Most of the yellow trail follows what seems to have been an old road or main logging road. The blue and red trails follow old ancillary logging roads. The trails reminded me very much of the Dalton Town Forest, also in North Hampton.

Old Logging Road Trails

This was one of the first hikes that my one year old was able to explore on his own two feet. It was very toddler friendly as the old logging roads were mostly level with little elevation gain and few tripping hazards. Although there were a few rogue roots along the way.
