I've only visited once while staying in Lincoln, New Hampshire. My family and I were just looking for a nice hike nearby, and this was perfect! The ranger directed us to a beautiful trail that went right along the river. It was a nice wide dirt road (old railroad tracks actually), a little hilly, but a very easy hike overall. The view from the suspension bridge was spectacular being that it was almost peak foliage. After our hike we climbed down and relaxed in the sun on the rocks along the river, while my daughter played in the water. Gorgeous!

We went to see the Ice Castles in Lincoln NH over the weekend. It was beautiful. We had the whole family kids ages 16 months. 3yrs, 11yrs,and 14yrs. All had a wonderful time. When you purchases your passes you can leave and come back as many times you like within that day of purchase. Best to wear snow suits and gear. There are tunnels you can crawl through and slides to go down all made of ice. There are some patches of ice on paths so beware of that. Beautiful color of lights are inside the ice which come on in the evening. Best advice if you have a sled bring it for the kids strollers not recommended. Lots of fun.

Lincoln woods visitors center has plenty of parking providing access to river or mountain walks, and swimming holes and water falls. Mountain bikes are permitted so get out and have a blast!

You can follow the Lincoln Woods trail out on an old railbed flat trail along the river. If you head out to the bridge about 3 miles out, there is a side trail to a nice waterfall and cascades. This is an easy trail that provides access to many other trails and adventures!

We decided to camp overnight in Lincoln woods State Park. We were greeted by a friendly ranger in the parking lot asking us how long we would be out there. He let us know there was still a few campsites
but there was alot of groups down there. Also told us there was a ranger site down there, a bearbox, and a bathroom. We did the 2 hour backpacking hike to the campsites.
I think they are waiting for a bear to actually hurt someone till they take the bear situation seriously. I get these are animals are usually harmless to humans and just want food. We saw the signs warning us what to do if we came across a bear. We followed all precautions and rules. But having a bear sighting sign is NOT ENOUGH. To be honest of you bring any food at all...prepare to he terrorized by these bears. 7pm and the 4 of us made our campfire and starting to cook hotdogs and sausages. I took one bite of food and heard the most uncomfortable loud hissing sound directly behind me...to turn around in shock and be face to face with a large black bear. He continued to hiss as I got up and moved away. This moment was one of the scariest of my life. I dont care what precautions they tell you to take nothing prepares you in such a moment of adrenaline you fear for your life. These are large wild animals and can be unpredictable. He went through our stuff and lingered around. We had to abandon our campsite and luckily friendly campers nearby offered help and assistance. It was one of the worst sleepless nights of my life. All through the night you could hear screams from other people, loud clapping and people yelling to get the bear out of their site.
If this is your idea of a fun camping spot where you can rough it and get the full experience with friends or family I highly advise you choose a different place. For peace of mind. They might not of hurt anyone, yet. But that doesnt mean it's not scary and it's not possible. This one was not responding to our loud noises. We realized it wasnt leaving our campsight anytime soon. I can imagine these bears are smart enough to figure out people camp here and cook food and they know where to find it...therefore chances of it sneaking up on you when you u have any food or scents out are very likely. We filled out a bear report as soon as we got back

I would highly recommend you go to this part during the week days, why? On the weekends this two lane road is at a standstill but as you are driving you can see people park on the shoulder to get their photos. It took us about 3 hours until we finally got to Lincoln, NH. So time it right and it will be no problem.

My wife and I decided to take up hiking so with a little research I found this trail. I'm glad I did. It started out pretty flat however there are some options for you to take. With the black pond trail and the Franconia falls trail it gives you all the elevation changes you would want. This trail continues but I don't know how far for sure. It turns into an AMC trail and goes on from there. The views are awesome. For us this ended up being just under a 10 mile hike round trip. This is a must do if you are in the area and like being in the out doors. I suggest a lot of water some trail mix and maybe even a lunch. We had lunch at the falls. What an awesome day.....

I've been going to Lincoln Woods since the mid-80's. It never grows old, although I have. The three miles from the parking lot to the bridge makes for a great easy day hike. You can take a dip in the river after the hike. I love going for a run here and try to stop at Lincoln woods any time I pass by. Best bet is to get an annual parking pass for all White mountain forest.
