This expansive network of multi-use trails begins at the parking area off Winslow and Ray Roads in Dunbarton, NH. Six distinct loops wind outwards towards Stark Pond and Everett Lake, passing over hills and crossing streams and rivers at several points. In addition to the 24 miles of cut trail, numerous dirt and woods roads offer trail users plenty of territory to explore.
This is a multi-use trail system. Please be considerate of other users and know that you may encounter hikers, bikes, ATVs, and horses at any point.
