Small lake was called Lilly Pond - on the Scenic drive across the Kancamagus Highway (#112) mountain road between Conway and Lincoln NH in the White Mountain National Forest. Saw spectacular New England Fall Foliage colors!

If you can, do this 34.5 mile Scenic Mountain Fall Foliage viewing drive once at the beginning of your Fall Foliage Vacation stay, and a 2nd time several days later, or near the end of your stay. You will be amazed at the difference in the Fall Foliage Colors you will see!  We have discovered driving the Kancamagus Highway the opposite direction the second time gives an even different viewing perspective. The Lincoln Woods Visitor Center has helpful information on the area - located 5 miles east of Lincoln, NH.

TipHighly recommend taking the Kancamangus Hwy Scenic Drive! - take plenty of film or digital memory cards!  This link goes to the USDA Forest Service White Mountain National Forest web site with much information on the park and New England fall foliage color updates.

We most recently stayed at a Condo in a Interval International (II) Timeshare Resort on the South edge of the White Mountain area overlooking huge Lake Winnipesaukee - near town of Laconia, NH. Beautiful lake and area. (Will have more detailed "Review" of "The Summit at Four Seasons" II vacation time share exchange and Vacation Rental Resort on an upcoming New Hampshire Vacation Condo Rentals page.)

Read candid user reviews and see 7 Laconia, NH Hotels & Resorts ranked by popularity with comparison pricing at: Compare prices and read what other travelers have to say about the Summit Resort + other hotels and Inns in Laconia, New Hampshire - Hotels & Vacation Condo Rentals for great Mountain Fall Foliage vacations.

We were a few miles south of Squam Lake where the movie "On Golden Pond" was filmed. 

TipRecommend a Squam Lake boat tour -- you will probably see several Loons plus House & area where movie was filmed. -- you will also hear interesting history of how movie was made in 1981. (Some pictures & Info on this boat tour later on an upcoming New Hampshire Fall Foliage Vacations Page.)

Castle in the Clouds - New Hampshire Fall Foliage Vacations
Castle in the Clouds - built in 1913
Moultonboro, New Hampshire

Beautiful drive up to top of "mountain" -- 5,500 Acre country estate built in 1913 by shoe mogul Thomas Plant. Brought in over 1,100 Italian stonecutters and masons to build the castle. Has modern conveniences not typically found in homes built at time of construction. Many interesting Antiques. Also is called the Lucknow Estate. Guided Tours are available.

Panoramic views in every direction including great views of Lake Winnipesaukee which covers 72 square miles and has 183 miles of shoreline.  Well landscaped grounds in middle of forest with waterfall near entry road on way up to parking area at Stables where there was a restaurant and a small museum. Then Trolly cars take you on up to the top of the mountain to the Castle in the Clouds attraction and grounds. There are 45 miles of scenic hiking trails on the property which also can be accessed from from a parking area with an information Kiosk off of Hwy 171 just east of the Castle in the Clouds entrance.

This "Official" Castle in the Clouds Web Site has many pictures and interesting facts about how the Castle was built and it's history plus hiking trail Info and current open dates and times. Also a map link. The site is managed by the Castle Preservation Society. This link goes to some pages on another web site with additional interesting history and more pictures from The Castle in the Clouds. It is a very photogenic place!

New at Mountain Fall Foliage Vacations Site See one of our Site Viewers Picture and comments on The Castle in the Clouds on this new "Our Favorite Attraction on Lake Winnipesaukee" Page. From Lois from Texas. You can even make your own comments about the Castle in the Clouds -- or comment on their comments about it.

Castle Springs water bottling Company has a bottling plant down near the exit area. (More Info on this Great Castle in the Clouds Attraction + several other "Must See" New England Fall Foliage Attractions on our New Hampshire Attraction "Must See's" page - link below.)

TipGreat for a "Must See" stop on a New England Fall Foliage Vacation Day Trip circling Lake Winnipesaukee. The Castle is on the east side of the lake. Allow about 2 hours to view.

Tips Tip -- Walk the easy and very scenic 4-5 minute walk back down from the Castle to the Restaurant, Gift Shop, and Parking area Vs taking the Trolly back down from the Castle. There are some great views and photo opportunities looking back up at the Castle!



From top of Mt Washington above clouds



From top of Mt Washington above clouds - 6,288 feet
Mt Washington Auto Road
- Near Gorham, NH

Very narrow road with no fences along straight down mountain drops along edges. Meeting cars on road was a "white knuckle" experience.

Tip The drive up was worth it! -- beautiful Mountain Fall Foliage views! Interesting working Cog Rail Road where can see old small special cog engine come noisily "chugging" up steep incline at top - You can ride up or down on Cog Train or in Vans. (Pictures and Info on Mt Washington Cog RR Train & Auto Road + other NH attractions on our New Hampshire Attraction "Must See's" page.)

Tip Buy the narritive CD or tape which describes what you are driving by and has several marked stopping and viewing points along the way -- makes the drive more interesting, and even has some driving tips for the narrow mountain road.

First recorded ascent was in 1942 - Indians wouldn't climb "sacred peak." Average temp at top is 26.9 degrees. Mt. Washington snowfall averages 195 inches annually.

There is a big weather research station, several TV and Radio antennas, a museum, and of course a snack and gift ship on top.  6,288 ft. elevation.  Gusts above 100 mph are recorded every month of year.  Average wind speed at top is 35 MPH so plan on a bad hair day.

This link goes to a comprehensive web site on everything about Mount Washington with much information and more pictures on the Mt. Washington Auto Road and the Cog Railway in the New Hampshire White Mountains.

See more Info and pictures of the Mount Washington Hotel on our New Hampshire Mt Washington Hotel page plus a Mt Washington Resort Hotel link with pictures and additional area New England Fall Foliage Vacation and rental information.

Tip Self guided tours are available - even though the Mount Washington Hotel is a "Working Hotel." The Resort Hotel is close to Mount Washington mountain, above, so it is short drive over - definately worth the drive!

New at Mountain Fall Foliage Vacations Site See an interior Hotel Picture, plus the comments of one of our Site Viewers - Jerry in Oregon - about how the Mt Washington Resort Hotel is her and her husband's favorite Historic Attraction in New Hampshire.

The Flume - New England Attraction

Franconia Notch State Park and The Flume Gorge - North 6 miles from North Woodstock, NH on I-93 where road turns into Franconia Notch Parkway for approximately 8 miles. Hwy 3 crosses through the area.

Between tall Kinsman and Franconia mountain ranges - spectacular scenery. Flume Gorge is in this area, along with what is left of the "Old Man of the Mountain" rock formation above Profile Lake. Many scenic viewing spots. In The Flume Gorge, vertical walls on sides rise up to as much as 90 feet above the Gorge floor.
