Our last stop is the Conway Scenic Railroad, located where the White Mountain Range passes over the border between New Hampshire and Maine. Departing from the historic North Conway Train Station, there are two pet-friendly journeys to choose from, and Fido will even receive a green Doggy Ticket prior to boarding. The Valley Train takes you on a picturesque route, crossing over the occasional babbling stream and river, with the beautiful backdrop of the mountains in the distance. You can either travel half of the route to Conway, which is about 11 miles and takes just under an hour, or go the whole 21 miles to Bartlett on a trip that lasts for almost two hours.
The second route is the Notch Train. Spanning 60 miles, the five-hour round trip covers an epic stretch of country from Portland through the White Mountains to Vermont. Your journey takes you over Crawford Notch’s unbelievably sheer bluffs, steep ravines, choppy streams and dramatic mountain vistas. You’ll then cross Frankenstein Trestle, a huge wooden bridge built in 1875. Fido won’t have to hold it in for the whole ride, as there’s a layover at Crawford Station. Immerse yourself in New England’s incredible woodland at The Overlook in nearby Carroll County.
Conway Scenic Railroad welcomes one dog per party for no additional fee in Coach Class.
