Snowshoe Trail – Epping, NH

Took a short walk on the snowshoe trail in Epping, New Hampshire today. I’m calling it the snowshoe trail for lack of any other information about it online besides what I gleaned from openstreetmaps’ trail layer. This was one that I wasn’t overly optimistic about. It seemed short on strava with only the openstreetmap trail map showing a trail. No strava data at all. Although it was short, about a 1/2 mile, it really surprised me.

It was along the Lamprey River and was beautiful! I don’t know that I’ll be going back to visit any time soon but it was a nice short hike for a cold day.

We saw a lot of evidence of beaver along the banks. A few busy beaver had made some good progress on a red oak on the opposite bank.

The river was flowing well with nice layering of ice above and below the surface of the water.
