More Hikes Scheduled. Come and Join Us !

On Saturday October 19th at 10:00 AM we will walk the Oak Hills Trails. These beautiful trails are somewhat more rugged, but the views are worth the walk. We will walk about 2 1/2 miles and it will take about two hours.

How to get there: Take exit 16 off 93 North. Turn right on West Portsmouth Street and at the rotary go three quarters around till you are heading north on Mountain Rd. The third street on your right. 0.3 miles from the rotary, is Shaker Road. Take Shaker Road 2.3 miles. On the right hand side of Shaker Road is the parking lot for the Oak Hills Hiking Trails.

The November hike will be on Saturday November 16th at 10:00 AM. This hike will be sort of two in one. First we will hike to the top of Pinnacle Park in Hooksett, NH for a beautiful view over the Merrimack River, then drive a short distance to Nottingcook Forest in Bow for a short hike. Is the day is clear, the view from Nottingcook Forest is all the way to Mount Washington! More details to follow.

Our third OLLI Concord Area Hiking Group hike was Winant Park Trails. The cooler fall weather and relatively bug free day made for great hiking. COME JOIN US!!!! Use the contact page to add your name to our mailing list.
