In 1937, two old town roads were connected to create this remarkable 35-mile stretch of roadway, winding through some of the state's most unspoiled mountain scenery. Kancamagus (pronounced kank-ah-MAH-gus) was one of the first roads in the nation to be designated a National Scenic Byway. No gas stations, hotels, gift shops, or billboards mar the vistas. You'll see one great view after another: the White Mountains, the Swift River, Sabbaday Falls, Lower Falls, and Rocky Gorge. The highest point is just under 3,000 feet, on the flank of Mt. Kancamagus, near Lincoln.
