Scenic SR 16 spans almost the entire length of eastern New Hampshire. Lake bespeckled woodlands in the south and the wooded shores of the Androscoggin River in the north await. The road also cuts through White Mountain National Forest where the thick forest stretches into the mountains. All are lit by vibrant colors in autumn.
