  • Kancamagus Hwy Fall Foliage colors - In White Mountains Between Conway and Lincoln, NH --(often misspelled and mis-pronounced with an extra "g" & "n" as Kangamangus Highway or Kangumangus Hiway.)

The Lincoln Woods Visitor Center is about 5 miles east of Lincoln and has much helpful Info on the area.
