Lincoln NH is such a lovely town.
They are shopping, great places to eat, lots of activities to do and trails to be hiked! Lincoln is great because it's between the Kancamagus Highway and Franconia Notch. There are so many hiking trails when you head to both places that it will be hard to pick from them all. Kancamagus has Mt. Hancock, Mt. Kancamagus, Mt. Osceola, Mt. Chocotua and many more. There are also some lovely waterfalls to view, like Sabbaday and Champney. This area is a great place for looking at the leaves in the fall. There are views along the highway to stop and take pictures as well.
If you head up Franconia Notch there are some more lovely mountains to hike and see beautiful fall views. Hike up Mt. Liberty, Mt. Lafayette, Mt. Lincoln and so on. There is also the Flumes to visit and you can take the tram up Cannon Mountain for some nice views. You can also make a stop at the Basin and hang out at Echo Lake.
When you are staying in Lincoln there is also the Loon Mountain to visit and the Alpine Adventures' Zipline tour. Also enjoy a train ride on the Hobo Railroad which will give you a tour of some lovely views through the white mountains! Lodging in Lincoln is a great idea for those who want to be Leaf Peepers this year! There are campgrounds, hotels, Inns and cottages that are found all over Lincoln! So, if you are up for some fun this fall, head over to Lincoln for some Color Changing Fun in the White Mountains of New Hampshire!
