America's Scenic Byways

Pequawket Trail Scenic Byway

60 miles - 2 hours to drive or a day to enjoy the byway.

The Pequawket Trail Scenic Byway derives its name from the Sokokis Indian tribe that once inhabited the Saco River Valley. Visitors can discover the local work of artisans and craftsmen, experience sustainable working farms, historic villages, and view abundant wildlife in pristine habitats.

Along the journey, the Saco River and the Mountain Division Rail meander parallel to the byway offering swimming, fishing and kayaking, or cross county skiing, snow shoeing, and snowmobiling.

The White Mountain National Forest offers unparalleled scenic vistas, and provides miles of world class hiking and climbing for all levels of enthusiasts.
