Designation: New Hampshire State Scenic Byway
Length, One-Way: 65 Miles (108.33 Kilometers)

General Information

Description - The route circumnavigates the northernmost section of the White Mountain National Forest (the Kilkenny District). This district is crammed with forests, parks, and lakes. For that reason, there is almost no end to recreational opportunities. When you're here, you can expect to see wildlife, enjoy first-rate fishing and boating, and have a terrific hike or campout.

The route is unique because of its wood products heritage. This heritage is illustrated most incisively at the Northern Forest Heritage Park in Berlin which highlights the cultures that came here as a result of the burgeoning of the wood products industry in the 19th and early 20th century. The park includes a museum, logging camp, and a blacksmith shop. It hosts quite a few local and cultural events, and workshops.

The importance of the wood products industry is evidenced at other sites, like Wausau Paper Company and the Groveton Paperboard Company--both working mills.

Attractions - The Woodland Heritage Trail is known for it's Historical and Scenic Attractions.
