Description - This byway's stunning singularity is the Presidential Range. This range (part of the White Mountains,) serves as a backdrop at times, and at other times, looms as you round curves (as on route 2). Pinkham Notch, a high mountain pass, elicits even more natural spectacle.
The Presidentials cradle cozy New England villages and pedestal the Wildcat Mt. Ski Area.
On a clear day you can see the smoke rising from the Cog Railway as it heads up the western side of Mt. Washington.
