This drive is absolutely beautiful in the Fall. There is plenty of sightseeing opportunities, but fill up before you go, no gas stations on this drive, but it is only about 34 miles.

Take your time and stop often to enjoy all the beautiful views along the road. Sorry to say the waterfall stop was closed for repairs. There are plenty of other spots though

Spent a day driving the highway. Perfect time was the 2nd week in October for the perfect foliage. Lots of things to do and places to stay along the way. Recommend the Cannon Aerial tramway along the way.

Sunset is 7:14pm on the so plenty of time before it is dark. You've pretty much highlighted most of the places to stop with a view. But also have a look at Pemigewasset Overlook
