Walking Trails


Hiking shoes The exquisite natural beauty of New Hampshire is exemplified in the natural areas and walking/hiking trails of the Capital region.

Naturalists of all ages can explore hundreds of acres of protected wildlife, pocket-sized parks and dozens of recreation trails for hiking, biking and jogging. Many of these trails are also open for cross-country skiing in winter. The Merrimack River meanders through the center of the city and provides a multitude of opportunities for swimming, fishing, canoeing and kayaking. The abundance of multi-use natural areas means that outdoor enthusiasts can explore dense woods, open fields and a wide range of wildlife habitats in close proximity to the city.
