Route
“A must stop! Drive along the Kancamagus Hwy for the breathtaking scenic views, the MANY hikes, waterfalls or moose sightings at dusk. This 32 mile long highway starts in Conway, just 1/2 mile from the cottage and ends in Lincoln, NH, another great town to explore. Along the way, you will see captivating views of the White Mountains, hiking trails, some historic landmarks and more. There is NO gas or restaurants along the 30+ mile drive so be prepared!”

Scenic Lookout
“The Kancamagus is a great scenic road through the White Mountains with plenty of hiking trails. One of the first sight seeings on this road is the Lower Falls. No Hiking required for this spot (plenty of other opportunities though further up the road). Just a great place to enjoy the view of the falls and put your feet in the water. ”

Natural Feature
“You can see the beautiful Swift River as you pull off of Abenaki Way onto the Kancamangus Highway. However, we don't recommend swimming at that specific point of entry. We recommend our renters drive a few miles up the highway and swim at Lower Falls, where there is parking and a beach.”
