Walking in the National Forest

 

 

White Mountain National Forest - Kancamagus Highway

Oliverian / Downes Brook

 

Location; 12.7 miles west on the Kancamagus from Conway is the Oliverian Trail parking lot. One mile further west is the Downes Brook/Mt. Hedgehod/Mt. Potash parking lot. Walking the cross-country ski trails make for a nice meander. If you enter at Oliverian and walk west to Downes Brook and back it's about a 2 mile walk round trip. Add extra distance if you take the cross-country ski west loop intersecting at the UNH trail.

Deer Brook Road

 

Location: 6 miles west on Kancamagus Highway from Conway (through the Covered Bridge). There is no sign that labels the Deer Brook Road though. Park at the parking lot right off the Kancamagus and walk through the covered bridge. The trail is on your left. Walk past the gate and enjoy! This path is a part of the Nanamocomuck cross country ski trail. The trail parallels the Swift River and you can go as far as you'd like; maybe walk the side loops if you wish. Keep a watchful eye or ear out for the many critters and plant like along the way. Arm yourself with binoculars, cameras and bug spray which may be needed.

Rob Brook Road

 

Location: From Conway, take the Kancamagus Highway 9 miles to Bear Notch Road. Rob Brook Road is .08 miles on the left. A nice walk with views and boggy areas. You never know, you may see a meandering moose or berry-picking bear among the chatering quirrels and happy songbirds!
