Weeks State Park is named for Senator John Wingate Weeks who sponsored the legislation creating the extraordinary White Mountain National Forest in 1910. Learn more about him and his legacy at the summit house museum. Drive up the 1.6-mile Mountain Road Scenic Byway to the summit of Mount Prospect, keeping an eye out for walkers and cyclists that share the road. Enjoy a picnic, then climb 48 steps of the stone observation tower built in 1912 to outstanding panoramic vistas, or go hiking and geocaching. Participate in a wide range of nature and educational programs such as guided migratory bird or spring wildflowers walks, learn about the Underground Railroad in NH, covered bridges, and more. In winter, enjoy downhill skiing (rope tow), cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, and snowshoeing. There is a day-use fee for all NH State Parks.
