New Hampshire's Scenic Countryside

22.1 miles: 0 hours, 31 minutes

A picturesque drive through the hills of New Hampshire on SR 10/SR 31 takes you through Newport and Hillsborough, where 14th President of the U.S., Franklin Pierce, grew up. Among the beautiful trees and scenery are Cape Cod and Victorian homes. Forested hills develop amazing colors during fall.


Though beautiful year-round, SR 10/SR 31 is popular among leaf peepers in September and October for the hills that carry them through the New Hampshire countryside full of changing colors. Also along this route are the towns Newport and Hillsborough which have many 19th-century Victorian and Cape Cod houses.
