Lake Winnisquam Scenic Trail

A few photos starting from Leslie Roberts Beach end heading south toward Osborn’s Agway.

WOW – It’s A Trail

It’s a brand new section of trail in Belmont which runs from Osborn’s Agway to the Route 3 By-pass. There is an Opening Celebration on September 17, which happens to be the day of our meeting. Come join us at 10:00 for the opening and meet some of the dedicated locals who have been working on getting the trail built.

We (me and anyone who wants to join in) have offered to extend our litter pickup to make a pass along the trail. Look for an opportunity to go through prior to opening day. Drop a comment if there is a convenient date for you.

And remember our regular monthly meeting is at noon at the New Hong Kong Buffet just off Rt. 3.

Winter in the Lakes Region

Some think winter is for hibernating but if you feel the need to shake off the cabin fever, a hike up Mt. Major in Alton will provide you with an awesome view of Lake Winnipesaukee.

While it is not handicap accessible, Mt Major is a fairly easy hike for a person in reasonable condition. It is a very popular hike and can be crowded on weekends and holidays. I prefer a mid-week hike to avoid the crowd.

For those coming to New Hampshire for Liberty Forum, you won’t need much equipment to hike Mt. Major. Hiking always requires proper judgement and preparation. If conditions are reasonable minimal equipment will get you to the top. The trails are well worn and snow is packed down by the stream of hikers.
