Goose Pond Loop is a 2.1 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Keene, NH that features a lake and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking and mountain biking and is accessible year-round.
Great easy little loop trail around a beautiful pond. Lots of songbirds and frogs! Note that part of the trail has been re-routed to avoid worsening erosion in one area. It can get a little confusing if you aren't paying attention to the blazes. Dogs are allowed on this trail. No swimming allowed in the pond.
Great loop around the pond with a little bit of climbing
Very nice walk, we did Dublin trail. Love it!
I have traveled this route a number of times over 50 years. Despite how busy the road is in any drivable season, it is a classic for scenery of mountains, forest, river, etc. It is spectacular in the fall, when it is incredibly busy. Somehow, word about New England foliage leaked out. In a good year, it is better than you've heard. In a bad year, it still beats almost anyplace else.
Growing up in New England, I have visited this region many times. It is beautiful any time, and spectacular in the fall. Lots to see, regardless of your interests, and lots of side hikes.
