The Sunapee Ragged Kearsage Greenway overlaps with many other New London Conservation Commission Trails. The SRKG is clearly marked by white trapezoids, including where it follows portions of New London Conservation Commission Trails, which have their own round red blazes.
From the west, the trail drops to Kidder Brook, climbs and crosses a ridge to the source of Great Brook, then descends along Great Brook to near the northwest end of Pleasant Lake in New London. The SRKG then follows the Wolf Tree Trail, parts of the Webb Forest Interpretive Trail and the White Pine Trail, and goes through a mixture of well-developed wooded paths and woods logging roads, with two uphill sections. From an elevation of approximately 800 ft. at Pleasant Lake, the trail rises to 1500 ft., and then drops to 1200 ft. at US 4A. From US-4A the SRKG gores through a mixture of well-developed wooded trails and woods-logging roads with one uphill section. From an elevation of approximately 1200 ft. at NH Route 4A it rises up to 1800 ft. at the summit of Bog Mountain and finishes at 900 ft. elevation in Wilmot Center. Deer, turkeys, bears and moose have been seen by hikers on this trail.
The SRK Greenway is a 75-mile loop of hiking trails in central New Hampshire. The Greenway Trail System circles the Lake Sunapee area and connects Sunapee, Ragged, and Kearsarge Mountains. Find out more here.
