Where to See New Hampshire Fall Foliage in 2019
The Sugar Hill Inn, a romantic Bed and Breakfast nestled in one of the most scenic parts of the White Mountains, is the perfect getaway destinations for leaf-peeping this fall. Fall Foliage usually peaks around the last week in September and lasts through the 2nd week in October. Keep an eye on the color with the White Mountains foliage Tracker. Regardless of when the peak color occurs in 2019, you can be sure of one thing: fall will be simply glorious here in the White Mountains. As you plan your trip to our luxury Bed and Breakfast this year, keep in mind these 10 great ways to see fall foliage in the White Mountains.
- Drive one of the most popular fall foliage drives in America, the Kancamagus Highway. This incredible stretch of highway passes through the heart of the White Mountains and offers some truly spectacular scenery. Plan to give yourself at least an hour for the drive.
- Another great scenic drive in the White Mountains is the 100-mile Pinkham Notch Loop. It offers spectacular views of the Presidential Range, including Mount Washington.
- Our favorite scenic drive to take in the fall is the Mt. Washington Auto Road. At the top, you’ll find one of the most spectacular mountain vistas in all of the White Mountains. The peaks and valleys below are alight with fall colors as the eye can see on a clear day.
- Get a rush at one of the beautiful White Mountains waterfalls, such as Sabbaday Falls. It’s easily reachable via a short hike, and its 45-foot drop is breathtaking during the fall.
- Another wonderful place to explore during these brisk fall months is Lost River Gorge & Boulder Caves. It’s one of New Hampshire’s greatest natural wonders, made all the more beautiful by the surrounding fall colors.
- Go hiking and soak up the scenic mountain vistas at Crawford Notch State Park. There are about 10 waterfalls in and around the park to explore.
- Drive, bike, or hike through Franconia Notch State Park. A trip through Flume Gorge is simply magical during fall.
- Take a tour of the covered bridges in the White Mountains. Bridges like the Jackson Covered Bridge are absolutely astonishing during the peak of fall foliage.
