What To Expect

Drive and discover the gorgeously picturesque Kancamagus Scenic Highway! Start off your local self-guided tour from the little New Hampshire town of Lincoln. From here, you can step back in time and get to know the town's rich culture and history as you start your journey into the beautiful landscape of the White Mountains. Hear the traditional Pennacook legend of a great celestial bear and the hunt which changes the seasons. Stop by Otter Lake and get some helpful tips about moose spotting and birdwatching in this vibrant wilderness. As you head toward the jaw-dropping views from Hancock Overlook, you'll learn how these staggering mountains formed in the first place. You'll also get to know about Chief Osceola, a cultural hero around these parts and the namesake for Osceola Mountain.
Take a good look at the famous Mount Washington shortly after that, and learn the significance of this mountain to the Pennacook tribe. Continuing on, more overlooks will offer unbeatable views of the mountains and, if it’s the right time of year, the blazingly beautiful fall foliage. Explore the glittering Sabbaday Falls as hear about the astonishing accomplishment that was the Pennacook Confederacy, and the chief who made it all happen. You’ll also pass by the Russell-Colbath House, a perfectly preserved bit of history and the site of a spooky disappearance.Finally, you’ll get the juicy details on an unlikely war between the Rockefellers and a bunch of beavers, the decline of the Pennacook, and the Saco River Curse, before ending end up at the Saco Ranger Station in Conway with a carload of new memories, and plenty of history to boot!
