8 / 8

For the next few miles there are numerous scenic overlooks (beginning at 85.1), including the C.L. Graham Wangan Ground scenic overlook (86.3) and those with views of the Pemigewasset (86.7), the Osceola Range (88.5), and Mt. Hancock (89.1). The views are thanks, in part, to the fact that you've reached the crest if the Kancamagus Pass (86.5), with its 2855 foot elevation. From here, the road descends, past the Greeley Ponds trailhead (90.0); Otter Rocks rest area (91.5); and Lincoln Woods Trailhead (94.6), a rest area with information provided by the US Forest Service. At the opposite end of the Kancamagus-near where this tour begins- is Lincoln- Woodstock, an area that was a major summer resort as early as 1870. Today it is a busy resort area your round whose appeal is easy to see. Golfers, tennis players, archery enthusiasts, horseback riders and rollerbladers will find ample opportunity to enjoy their favorite sports, as will anglers, hikers, cyclists, boaters and motorsports fans. The area is also known for its fine shopping and numerous restaurants. Lincoln offers easy access to the National Forest, as well as the area's many quality family attractions, including Loon Mountain (97.1) with its skyride, glacial caves, horseback riding, mountain biking, hiking, skate park, climbing walls and more. It's all aboard at the Hobo Railroad (99.6) on Main Street, Lincoln. The round trip train excursions cross back and forth along the Pemigewasset River, offering a variety of open vistas along the way. Most trips are narrated by the conductor, and a car attendant serves Hobo Picnic Lunches and ice cream. The station Gift Shop offers a good selection of gifts for the whole family, especially for the railroad historian. Lincoln's diverse past as both a vacation and manufacturing center is evident throughout the town: the former J.E. Henry paper mill today houses the North Country Center for the Arts, stores, restaurants and an inn. We hope you have enjoyed your tour.
