Today I’m going to start a New series on Exploring Sugar Hill NH.
Beaver Pond starting point
First as of last week we left Beaver pond better known as Kinsman Notch and across the ridge above you can travel the Appalachian trail. Oh and before you click away check out below for a current foliage report from the Kancamagus Highway!
Travel up 112 until you turn onto Route 116
After you leave the Beaver pond, please continue to travel 4.6 miles to route 116 taking the right hand turn. The next 5.4 miles will be very scenic and you will be in the outer edge of the White Mountain National Forest for most of it. Along the way, Route 116 will also become Easton Road and you can either take that or follow my map (below) and explore some more. Also you can download here a PDF that has the turns listed.
Route 116 through western White Mtns to Sugar Hill
One morning following 116 I did find this red barn attached to a wonderful white farmhouse. I pulled over as the sun was starting to burn off the morning fog. Behind me there was a tall maple tree and a white fence standing all alone and they were even more isolated as they were surrounded by fog..
This day will continue but what you see here will be many trips worth of images. I try to travel this route every autumn. Each time it delivers a different feeling of fall. Sometimes sunny and sometimes rainy. Either way I find it I fall in love with fall all over again.
Next we’ll look for Toad Hill road… That is a fun road name!
Kancamagus foliage report
A Scott Snyder drove the “Kanc” today (18 Sept 2016) and he reports that he thinks it will be colorful in 2 weeks! I’m happy when Mother Nature don’t make me look too foolish… 1 October is usually the right time for the fall colors to really nice on the “Kanc”.Jeff "Foliage" Folger You can purchase images by visiting my Fine Art Gallery websites

but people call me Jeff Foliage.
I have several pages that I write blogs for such as: http://www.4cornersnewengland.com/
My most popular blog is for Leaf peepers: Jeff Foliage.com.
I live in Salem, Massachusetts and work as a blogger and Travel Photographer. I'm also the founder of the New England Photography Guild.
Feel free to visit me on my blogs and see what life in New England is like.
I started with Yankee Magazine as their first blogger on everything fall foliage. Now I blog on my own blog on my favorite subject, telling leaf peepers where the fall foliage is showing up in New England and helping them (to some extent) plan their fall foliage vacations.
