Fall Foliage in New Hampshire’s White Mountains – Many Ways to See the Color

We already outlined some interesting ways to see fall foliage in New Hampshire’s Lakes region (Fall Foliage in New Hampshire’s Lakes Region), we now turn our attention to the New Hampshire’s White Mountains.

Perhaps one of the nicest ways to see the foliage is to drive one of several scenic byways that traverse the White Mountains and the White Mountain National Forest. These include two national scenic byways – the Kancamagus Scenic Byway / Kancamagus Highway and the White Mountain Trail, as well as a couple of New Hampshire Scenic and Cultural Byways – the Presidential Range Trail and the Woodland Heritage Trail. All offer spectacular views of fall foliage.

Another great way to see the foliage where you can let someone else do the driving is on a scenic train ride. Here you have many options including:

Another more active way to get right into the foliage is to go hiking. White Mountains New Hampshire has a great roundup of places to hike in the White Mountains – Hiking In The White Mountains.

Whatever your pleasure, make it a point to see the foliage in the White Mountains this fall.
