Moose Alley Route 3
Pittsburg, NH

It's known as Moose Alley because it's the best place in New Hampshire to see some of the 10,000 or so moose that find their home here.

The Pittsburg stretch of Route 3 to the Canadian border is dotted with large yellow signs announcing "Brake for Moose. It could save your life. Hundreds of collisions." And, that's no joke. But if you are careful, you can likely spot a moose at almost any time of day here.

The best times to catch a glimpse of these magnificient creatures are dusk and dawn. So, next time you are in the north country, take a trip down Route 3 and keep your eyes peeled to the sides of the road.
