Ride alongside some impressive peaks and wide open roads in The Granite State. "Live Free Or Die" is the state's motto, and between the White Mountains and the seacoast beaches, you'll certainly be riding free on these great motorcycle roads in New Hampshire!

Kancamagus Highway

Route 112

One the most popular and best motorcycle roads in New Hampshire is the Kancamagus Highway, which runs through the White Mountains from Conway to Lincoln. The entire road is relatively short at an hour ride. But pay the honor system fee to gain access to the short waterfall hikes and lounge on the rockmass of the stream at the foot of the highway.

Mt. Washington Auto Road

(7.7 miles)

This should be on any motorcyclist's "bucket list". Despite being a short ride, this road is by far the most exciting, challenging motorcycle road in all of New England! The road is mostly paved well, with the exception of a particularly steep gravel section. The ride up is exhilarating. The ride down will definitely keep you in first gear, but overlooks the majestic White Mountains in a way that can't be seen from any other NH motorcycle road.
