White Mountain Scenic Highway

The scenic byway SR 16 runs the gamut of eastern New Hampshire scenery. In the south, the woodlands are interspersed with lakes. In the center, the route slices through the White Mountains offering access to numerous ski towns. In the north, it follows the wooded shores of rushing Androscoggin River. The entire byway is ablaze with color in the fall.

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.
