93 The White Mountains have long been known for their natural splendor, outdoor recreation and high quality attractions. There comes a point on your journey when you leave the hustle and bustle behind, and your imagination is stirred by the anticipation of coming to an area so full of relaxation and fun.

From Holderness north to Lincoln, and west to the Connecticut River, this region is a gateway to the White Mountains, which come into view as I-93 eases into Plymouth. This is a bustling university town where, depending on the season, you can take in collegiate football, a play or concert at the Silver Center for the Arts or explore the shops and restaurants on Main Street.

where a wooden boardwalk takes you through glacial caves created 50,000 years ago when the continental glacier crawled south through New Hampshire. As it thawed, huge blocks of granite cracked and fell and came to rest in a tumble of nooks and caverns. Above ground is a maple sugar shack, a rock garden, fallow deer, and ducks who enjoy handouts from visitors.

Just a few miles west of Plymouth, on Route 25, is the town of Rumney and Polar Caves Park. This is a great attraction for children and their parents,

Leaving Plymouth and continuing north on I-93, sweeping views of the Sandwich Mountain Range and the first soaring peaks come into view.

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. 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 resort community. The bustling center of life here is Town Square, home to a mix of restaurants, shops, an ice skating rink and an adventure center, and everything is within walking distance. 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. The Reys also wrote and illustrated The Stars, one of the definitive books on astronomy—they found the Waterville Valley skies dark enough that constellations were clearly visible for their work. The town has taken steps to preserve that dark and special sky and if stargazing is your passion, bring your telescope. As you journey through Campton, Thornton and Waterville Valley, you are in the White Mountain National Forest and in these communities you can find a network of trails for all abilities, which offer beautiful vistas of this corner of the White Mountains. Back on I-93, it’s a short ride to the communities of Lincoln and Woodstock. The White Mountains entrance to the kancamagus highway | charyl reardon

panoramic view from welch-dickey trail | ellen edersheim

Visitor Center is between the two towns, just off Exit 32 of Interstate 93, and it’s a great place to get information and advice from the knowledgeable staff at the information desk. There are also displays about the region, brochures, maps, restrooms, and a gift shop. The White Mountains Trail begins here, a 100-mile National Scenic Byway loop road filled with mountain vistas, attractions, railroads, picturesque notches and lively communities along the way. Available for purchase or download is the White Mountains Audio Tour—stop by the White Mountains Visitor Center to purchase. But before you set out, plan to spend some time visiting Lincoln and Woodstock.

Lincoln is home to six attractions: Alpine Adventures, Clark’s Trading Post, The Flume Gorge, Loon Mountain, Hobo Railroad and the Whale’s Tale Water Park. Since 1928, the Clark family has welcomed visitors to enjoy their unique Clark’s Trading Post and theme park, which includes trained bear shows, displays of Americana and a steam engine train ride, which ventures into the world of The Wolfman.

hen these two towns were first settled in the mid-1800s, they were outposts at the edge of a mountain wilderness. The long-ago industries of logging and papermaking are gone and the area is now a thriving, four-season destination.

of the state’s largest ski areas. Once the snow melts, the resort becomes a summer adventure center, featuring an Aerial Forest adventure park, a zipline, climbing walls, mountain biking and hiking trails. Its Gondola Skyride is the longest in New Hampshire—check out the glacial caves and views at the top of the mountain. For three days every September, Loon Mountain, like the mythical village of Brigadoon, transforms itself into a wee bit of Scotland, hosting the annual New Hampshire Highland Games. From its headwaters high in the Pemigewasset Wilderness, the East Branch of the Pemigewasset River flows through Lincoln and Woodstock into the Pemigewasset River. The Hobo Railroad follows the river along an historic rail line that was built in 1846, connecting the towns with the outside world. Today, The Hobo is a favorite excursion for families, who enjoy the scenic ride, the colorful conductors and, of course, a Hobo Picnic Lunch.

Located on Main Street in Lincoln, Alpine Adventures offers high-flying fun for altitude enthusiasts at the “Thrillsville” Aerial Fun Park featuring the BigAirBag stunt jump as well as year-round Zipline adventures and one-of-a-kind “Safari” Off-Road tours.

On a hot summer’s day, Whale’s Tale Waterpark is a favorite place to cool off. Voted “Best in Class Water Park in America” by Aquatics International Magazine, Whale’s Tale has thrilling slides and plunges, a wave pool, and lazy and relaxing river drifting. Don’t miss the excitement of Shipwreck Island and Poseidon’s Voyage, too.

From Main Street in Lincoln, you’ll see two of the ski slopes which are part of Loon Mountain, one

Ruggedly spectacular, Franconia Notch offers visitors a close encounter with spellbinding White Mountain scenery. Travel on I-93 slows as the highway transforms into a two-lane parkway snaking its way between the soaring flanks of the Franconia and Kinsman Mountain Ranges. Outdoor enthusiasts have been drawn to the wonders of Franconia Notch for generations; biking, walking, hiking, climbing and motoring through its nine mile length. In Franconia Notch dwell several of New Hampshire’s most well-known attractions, namely The

Flume Gorge, Cannon Mountain Aerial Tramway, The Basin and Profile and Echo Lakes. Until its heartrending collapse

in 2003, the Granite State’s iconic symbol, the Old Man of the Mountain, kept a vigilant watch over Franconia Notch. The southern end of the Notch includes The Flume Gorge, a great place to cool off on a hot summer’s day. Visitors travel back in geologic time as they stroll between towering granite walls on sturdy boardwalks through the deep, narrow chasm with the Flume Brook thundering below. The Flume Gorge was discovered in 1808 by Aunt Jess Guernsey, who, at 93, was looking for a good place to fish. Follow in her footsteps as you walk through two covered bridges, past a natural woodland pool, cascading waterfalls, huge glacial boulders and a kids’ favorite, the Wolf’s Den Cave.

of the Earth, Devil’s Kitchen and the Lemon Squeezer, and be awed by the beauty of Paradise Falls and New Hampshire’s only underground waterfall, the Falls of Proserpine. At the top of the gorge are lovely vistas of the Osceola Mountains, and a butterfly garden. As you continue west through Kinsman Notch, a section of the Appalachian Trail crosses the road, on its way from Stone Mountain, Georgia to Mount Katahdin in Maine. Because here the trail is relatively close to North Woodstock, many throughhikers make their way into town for mail and supplies. Stop off at the trailhead and learn about the remarkable story of the crash of a B-18 bomber on nearby Mount Waternomee in 1942 and how an entire community rushed up the mountainside to save the crew members. On the other side of the trailhead is the Beaver Pond, a favorite spot of many longtime visitors to the region. Beautiful at any time of year, it is especially so on spring nights when the peepers come

out, and in the fall when the colorful foliage seems to spill down the steep slopes of Kinsman Notch and into the water. Toward the end of Route 112, the road follows the flow of the Wild Ammonoosuc River, where you can see folks panning for gold! It’s not exactly the California Gold Rush, and as far as we know nobody has struck it rich yet, but they do find enough flecks to keep them coming back for more! Hey, you never know … At the end of the road, US Route 302 is before you. Turn left and head to Woodsville or right to head toward Bath and points east. The center of Bath is postcard-pretty, with a little town common surrounded by a church, post office, a covered bridge and a historic shop. The Brick Store is recognized as being America’s oldest continuously operated general store. You can spend some time at the store, where the offerings from its smokehouse include smoked summer sausage and hunks of Rat Trap wheel cheese. Grab a sandwich and sit on the porch for a perfect summer moment.

Western White Mountains

A Brief Guide to New Hampshire’s Craft Beer Scene New Hampshire boasts a long history of brewing beer that dates all the way back to 1635, so we’re pretty good at it! Some of the best breweries in New England can be found right here in the White Mountains. Our artisanal breweries, microbreweries and brew pubs produce a diverse array of handcrafted beer with an emphasis on brewing techniques and flavor. So what’s the difference among the three types? A brewery is an establishment in which the brewing of beer or other malt liquors takes place. A microbrewery focuses on exotic or high quality beer, producing less than 15,000 barrels annually. A brew pub brews its own beer for sale on and off the premises and is typically combined with a restaurant. Each offers its own unique experience so drop in and raise a pint. Cheers! A number of exceptional craft brewers call the White Mountains region home. These include: Woodstock Inn Brewery (see listing p. 36) n North Woodstock n www.woodstockinnnh.com Tuckerman Brewing Company n Conway n www.tuckermanbrewing.com Schilling Beer Company n Littleton n www.schillingbeer.com Moat Mountain Brewing n North Conway n www.moatmountain.com

93 Above the notches soar the highest mountains in all of New Hampshire—the great peaks of the Presidential Range. From hiking and mountain biking to whitewater rafting and fine dining, the northern White Mountains has a lot to offer. It truly is a land of scenic splendor.

In other parts of America they are called “passes,” “gaps” or “divides,” but here in New Hampshire, we call the narrow openings between mountains “notches,” because they resemble a V, as if a giant ax notched the mountain landscape. This is the area above the notches—Franconia Notch, Crawford Notch and Pinkham Notch—home to small towns full of charm and character, and outdoor recreation opportunities for all interests: hiking, fishing, even veranda-sitting at a grand hotel or cozy inn.

Just above Franconia Notch is its namesake town of Franconia, a picturesque village with mountain views just off I-93. Stay on the highway and it will take you to Littleton, recently named by Fodor’s Travel as having one of America’s Best Main Streets, complete with a covered footbridge over the Ammonoosuc River and, at Chutter’s Store, the world’s longest candy counter, stretching 112 feet! Be sure to visit the Pollyanna statue in front of the town library, as Littleton was home to Eleanor H. Porter, who wrote Pollyanna, and the

The communities of Franconia, Easton, Sugar Hill, Bethlehem, Bretton Woods, Littleton, and Lisbon, join together each June to celebrate the annual blossoming of the lupine. The celebration of the fields of lupine is a regional event that recognizes the beauty of the flowers and their majestic mountain backdrops.

east of the Rocky Mountains and here you will find another community suitable for a pedestrian tour. Antique shops, restaurants and even a lovely old theatre, the Colonial, will provide a pleasant afternoon of discovery.

Bretton Woods is the home of the Omni Mount Washington Resort, where delegates from around the world gathered for the World Monetary Conference in 1944 to help Europe and other countries rebuild after World War II. Today, the distinctive red-roofed hotel is still inviting to guests from around the world and its veranda is ideal for enjoying a cup of coffee and the mountain views.

A wonderful side trip from the Twin Mountain area is north on Route 3 and Route 115 to the towns of Jefferson and Whitefield. These are lovely scenic roads, with views of the Presidential, Pilot and Pliny mountain ranges, and areas where you’re likely to see a moose. mount washington cog railway | fan photo: joe greene

Across the street at the Ski Area, hotel guests and the public can enjoy the mountain views from the Bretton Woods Canopy Tour, or go mountain biking or enjoy a scenic chairlift ride. Bretton Woods is also home to the Mount Washington Cog Railway, which has been climbing the three miles to the summit of its namesake mountain since 1869. A steam train runs daily, usually in the morning, while a fleet of bio-diesel locomotives are the workhorses of the railway. Just a few miles east, on Route 302, you’ll come to another notch—Crawford. Along the way, keep a look out for everyone’s favorite local denizen, the moose, as well as other wildlife. However, up on the rock ledge to the left, what appears to be a pachyderm charging out of the woods is really a local landmark, the Elephant’s Head—and he’s not going anywhere!

Along US Route 2 in Jefferson are two favorite children’s theme parks, Fort Jefferson Fun Park (formerly Six Gun City) and Santa’s Village. At Fort Jefferson Fun Park, The Brady family has hosted generations of visitors at their Wild West theme park, where children witness a talking horse, race go-karts and cool off at the Fort Splash Water Park. Just a little further west on Route 2 is Santa’s Village, one of the region’s most popular family theme parks. This is the summer home of the Jolly Old Elf himself and you know he loves all things Christmas. Children can share their wish list with him, visit his reindeer, decorate gingerbread

For a bird’s eye view of this part of New Hampshire, drive north on Route 3 from Whitefield to Weeks State Park, at the top of Mount Prospect in Lancaster. This was the summer home of U.S. Sen. John Wingate Weeks, a native son whose love of the White Mountains inspired him to save it. The landmark Weeks Act, passed by Congress in 1911, laid the groundwork for the creation of all our National Forests, including the White Mountains National Forest, which forever preserves the defining beauty of the Granite State.

built lovely and handsome summer cottages from which they entertained and passed the season. Some early adventurers founded the Randolph Mountain Club in 1852 and today its members maintain a 100-mile network of trails, with cabins and shelters located in the Presidential and Crescent mountain ranges. Up and over the hill, Route 2 brings you down into Gorham. When the Atlantic and St. Lawrence Railroad came to town in the 1850s, the town became a tourist destination and it remains so today. Interesting shops, fabulous restaurants

More than 150 years ago, the Rev. Thomas Starr King was a frequent visitor to Jefferson because he thought the views were the best of any place in the White Mountains. He penned The White Hills: Their Legends, Landscapes and Poetry in 1859 and Mount Starr King was named for him. (There is also a mountain named for him in Yosemite National Park.)

orham first became known as a tourist destination way back in the 1850s, when the St. Lawrence and Atlantic Railroad came to town. Today, Gorham attracts visitors from around the world, and the original railroad station (on the left, below) houses the Gorham Historical Society & Railroad Museum.

and nearby recreation opportunities make it a great place to plan a stay. Route 16 south from Gorham leads to Pinkham Notch and the Mount Washington Auto Road, then further south to the Mount Washington Valley. At the intersection of Routes 2 and 16, a turn to the north takes you to Berlin. The “City that Trees Built,” as it had long been known, has closed the chapter on its tradition of making paper, but that legacy lives on. For a definitive look at the city’s rich history, plan a visit to the Northern Forest Heritage Park, where a logging camp has been re-created and during the summer, guided boat tours are offered on the mighty Androscoggin River. Nearby, outdoor enthusiasts, especially ATV riders, are discovering the miles of trails available to them at the newest state park in New Hampshire, Jericho Mountain. The Androscoggin River begins its journey to the Atlantic Ocean in Errol and on its way to Berlin, there is a stretch of Class IV rapids, the only one in all of New Hampshire.

93 Mount Washington looms in the distance and the surrounding mountains embrace what locals have long called “The Valley.” The beauty of the area has always drawn poets, painters and adventurers and that tradition continues today.

Early visitors to the Mount Washington Valley were captivated and inspired by the mountain landscape just as today’s visitors, too, are drawn by the scenery and the adventure to what the locals simply call “The Valley”. And don’t forget the shopping (tax free, of course!). With the surrounding mountains and rivers, the region drew artists like Asher B. Durand and Benjamin Champney, who first brought the beauty of the valley to the wider world, including King

Edward VII of England, who bought a dozen White Mountain paintings to hang in Windsor Castle. On your approach to Conway via Route 16 from the south, you will come to Tamworth, a historic town founded in 1766. Within it, are the villages of Chocorua, named for the looming mountain that dominates the landscape, and Wonalancet. Dog lovers will particularly appreciate the role of Wonalancet in history, for it is here that the Chinook sled dogs were developed and raised. This hardy breed was used by Admiral Byrd on his


eastern White Mountains

Antarctic expeditions, and later by the Army in search-and-rescue missions. The village of Tamworth is charming and if you enjoy summer theatre, plan to take in a

town over 200 years ago and the last two generations were country doctors. The father and son together provided 99 years of continuous medical care to the town of Tamworth, and their family heritage lives on at this working farm, where visitors can churn butter, pet the animals or enjoy the scenic trails. Back on Route 16, the bald knob of Mount Chocorua rises higher and, just around a bend in the road, is beautifully reflected in Chocorua Lake. Go ahead and stop to take a picture—Mount Chocorua is one of the most photographed mountains in the country and, with its triangular summit, is locally known as the “Matterhorn of the White Mountains.” With Mount Chocorua behind you, the road takes you into Conway, the eastern hub of the White Mountains. Conway is made up of six villages: Conway, Center Conway, North Conway, Redstone, Kearsarge and part of Intervale. Each has its own character and

performance at The Barnstormers Theatre. Founded in 1931 by Francis Cleveland, the son of President Grover Cleveland, the theatre is the only one in the country still producing 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

For many grown-ups who come to The Valley, their first visit to the White Mountains was likely to one of the theme parks, including Story Land, located in Glen, and they return now with their children, and even grandchildren, to visit the land where Cinderella, Mother Goose and the beloved characters in the books that define our childhood come to life. Joining Story Land’s popular group of rides this summer is a new coaster. The coaster, named “Roar-O-Saurus” is the only wooden roller coaster of its kind in northern New England. This unique wooden coaster will provide children of all ages the experience and memory of riding their first “big” coaster with Mom or Dad, or vice versa. Further north on Route 16, is the land of Pinkham

Crawford Notch … … packs a whole lot into a short distance: beauty, history, triumph and tragedy, and an elephant! The AMC Highland Center Lodge sits grandly at the top of the Notch near an original Victorian train station. Train tracks pierce Mt. Willard and cling to its precipitous sides, affording passengers on the Conway Scenic Railroad an unforgettable journey. Reflected in Saco Lake, is a granite cliff face that resembles a giant elephant’s head emerging from the dark pine forest. Two towering roadside waterfalls, the Flume Cascade and Silver Cascade, thunder down through deep, rocky gorges. In August of 1826, the Willey Family, pioneers who made Crawford Notch their home, became the center of a tragedy that is still chilling today. Following an extended drought, torrential rains poured down on dry mountainsides causing massive landslides. The entire family of seven, and two hired men, ran for their lives from their small cabin only to be wiped out by tons of earth, trees and boulders. Ironically, the slide, parted by a rocky outcropping, spared the Willey’s home. Had the frightened settlers remained inside, all would have survived. Their heartbreaking tale lives on and the foundation of their tiny home can still be seen at the eastern end of Crawford Notch.

At the summit, you’ll discover Mount Washington State Park and the famed Mount Washington Observatory, which recorded the highest wind speed recorded by man on the surface of the planet (232 mph in 1934!) and see what accommodations were like for the earliest visitors to the summit at the Tip-Top House. If your journey takes you west on US Route 302, you will head into Bartlett, on your way to Crawford Notch. Both the town and the attitash alpine slide | charyl reardon 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. In the summer, make time to catch a chair to the summit and relax in the sun and enjoy the view. Close your eyes and take in the scent of the evergreens and the sounds of the valley below, including the train whistle of the Conway Scenic Railroad passing through town.

If you are looking to get your pulse pounding, strap into the Nor’easter Mountain Coaster. Enjoy the scenery—while you can—because this ride is going to twist, turn, rise and fall like a roller coaster back to the base of the mountain. Set off from Attitash heading west on Route 302, through the village of Bartlett and the tiny town Hart’s Location, one of two places in New Hampshire where residents turn out at midnight every four years to vote in the “First in the Nation” presidential primary. Where the road narrows and the mountains soar on steep slopes is Crawford Notch. Here is where New Hampshire’s legendary mountain hospitality was born, when families like

the Crawfords and the Rosebrooks welcomed travelers through the lonely wilderness with warm beds, hot dinners and friendly conversation. On summer afternoons, watch the tracks that hug the mountainsides for the Notch Train; feed the ducks at Willey Pond and have a picnic at the Willey House site in Crawford Notch State Park. When Saco Lake and Crawford Depot train station come into view, keep your eyes peeled for a rock that, from the west, looks just like an elephant. The Appalachian Mountain Club’s Highland Center is the base camp for the other side of Mount Washington. Stretch your legs on several easy trails behind the lodge and when you see Red Bench, take in the view of Mount Washington and realize that visitors just like you have been awed by this exact view for well over a century!

In Littleton, another place where you can park your car and wander away an afternoon going in and out of shops, you’ll find Chutters, which lays claim to having the longest candy counter in the entire world! If antiquing is your passion, pay a visit to neighboring Bethlehem, which has several antique shops. If you want to take a step back in time, head for North Woodstock, where Fadden’s General Store has been a Main Street fixture for 116 years, or Bath, where you can sit on the porch and nibble on a piece of cheese or fabulous fudge at The Brick Store. If you are looking for great local cheese, be sure to stop at Harman’s Cheese and Country Store in Sugar Hill. A bonus to spending time shopping, no matter where you are, is that you’re surrounded by great restaurants and coffee shops, so be sure to grab a bite to eat … so you don’t drop while you shop!

between them. By the 1690s, Kancamagus’ tribes had scattered, heading to northern New Hampshire and beyond, into Canada.

KANCAMAGUS HIGHWAY • WHITE MOUNTAINS Established 1959

There’s plenty of lore and legend along the route, including the fascinating tale of Thomas Colbath. One day in 1891, he left the homestead he shared with his wife, Ruth, telling her he’d be back in a little while. Days turned into weeks and weeks into years and he did not return, and every night for nearly 40 years, Ruth left a light in a window so he could see his way back to their home.

Until 1959, few had seen the beauty that lies in the mountainous area between Lincoln and Conway, but today, the spectacular Kancamagus Highway draws hundreds of thousands of travelers each year on a ribbon of roadway carved through the mountain wilderness. The highway is a federally designated National Scenic Byway. Departing Lincoln, the road climbs nearly 3,000 feet, crossing the flank of Mount Kancamagus before it continues winding its way to the Mount Washington Valley. Along the way are campgrounds, picnic areas, waterfalls, a covered bridge, trails and scenic vistas that give travelers an appreciation of a vast wilderness that remains in New Hampshire, largely unchanged for hundreds of years. The highway takes its name to honor the chief of the Native Penacook Confederacy. Chief Kancamagus worked hard to keep peace between his people and the early settlers, but was consistently challenged by the English which resulted in wars

She died in 1930 and three years later, Thomas returned to the now-dark home. The RussellColbath House is the last 19th century homestead in the area and worth a stop to see it. In the sumSAWYER mer, it’s a U.S. Forest Service information center.ROCK

Pronouncing “Kancamagus” can take some practice. Although there is only one ‘n’ in the name, many give in to the urge to put in another one to make it less of a tongue-twister. The secret to correct pronunciation is to SAWYER POND with ‘Paugus,’ or ‘Saugus.’ remember it rhymes SCENIC AREA

Or sound like a local and just call it “the Kanc.”

93 Clear lakes, gentle foothills and the haunting cry of loons make the South Region a summer playground, just a stoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s throw from the White Mountains.

Just to the south of the White Mountains is a region of clear lakes, with beaches, quaint towns and several attractions worth seeing. You may be familiar with Squam Lake, where the movie On Golden Pond was filmed in 1980; Henry Fonda and Katherine Hepburn, who both starred in the film, received Oscars for their performances. Other attractions that may capture your interest include: exploring World War II history at the Wright Museum in Wolfeboro, the fine arts and crafts of the Granite State at the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen galleries, or tax-free shopping at the Tanger Outlet Center in Tilton.

If you enjoy history, plan to stop at the New Hampshire Historical Society in Concord. The Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s museum boasts collections pertaining to all facets of life and culture in the state, spanning centuries, and including art and artifacts of the White Mountains. A stroll through the museum provides a meaningful foundation to your visit, realizing that you are among millions who have been captivated by the mountain landscape. With a good foundation of Granite State history under your belt, hop back on I-93 and about 20 minutes later, off Exit 20, is the Tanger Outlet Center, featuring scores of brand-name factory

stores. Whatever your bargains, remember, you score twice because shopping in New Hampshire is tax-free! At Exit 23 off Interstate 93 is NH Route 104 and if you turn west, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find Ruggles Mine in Grafton. Discovered in 1803, it became the first commercial mica mine in the country, providing the material to manufacture lamp chimneys and stove windows and later, everything from cosmetics to electrical insulators. The commercial side of the mine closed long ago and since 1963, it has been open as a public attraction and treasure trove. This is a great place for children to explore and mine their own mica and other treasures, and the panoramic view from the summit alone is well worth the drive up Isinglass Mountain. Back on I-93, if you head east off Exit 23, Route 104 will bring you to Meredith, on the shore of Lake Winnipesaukee, the Granite Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s liquid gem. Plan to enjoy the lake and the shore towns aboard the M/S Mount Washington. History buffs

will want to head over to Wolfeboro for a visit to the Wright Museum of World War II History, while everyone will enjoy a few hours at the Squam Lakes Natural Science Center in Holderness, which also offers cruises around the beautiful Squam Lake. In the summer, the Lakes Region embodies rest and relaxation. On a typical morning, you might find yourself in Canterbury, watching a gardening demonstration at the Canterbury Shaker Village, considered the most authentic surviving Shaker community site in the country.

The organization is a founding member of the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen, which today has galleries across the state, promoting and

In the afternoon, let your car follow the contour of the lake, winding through little towns and hamlets bearing names like Mirror Lake and Melvin Village. Plan an excursion aboard the Winnipesaukee Scenic Railroad, which offers a beautiful and nostalgic ride between Meredith and Weirs Beach. For more than a century, vacationers have taken this ride on their way to steamers that would carry them to other parts of the lake in the high summer season. A summer night on the shore of one of our many lakes is made all the more special when the loons start calling. For 35 years, the Loon Preservation Committee has watched over these magnificent birds, ensuring their health and viability in New Hampshire.

Hiker Responsibility Code You are responsible for yourself, so be prepared: 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. To share the hiker code with others.

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.

Mt. Washington mt. washington | ellen edersheim

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, who come from all over the world, to revel in the top-of-the-world views of New England, New York, Canada—even the Atlantic Ocean! It was here at the Mount Washington Observatory, in 1934, that the highest wind speed ever recorded on Earth was clocked at 231 mph! The first footpath to the summit was carved out by Ethan Allen Crawford in 1819; today the Crawford Path is the

oldest continually maintained footpath in the country. The Mt. Washington Carriage Road opened to horses and wagons in 1861, becoming the nation’s first manmade tourist attraction; later, its name changed to reflect the times. Today, visitors can drive up the 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 of year. The record high temperature is 72°; the record 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!

saco lake | robert kozlow

Fishing The clear, cold water of the White Mountains region is ideal for trout fishing, and Brook, Brown, and Rainbow trout are abundant. Notable rivers and streams include the Swift River along the Kancamagus Highway, East and West Branches of the Pemigewasset, and the Saco, Ellis, Wildcat, and Ammonoosuc Rivers. Prefer lakes? Cast your line at Moore Reservoir on the Connecticut River, Big and Little Squam, Stinson, and Echo Lake, and Profile Lake (fly fishing only). The ponds, brooks and rivers of the White Mountain National Forest are also available to fishermen with a network of highways and foot trails offering roadside and backcountry access. Fishing licenses are available online at www.nhfishandgame.com and at more than 275 license agents throughout the state (most of whom are sporting goods dealers or provide services to sportsmen).

Please note: Wherever you hunt or fish, including the National Forest, a current New Hampshire fishing or hunting license is required for all residents and nonresidents age 16 and older. Minors under age 16 (resident and nonresidents) are not required to have a license to hunt or fish in NH, including archery. To hunt, minors must be accompanied by a licensed adult 18 years of age or older. They are required to purchase other permit types, such as bear, turkey, special deer and archery.

For resident license fees, contact the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department at 11 Hazen Drive, Concord, NH 03301 Tel. 603-271-3422; or visit online at www.wildlife.state.nh.us.

Wildlife Watching

kancamagus highway | rich macdowell photography

One of the most exciting things about spending time in the White Mountains is the possibility of seeing white-tailed deer, moose, fox, black bear, and other native animals. Certain areas of the White Mountain National Forest are excellent places for observing wildlife; contact the Ranger Stations (see page 114) for details. If you do see wildlife like moose or black bear on your explorations, be cautious, and never approach the animal. If you’re in your car and want to pull over to observe, do so carefully and remain in the car—remember: the animal is wild. Moose are especially unpredictable in their movements and when threatened may stand their ground or charge. More active at dusk and at night, they are difficult to see, so brake for moose—it could save your life. The state’s moose population has made a dramatic recovery since the early 1900’s, when unregulated hunting and loss of forest habitat to agriculture decimated the herd. Today, moose are found throughout the state, including the White Mountains region, and are often seen in swampy or wet areas near roads. Frequent sightings are reported along the Kancamagus Highway, in

Pinkham Notch, and along Rte. 26 in Dixville Notch. Moose tours are run from Gorham, Lincoln, and North Conway, as well as in the Great North Woods Region of the state. As a rule, bears stay away from people unless tempted by food. Black bears have keen hearing and a good sense of smell, and are aware of you long before you are aware of them. They can be scared away by loud noises. If you are camping, take the following precautions: Keep a clean camp. Don’t cook or eat inside your tent—the food odors linger and attract bears. n Put food and garbage in your car’s trunk. If that’s not possible, hang both at least ten feet off the ground. n Under no circumstances should you feed, tease, touch or disturb any bears. n n

New Hampshire Fish and Game Department carries the New Hampshire Wildlife Viewing Guide, a 96-page book by Judy K. Silverberg on 72 places in the state to watch wildlife. Contact Fish and Game, 11 Hazen Drive, Concord, NH 03301. 603-271-2461. www.wildlife.state.nh.us.

Covered bridges and waterfalls dot the White Mountains landscape and are real favorites with visitors and locals alike. With more than 100 waterfalls in the area there’s more than enough cascading water to satisfy the most devoted “falls spotter” or nature photographer.

White Mountain national forest

National forest the northern presidentials seen from mt. washington | robert kozlow

“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

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. All unattended vehicles parked on National Forest land must display a Recreation Pass where signed. There are several pass options: 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. Go here first to get your Recreation Pass

fall foliage 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.
