It features numerous pullouts, hiking trails, and scenic vistas along its route through Franconia Notch State Park and Crawford Notch State Park. The route takes its name from an Abenaki word meaning “the place where waters gather.”
In 2001, it became a designated National Scenic Byway by the US Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) due to its unique beauty and natural resources as well as cultural significance; it remains one today!
