From the table in the dining room:
Mt. Washington Valley offers more dining with a view than any other New England destination. Whether it’s overlooking North Conway with Cranmore Mountain front and center from the White Mountain Hotel’s dining room, to a fabulous view of the Moat Mountains and Presidentials from Darby Field Inn, you’ll find spectacular dining with a view throughout Mt.

From the seat of a car, train, bike or chairlift, there’s more than one way to peep a leaf in Mt Washington Valley, NH
North Conway, NH - Hail to the “peep” this fall with a visit to Mt. Washington Valley, located in the heart of New Hampshire’s White Mountains. Offering not only spectacular foliage but a wide variety of ways to enjoy the harvest hues of Mother Nature’s artistry, there’s plenty of great ways to enjoy Mt. Washington Valley’s fall foliage throughout this autumn. Here are some conventional and a few unconventional suggestions for viewing Mt. Washington Valley’s fall foliage.
From The Seat of a Train:
Mt. Washington Valley offers a host of train rides. Book your seat on the Cog Railway and take this famous train ride to the top of Mt. Washington or enjoy fabulous scenic tours to Conway, Bartlett and Crawford Notch on the Conway Scenic Railroad.
From the Top of the Notch:
Scenic drives through Crawford Notch to Bretton Woods or Pinkham Notch to Gorham offer everything from ridge top vistas and rock formations to moose sightings. Be sure to have the camera ready because around every turn there’s a new surprise.
From the Moose Van:
Take a ride along the picturesque Androscoggin River and into the 13-Mile Woods area or travel into “Moose Alleys” in other parts of the Valley on a choice of spectacular and scenic Moose/Wildlife Tour. As many as 23 moose have been spotted in one tour. Tours also includes folklore and historic features of the region. Choose from three different tours including Dan’s Scenic Tours, Gorham Moose Tours and MWV Moose Bus Tours/Moose Safari.
From a Gondola, Ski Lift or Zipline:
Fall is the time of year to take in the spectacular vistas from Mt. Washington Valley’s mountaintops. For those who’d rather not hike up, take the lift. A scenic ride on the Wildcat Gondola or the high-speed quad at Attitash or Bretton Woods offers fabulous picnic grounds and views into Mt. Washington’s Tuckerman Ravine or over the whole Bartlett region. For a truly “zipalicious” view of foliage, try the zip line at Wildcat, the Canopy Tour at Bretton Woods, high ropes courses at Monkey Trunks.
From the Pumpkin People or Scarecrow Tour:
Each year, a highlight of foliage season is “The Return of the Pumpkin People”. Businesses throughout Mt. Washington Valley create whimsical displays of pumpkin people; the only requirement being that the heads are made of pumpkins. Take a self-guided tour of the pumpkin people and vote on your favorite from Oct 1-23, 2010. On Saturday, Oct 2, 2010, dozens of scary, pretty, and just plain fun scarecrows competing for more than $2500 in prize money will debut as you hunt for fall bargains at Settlers’ Green Outlet Village. Scarecrows will be on display throughout the month. Visit Mt. Washington Valley’s most up-to-date online calendar of events.
