This is a woody hiking area located near the water. The water is easy to see through the trees as you hike. The hiking path is hilly and shaded. This is a very enjoyable hike in the afternoon.

We wind up seeing different things on different days, even on the same trail. Good trail running, bike riding is definitely for the older kids, fun streams.

There is variety here from easy to difficult hiking. The trails include Hamilton House and the site where cows were introduced into North America. Trails also go along river separating New Hampshire and Maine.

The picnic area may not be why you visit. The wonders of pines and brooks and the clean air is why you visit. This would be a fantastic place to bring elementary school children to do a scavenger hunt with a list of things to...More
