Logo   Kancamagus Highway NH Travel Guide
Its 33-mile (53-km) length exhibits some of the finest scenery in New Hampshire's White Mountains, including the view from the 2855-foot (870-meter) Kancamagus Pass.



NH Route 112 between Conway and Lincoln NH is known as the Kancamagus Highway (map).

If you have your own vehicle, the drive is a must! This is White Mountains forest beauty in its purest form.

Almost the entire length of the road is within the boundaries of the White Mountains National Forest, and is therefore protected from any development more civilized than a picnic area or a campground (there are six along the road).

Hiking trails depart from the Highway, with small parking areas at the trailheads.
