We explored the Piscassic Greenway (not to be confused with the lesser Piscassic River WMA) today. It was cold, snowy, and blustery.
I have explored these trails previously having found them while biking on the Rockingham Rail Trail. After finding the trail map on SELTs website we headed over the trailhead on Bald Hill Rd in Newfields. We had never gone in from this direction so I was excited to explore some new trails in this area.
Unfortunately because of the weather the hike felt rather rushed. The trails are beautiful crossing some streams on well built bridges, going through giant hemlock groves and weaving past and through old stonewalls.
The trails do continue further north to Schanda Dr in Newmarket. I’ll have to head back at some point to check it out.
The one point of caution that caught me by surprise on an earlier trip was the ‘winter access only’ trail Neal Mill Rd. I’ve never been able to cross here, and I’m assuming with the warm winter we’ve been having that it is still not passible at this point.
