Piscassic River Wildlife Management Area – Exeter

Well, all of my hikes can’t be exciting and new. I’ve been utilizing the NH Wildlife Management Areas Map recently and have had a few wins with the Bellamy River WMA and the Deer Hill WMA. Not so much with the Piscassic River WMA that lies in Exeter, Newfields, and Epping.

I hate to use the word bored to describe a trip into the woods…but that’s what I was. The trail, more a class six road, was straight as an arrow and flat as could be. The WMA map showed several trails that no longer exist because of a recent logging operation so I ended up having to do an out an back.

I just yesterday updated the site to have a new rating system and will include them from now on in my posts. Well here it is: one fox.

These trails have brought to light another criteria that I need to use when rating trail systems: How likely is it that I will go back. With all of the other amazing trail systems that I have been finding recently it is not likely that I will head back to the Piscassic River WMA.
