Kancamagus Highway Rte 112

Known affectionately to local folks as the "Kanc", this road offers some of the most stunning scenery in all of New Hampshire. So that you won't immediately be tagged as a visitor the correct pronounciation of the road is: "Kank - uh - mog - us". The road winds from the town of Lincoln on the southern end to Conway on the north with many lookouts in between.

If you are traveling to Bartlett or looking for a road that will take you over into the Crawford Notch region, Take the Bear Notch Road which diverges north in Passaconaway and bear left onto Rte 302 in the town of Bartlett ( Bear Notch Rd. not maintained for winter travel).

For Bicyclers:
The Kancamaugus is not for the faint of heart. Long steep upgrades and downgrades will have you panting with exertion and yelling with glee but don't forget that a lot of folks drive this route and chances are they are paying more attention to the scenery than they are to the road so be cautious.

Moose Alert!
This road may be populated by extremely large and beautiful creatures!
