    New Hampshire

    The Road Less Traveled
    By coming to New Hampshire in a way you are already off the beaten path. The state is a heaven for the outdoors. Any activity you can think of in a distinct four season environment. There are over 140 campgrounds in NH...Plenty of Biking trails in and around state and local parks.
    Ponds, streams and lakes to Fish. Some beautiful golf courses are scattered across the state. Miles of hiking trails to check out the scenery. I placed here
    links to some of the best guide books for this area the Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC)
    White mountain guide is considered to be the bible for hiking around here. I like the Gazetteer as it help me to find the streams and ponds where the fish are waiting.

    New Hampshire has many great destination spots that pertain to our nation's beginnings. There are many historical sites and museums. Some of the best times can be spent just driving the backroads. Autumn (between mid September and mid October) is a great time for viewing our wonderful foliage.

    Search out the best of quaint New England: the covered bridge at Jackson just off Rte. 16, the charming town of Hopkinton with its white-steepled churches surrounding the village square, just off Rte. 89, a few miles west of Concord.

    Covered bridges (sometimes called 'kissing bridges') are found all over New Hampshire. Each is unique in design, reflecting the time in which it was built and its maker's taste and skill. They're a great place to wait out a summer rain, a wonderful vantage point for watching a snowfall, or for admiring the reflection of fall foliage in the clear water. One of the most thrilling times to be on a covered bridge is when the river or stream below is swollen by spring runoff. It's like being in a scene from 'The Bridges of Madison County'!!!!! aaaaawwwwwwww (sigh!)

    As you drive along Rte 302 in Crawford Notch, take time to stop and view Silver Cascade along the highway. There's a rest stop opposite and you can cross the road for a beautiful shot of this cascade.

    Don't turn around at the Falls like most people, cross the brook, no bridge this time and continue up the Frankenstein Cliff trail. It gets a lot steeper but you'll have some great views along the trail, even if the mountains are shrouded in clouds.

    Arethusa Falls and Frankenstein Cliff

    This loop trail will take you to the base of New Hampshire's highest waterfall and over the top of Frankenstein Cliff. I did this hike on a day when it poured with rain so the views from the cliffs were not as great as they could have been but they were still magical in their own way.

    It's a rocky climb for the first hour of the trail.

    Boulder Loop Trail is about a 2.5 mile hike that takes you to ledges on the southwest spur of the Moat Range. It takes about about 2 hours to complete the loop and the views from the top are excellent.

    Basin Cascades Trail was a lovely hike just off I93. It starts at the Basin and ends at the intersection of Cascade Brook Trail. It's extremely scenic and it's a fairly moderate trail but the footing can be rough at times.

    Depending on when you do the hike you might also encounter snow. Remember, this is the end of May that I did this hike. The snow was melting, but it was very slippery and later on in the trail the melting snow caused streams to take over the path.

    Do the Kinsman Ridge Trail.

    The first hike that I attempted was part of the Kinsman Ridge Trail which is on Mt. Cannon. I had taken the aerial tramway to the top and my plan was to now hike down the mountain. It's a very steep trail which mostly consists of scrambling over rocks to make your way down the side of the mountain.

    In this part of New Hampshire there are many attractions such as the Polar Caves, Castle in the Clouds, the Cog Railway, to name a few. We visited the Polar caves and on our way to them we hiked through some pretty areas. This is one of the areas where the rocks were wet, giving the perception of water running over them. Can you see it through the greenery?

    by Nonsail Written Aug 25, 2002

    The Kangamangus Highway runs through the White Mountain National Forest in the North Conway area of New Hampshire. The road is very challenging to drive on and in the winter months is closed. Running along the side of the road is a river (I will refer to it as the Kangamangus River as I'm not sure of its actual name). It is a very rocky river and thus a good place to find a series of natural waterfalls as the water rushes over the rocks.
