A section of the PEA trail system is part of the cross country course, so it is well maintained and clearly marked. A nice place to run, bike, and cross country ski. Mostly flat with few roots.

My wife and I hiked through here as an easy afternoon stroll. It is literally a walk in the park with some bushwhacking along the river if you wish to be more adventurous. Great for dates, young children, physically or otherwise handicapped, elderly.

Great place to walk, snow shoe or cross country ski. I mostly go in the winter. You will feel like you are out in the woods!

Love PEA Woods!! Best place to get away, in without going away. Lots of wildlife and great scenery. I am spoiled to have this gem in my back yard. You can do a quick walk or a 3 hour hike, and still not walk the same trail twice!

Nice spot to walk your dog and get a breath of fresh air. Some interesting buildings and shops nearby. Phillips Exeter Academy does a great job keeping everything up. Their Security department is frequently out and about. Easy to find parking.

This is a nice trail in the heart of Exeter, and maintained by Phillips Exeter Academy. If you are looking for some respite from your travels, take a little walk and enjoy the woods of Southern New Hampshire!

Leafy and cool, with dappled sunlight, enjoy a walk or bring your bicycles. Well- posted trails, but stay on them, or rik getting very lost ! cool down with a rope swing splash ino the meandering river.

Nice wooded area trails on PEA property. Often come here because (1) its close to home and (2) they allow dogs. NH is notoriously unfriendly to dogs in most of the parks. These trails are owned by PEA and allow dogs.

Great local area to explore, visit and exercise in. Close and quiet, very safe and natural. Good for walks , hikes, bike rides, snow shoening in season. Kayak the Exeter River which winds along side of the trails.
