Fall Foliage in New Hampshire, A time of year not to be missed

The Fall Foliage season on Squam Lake has arrived and the vivid autumn palette of reds, oranges, golds, and browns  before the leaves fall off the tree is a picture not to miss.  Each turn in the road of New Hampshire surrounds you with a breathtaking landscape of Nature’s autumn palette.

With so many ways to enjoy the peak foliage from hiking in the White Mountains, driving on the Kancamagus highway, riding the aerial tram up Cannon Mountain or be it by relaxing in our New Hampshire hotel and watching the trees paint their own picture.

At this time of year a drive thru the White Mountains of New Hampshire on their scenic highway will be the highlight of your trip. A drive through the gentle, winding roads of New Hampshire with fantastic views of the trees in their finest autumnal fashion will give you a real idea of the beauty of this season and the reason why this is the best time of the year for many locals. While traveling the highway a whistle stop gondola ride at Loon Mountain Resort will give you a fantastic aerial view mosaic of the New Hampshire countryside.

 Hiking in the fall foliage is a serene time to experience whether it’s a short stroll through the woods to Rattlesnake Mountain or a more enduring hike along the Appalachian Trail in the White Mountains you will never be disappointed. Another great vantage point to watch the foliage would be the top of Mount Washington which is New England’s highest mountain of the White Mountain.  Mount Washington (6288ft) is accessible by the auto road, the vintage Cog Railway and by hiking for those more adventurous. The views at the top of the foliage over the presidential mountain range will keep you mesmerized you hours.

Squam Lakes Natural Science Center has a amazing Boat tour of Squam Lake to see the scenic Squam Mountain ranges that surround Squam Lake.  The loons are in a playful mood this time of year since they are king and queen of Golden Pond with the summer visitors gone.  You might even at catch them playing a game of duck, duck goose.

 And after a busy day of exploring what better incentive than to return to our quaint Holderness Inn and relax in the warmth of our log burning fires.
