  • Many turn-offs offer opportunity for great fall scenery pictures along this road. Short walks get better shots.  more »
  • This is not your typical state park full of parking lots and picnic tables. This is a wilderness park whereby you should plan on doing some hiking including elevation gain when you arrive.  more »
  • Crawford Notch State Park is wonderful to hike when you are in the New Hampshire area. There in late September so we missed the fall foliage.  more »

  • Amazing place to visit. We visited in early June and the park is practically uninhabited. Hard to believe all this was completely logged at one point. Can't wait to visit the area again.
  • This park was an amazing crescendo to our White Mountain vacation! The picnic area is along a small river pond, all nestled in a literal bowl of mountains! The views are breath taking. An abundance of trails gives lots of hiking options for all interest levels. Restrooms are available, and the park is a carry-in-carry-out. We stayed into the early evening and were able to see the sun set over the mountains, washing the rocky faces in brilliant orange and reds, it is truly something to witness. The drive in is just as amazing as the park itself! No matter which direction you drive in from you should take the moment to drive the mountain pass, as the views and cliffs are worth seeing. With the lodge at the top, you could turn this park into a vacation of its own, and has certainly made my list of places to return to.
  • This is a really nice place to stay. It is a really nice place to stay for vacation.
  • Beautiful snow falling on the mountains picture perfect , just take it a little slow going down by the two sets of waterfalls slightly slippery where the road gets a little steeper
  • Awesome place to ice climb and check out Arethusa Falls
