Another vote to include Franconia Notch in your plans. It is absolutely glorious there during the Fall (or any time for that matter).

You really can't go wrong traveling ME, NH & VT during foliage season. It will mostly be a matter of how much you want to be in the busy areas vs. the "road less traveled" as someone else already stated.

I think driving it is easier than spelling it!

My brother always called it the gag a maggot highway because he couldn't remember the real name of it.

It's best to make frequent stops at turn-outs because the driver can't fully enjoy the views and safely navigate that road. Watch the weather and try to pick a clear day with few clouds. The road cannot be appreciated when you are in the clouds or looking down on clouds.

When in the New London area, stop at Freedom Acres. It was built by two women retired Army officers. They made jams and jellies and all their fruit was hand picked before the name organic was invented. My boys used to call it the "Jam in the Clouds Place".

Indian Chief Kancamagus. "The Fearless One". The last chief of the Pennacook Confederacy, a loose union of 17 tribes.

I have tent camped on the Kancamagus only a couple years ago at this time of year. Hancock at the end of March by the Swift river is worth the effort. Parking a breeze and we had our pick of sites to set up.
