Glorious autumn

Great scenic views. Numerous areas to take photos and reflect on nature. However, people are not allowed to even dip a toe in the water!

We love the trails at Massabesic. Our dogs also love to walk here. Very clean and easy flat trail to walk on. We have found that there are not a lot of ticks or bugs here which is a plus.

I have been visiting the Northeast Delta Dental Stadium for a number of years now, both personally and through my work. This is a beautiful stadium and an affordable outing. There isn't a bad seat in the place, the food is good and the staff are very helpful. I would highly recommend this for a day out or a work... More

This is the resevoir that provides water supply for Mancheseter, NH and environs. For that reason swimming is not allowed but you can do a little boating (i.e. kayaking etc.). Just a delightful spot to rest along side a body of water. There are trails around the lake shaded by well cared for trees. It is just off Route 101... More

I loved the fact that I could take my dogs for a walk around the lake - they loved it and they met a lot of nice dog friends!

You can hike around the lake or sit by the water. Many of us grab food/ice cream to go and picnic by the lake.

Since I was a boy riding my bike here, Massabesic Lake has been my favorite sanctuary in this growing city. Located on the far east side, it has many winding trails, a little park area, & beautiful scenic views. You can take a walk & almost feel lost, & explore little coastline alcoves to sit & relax while looking over... More

Lake Massabesic is actually Manchester's drinking water supply, so there's no swimming allowed, but that doesn't matter, because that isn't the purpose of visiting this wonderful site. You really should come prepared to hike or run for few miles in some beautiful woods in NH in the spring, summer, and fall. Now, let's not forget about the winter, which I... More

We often hike the trail that goes from Lake Massabesic to Auburn and beyond. It's a wonderful trail. In winter you can snowshoe, and that's just as good as a hike.
