Northwood Meadows State Park spans 674.5 acres in a wilderness setting. This wooded park has a vast wetlands area and is excellent for nature walks and picnicking. The park includes a pond created by a dammed brook - a popular place for fishing and non-motorized boating. The easily accessible trails also make the park an ideal place for biking, hiking, snowmobiling, and cross-country skiing.

nice walk level ground easy for all.

I really enjoy this's to bad people don't know how to read the "dogs must be on a leash "'s really unfair to people who are uncomfortable with loose dogs

Nice little trail. I did the lake trail loop (from door to door about 1.7 miles).

Easy ride with random technical sections, great for building skills

The main roads are a nice walk and there are a lot of side trails to take to increase the distance and/or sights. Can get to Saddleback MTN from here. We live nearby so we're here a lot.

Nice leisurely walk around a pretty lake. Very dog friendly. A cute diner across the street from the parking area to grab a meal and a drink afterwards.

I just walked around the pond it would have been nicer if there wasn't Horse manure all over the ground and in the water other than that it's a beautiful walk

Northwood meadows in NH are amazing trails to walk

Very easy little walk in the woods with great views of the pond that the trails encompass. Very dog friendly trail; on an average day, half the people walking the trails are walking their dogs. Clean trails that aren't very well marked, yet the trails are easy enough to follow that it shouldn't be a problem. Even though the park is right next to route 4, there isn't any noise from the highway, and the trail traffic isn't too high. I'd say if you're in the area and looking for a quick, quiet, little get away, it's worth a stop.

This is a nice quiet trail that loops around a pond, offering many scenic views. Great walk in all weather conditions and seasons. You can also access The Saddleback Mountain trail which is an out and back hike to one of highest points in Northwood. This is a dog friendly trail. Currently there is some logging between the meadows trail and the Saddleback trail. Happy hiking!
