Dublin Rotary Park Trail
From Peterborough, drive west on NH-101 (Dublin Rd) and continue for 10 miles, continuing past Dublin Lake. The turn for the Rotary Park is on the right of the road, marked by a Rotary Club sign. Drive down the short dirt road that leads to the parking area and the trailhead.
The Rotary Club Trail begins in an open grassy field and winds by picnic tables and bird houses. After a time, the trail splits where the field ends.
To go to the waterside picnic area from here, continue straight and follow the short trail that leads along the water and to the picnic tables.
Turn right to access the rest of the trail. From there the trail ascends a very moderate hill through the wood, at the top of which is a picnic table and a place to relax. From there the trail descends the hill with a moderate slope, winding through forest and fields of ferns. Visitors can continue on the trail and return to the parking area, or turn off the walking trail at the signs for the picnic area to access the waterfront and picnic tables.
In 1978 Samuel Tamposi donated 40 acres of land to the town of Dublin, NH to create a recreation area for the citizens of Dublin and the surrounding region. In 2008 members of the Monadnock Rotary Club embarked on a project to make the property along Howe Reservoir more accessible to the public. In partnership with members of the Dublin Conservation Commission and other residents of Dublin, the Monadnock Rotary Club cleared trails and created picnic areas and canoe and kayak launch sites.
