Hiking, horseback riding, bicycle riding, jogging, snow shoeing, x country skiing. Good for strollers.

EASY

There is limited parking at the Jaquith Rd entrance. More parking is available at the other end.

The footing is an old rail trail which ran in the late 1800s between Keene and Boston.

Lucky people who live near the trail. A great place for horseback riding, and biking.

On your right is an old borrow pit from the 1800s. Used to build up the railroad bed. Looks well used by bicycles.

My side of the Granite state doesn’t have the impressive erratics that are in this area of our wonderful state. Such fun to see them. And very impressive, the power that put them here. Even more on North Pond trail.

The trail wends through the woods, by a vernal pool, quite noisy as we walked by,  and opens up on a huge beaver, otter, muskrat pond. My Turkish Rusty still gets excited when he hears the frogs. I think he thinks it’s a gaggle of edible birds.

And, for a bit of contemplation and perhaps a little journalling…

Duke was on the Harris Center board. He and Nancy were married for 66 years. I highly recommend you google them.

Soon you hear the babbling of Nubanusit Brook.

Ahhhh

We started from the Jacquith Road entrance 1.4 miles from this bridge. There is a sit spot before the crossing. .Great place to enjoy the melodious brook.

Some interesting finds.

I am not an artist, but journalling is therapeutic.

Thank you John Muir Laws for inspiring me to journal.
