easy trail. my dog loved it

Very nice and easy family walk with some beautiful views of the pond. If you need a warm-up trail or just something to change it up this is a very nice option

Nice easy trail. Great scenery around the lake. Lots of places to stop and sit on benches and picnic tables along the way. My son and I had a great time.

Great easy trail for kids who enjoy throwing rocks in the water (mine). Picnic tables and benches make great stops for breaks with kids. Trail is well used by horses, so just dodge the poop!

I hike here often. It is an easy hike & a lovely area. There are some alternatives for getting to the pond- the Hutchins Orchard Trail, which runs parallel to the dirt road is one. The access to this trail is on the right a ways down the wide road that leads to the pond. This trail is in the woods and much more interesting than the road to the pond. I love that there is also a handicapped access trail that runs parallel to the dirt road, through the woods, that allows anyone in a chair to access the area. Once at the pond, the loop around is lovely & there are picnic benches located around the pond with scenic views.

Great Signage!

Love this trail. took my dog and she love it as well. They need to do some clean up some trees fall down but other then that. great and easy trail.

Beautiful all year round! One of my favorite places!

Beautiful spot!

Great easy trail with nice places to stop and let our puppy cool off. Not at all crowded.

Easy walk, all accessible trail .Has a picturesque pond, with picnic tables and benches.

I’m sure this trail is much better not washed out, but it is pretty washed out from the storm a few weeks ago

Favorite local place to go and connect with nature. Trail running, walking, and easy hiking for the young as well.

I am upset about horses on the trail. Horse poop everywhere even in the water.

A lot of horse manure though and there is a lot of dog poop at the beginning of the trail. I love that bags and trash bin is available for me to pick up my dog's poop. Usually, my girl goes potty in the woods off trail.

I really enjoy this area..it's to bad people don't know how to read the "dogs must be on a leash " sign..it'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).

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.

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!
