The Lake Region has its fair share of covered bridges, off the beaten path in rustic forests and on little-traveled country roads. If you're looking to photograph a covered bridge or simply picnic in the presence of one of these reminders of yesteryear, the following is a list of the major covered bridges in the Lakes Region and their approximate locations.

Ossipe-Whittier
Located in White Lake State Park, off Route 16/25 in Carroll County.
Squam River-Ashland
Located off Highway 3 between Holderness and Ashland.
Franklin
Located off Route 11.
Sandwich-Durgin
Located off Route 113 near North Sandwich in northern Carroll County.
Tannery Hill-Gilford
On the south side of Lake Winnipesaukee.

Scenic Drives

The Lakes Region is a wonderful place to pack the family into the car and go for a ride down a beautiful country road. Listed below are some of the best bets for a lovely view.

See Covered Bridges, also on this page.

Route 109
Center Sandwich to Wolfeboro. Takes you along the northern side of Lake Winnipesaukee, running through Moultonborough, Melvin Village, and Mirror Lake along the way. At Moultonborough, where Route 109 crosses Route 25, you may want to pull over to visit the Old Country Store, circa 1781. Castle in the Clouds is along the way, offering fabulous views of Lake Winnipesaukee.
Route 140
Alton to Belmont. Winds its way through the country south of Lake Winnipesaukee, passing through the town of Gilmanton and by the Lakes Region Greyhound Park while en route.
Route 113
Holderness to South Tamworth and Silver Lake. Runs past Squam Lake and through Sandwich.
Route 3A and Newfound Lake Road
Bristol, Hebron, and Bridgewater. Takes you through the western part of the Lakes Region and along the eastern shore of Newfound Lake.
Route 11
Alton Bay to Glendale. Runs right past Mt. Major and along the southern shoreline of Lake Winnipesaukee.
Route 125/109
