Kancamagus Highway is the scenic eastern strip of the New Hampshire Route 112 and is popular for long drives. This road strip stretches through the White Mountain National Forest for 32 miles (51 kilometers), along the banks of the river Swift. The path is flanked by tall coniferous trees with the river flowing softly on one side and bluish mountains yonder. In spring, the trees wear a fresh look, but during autumn the landscape breaks into myriad shades of yellow, orange, red and brown, bathing the entire region in breathtaking natural beauty. The river bed contains plenty of rocks and pure white sand and one can see numerous waterfalls and bridges while driving through this path. September to November is the best time to hike, cycle or bike through the road.
Located in the region of White Mountains, the Saco River Bridge was built in 1850 by Jacob Berry and Peter Paddleford after the collapse of a makeshift log bridge at the site. The covered portion of the bridge is 224'9'' (68.54 meters) and consists for two spans. It is 30'4'' (9.26 meters) wide with a roadway width of 18'3'' (5.57 meters). In 1869, the Saco River Bridge too collapsed when the Swift River crashed into it. After being rebuilt by Allen and Warren Conway it was destroyed again by the tannery fire in 1890. The current bridge was built by Charles Broughton and his son Frank.
