The North Country has all of those ingredients, plus a vast collection of hiking trails that are as abundant as the region’s famed moose.
Luckily, the North Country is home to a seemingly endless amount of kid-friendly trails. Here are five of the best.
Table Rock Trail – Dixville Notch has several incredibly scenic hikes. The most popular is the Table Rock Trail. This short loop brings you to Table Rock, where you will enjoy stunning views from the ledge rising several hundred feet over a cliff. The eastern section of the trail up to Table Rock is steep, while the western section offers the easiest approach.
Falls in the River Trail – This trail beginning at Second Connecticut Lake offers an easy walk along the Connecticut River to a rocky, scenic cascade and gorge. Along the way you’ll cross wooden walkways through swampy areas and enjoy beautiful meadows along the river.
