’s Kancamagus Highway would be beautiful at any time of the year, but colorful fall foliage provides spectacular autumn views. We stopped at each of the scenic overlooks, Sabbaday Falls, Russell Colbath House, Rocky Gorge, Lower Falls, and the covered bridge. Each was beautiful and the subject of our many photos. The places that wowed us into spending the most time were Lower Falls and Rocky Gorge. We recommend planning to spend a whole day on the Kanc—give yourself time to linger at your favorite stops.”

Sabbaday Falls A gravel path approximately 1/4 mile, handicapped accessible, leads to an amazing 45' waterfall and 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.

Hiker Responsibility Code: With knowledge and gear. Become self-reliant by learning about the terrain, conditions, local weather and your equipment before you start. To turn back. Weather changes quickly in the mountains. Fatigue and unexpected conditions can also affect your hike. Know your limitations and when to postpone your hike. The mountains will be there another day.

To stay together. When you start as a group, hike as a group, end as a group. Pace your hike to the slowest person. To leave your plans. Tell someone where you are going, the trails you’re hiking, when you’ll return and your emergency plans.

For emergencies. Even if you are headed out for just an hour, an injury, severe weather or a wrong turn could become life threatening. Don’t assume you’ll be rescued; know how to rescue yourself.

Hike Safe–it’s your responsibility. The Hiker Responsibility Code was developed, and is endorsed by, the White Mountain National Forest and New Hampshire Fish & Game.

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 each 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 guides. 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°F; the low, -47°F (without a wind chill!). With an average July temperature of 49°F, summer visitors can get a respite from warmer temperatures in the valleys. Plan to bring a jacket, sturdy shoes and your camera! Discover more at visitwhitemountains.com

N A T I O N A L F O R E S T “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. For additional information, call or write any of the offices below.

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.

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. Recreation passes are available at area businesses, USFS Information Centers, and the White Mountains Visitors Center. For those holding the America the Beautiful Pass, Access Pass, and Senior Pass, parking is free. Please note: prices are subject to change.

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. 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

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

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

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”. 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.
