Awesome trail for all ages and abilities. Great views as well, but not really a hike more of a walk.

Nice trail though can be a bit too much traffic for bikes.

Nice path and Wolfeboro is a fun town to start from. The path is a little crowded with pedestrians and a little narrow, so you need to be careful.

Nice walk on dirt / gravel path along the lake and old railroad tracks. Great for biking or walking and offers very scenic views.

Great family trail, especially those with a pup! Just go with accurate expectations. This is less of a hike and more of a walk, but plenty to see and more to do downtown Wolfeboro either before or after your jaunt. Or, pack a picnic and spend some time at Albee beach along the way!

Well maintained with fabulous views - a little heavy with foot and other bike traffic, but early in am is best

If you're looking for a hard packed well groomed trail? This is the one to do. Its a rails to trails setup. There are several awesome scenes and the trail is laid with gravel for easy riding. Great trails for families or novice riders.
