Jan 29th, 2013 | By

The U.S. Forest Service announced the White Mountain National Forest in New Hampshire is honored on an America the Beautiful Quarter released recently by the U.S. Mint. The 800,000-acre White Mountain National Forest also includes the 34-mile-long Kancamagus Scenic Byway with one of the most beautiful routes through New Hampshire’s White Mountains. A trip across the Kanc, as locals refer to it, includes rushing rivers, a covered bridge, breathtaking vistas and possibly a glimpse of an elusive moose. The byway connects with the White Mountain Trail to make a loop.
