Drove this road going northwards on our way home to Montreal. It was a gorgeous sunny day and we stopped at a few lookouts to enjoy the views.

The leaves were turning and this scenic route was worth the time to enjoy. Can be a little crowded in the fall. We got some great photos

Some good hiking spots, and beautiful scenery. It was fun to stop and walk on the rocks in the rapids.

Nice drive year round. Many scenic overlooks, trails to waterfalls and other scenic places, and good campgrounds. The highway is well maintained in the winter. The only negative is that the highway can be a parking lot on the weekends during leaf peeper season.

We came out of Conway to get to the highway. You will pass a water fall on the right side and there is public parking.
