December Hike in Concord. Come and Join Us !

With the onset of winter, our hikes will now be switching to flatter ground. Our next hike will be Saturday December 7th at 10:00 AM. We will be hiking Batchelder Mill Road Trails and parking at the N. Curtisville Road parking area. This historic area contains the remains of possibly the oldest dam in Concord and a brick making area from the 1800’s.

How to Get There. Take Exit 16 off Route 93 onto West Portsmouth St. Turn right if you came from Route 93 North (Left if you came from Route 93 South) and take the first right in the rotary onto East Side Drive. Turn left onto North Curtisville Road in 1/2 of a mile. The parking area is at the end of North Curtisville Road, also about 1/2 of a mile.

Our Fifth Hike !

The OLLI Concord Area Hiking Group was treated to a clear, crisp Saturday morning as we hiked two different trails. Our second hike up Great Hill in Nottingcook Forest in Bow had views all the way from Mt. Monadnock to the west to Mt. Washington in the north.
