Planning Tips

  1. April weather is unpredictable.
    Weather can be unpredictable in April in the Great North Woods, snow or mud could impact road conditions.
  2. Arrive Early, Stay Late.
    There are limited roads leading in and out of the northern part of New Hampshire. Visitors are urged to avoid unnecessary travel on the day of the eclipse, so choose your viewing location ahead of time and plan to arrive early and stay late. Do not plan to pull over on the side of the roadways to view the eclipse. Doing so can put you at risk of getting stuck in mud or snow, and tow trucks will face major delays in getting to you. Get real time road conditions and updates.
  3. Bring Supplies.
    It may be a good idea to pack some essential supplies, such as water and snacks. Be sure to have a full tank of gas and if you have an electric vehicle, map out before you leave your home, where you’ll be able to get it charged.
The Great North Woods is a beautiful place to witness this historic event. A reminder to everyone to be responsible travelers. Practice Leave No Trace while you’re here by picking up after yourself and being kind and respectful to others who are here to do the same thing.
