Crawford Notch Scenic Road

US 302 in Crawford Notch State Park is a path between the Presidential and White Mountain ranges. It follows the Saco River through White Mountain National Forest with views of stunning granite formations. Nature's power and beauty figure prominently along this byway of notches, mountains, waterfalls and rivers.

Flanked by the Presidential and White Mountains, this byway abounds with glorious mountain scenery that makes up Crawford Notch State Park and the surrounding White Mountain National Forest. Drive through the valley and gaze up at the granite promontories of Crawford Notch, which were carved by an ice sheet in pre-glacial times.
