SCENIC DRIVES AND WALKS

BIKING: As you may already know, we have free adult sized loaner bikes.  (Please sign a waiver before taking them) Just behind us is the famous Bridge Falls path that goes between the downtown Train Station and Albee Beach on Lake Wentworth (and beyond).  Sewall Road (starts next to the Wolfeboro Inn) along the lake is a nice ride past 19th century lakefront masterpiece homes. You might also consider the Profile Trail from the base of Cannon Mt to the Flume (about an hour and a half drive, but WELL worth it.) There are some wonderful bike rides around here… or see Rails-Trails novice rides… but for additional information on a whole different level,  I would check in with Nordic Skiier in town for the best routes, but you can also contact LikinBikin  in Alton (but they are more Mountain Biking). 

BEACHES:

Wolfeboro Free Broad Sand Public Beaches:

  • Brewster Beach – .1/2  Mile (10 minutes walk past downtown across Brewster Academy Fields on the left side of Wolfeboro Bay) Broad Sunny Sand, waves, docks &  Raft for swimming, great for families with Teenagers.
  • Albee Beach – 2 Miles ( 3 minute drive or 30 minute walk on Bridge Falls Path) Pines, Picnic Tables, and Grills that come right to the beach for shade, long shallow and slope into the lake, best for families with kids under 12 and for night strolls

Wentworth State Park Beach – fee (10 minute drive) check the website.  Gorgeous location and amenities…

HIKING/WALKING:  Hiking: There are multiple opportunities for some spectacular HIKES all around us…  Because we are in the mountains and on this gorgeous lake, places like Tumble Down Dick, Bald Knob, Rattlesnake Mt and Mt. Major are all relatively short hikes with spectacular views… this is from the top of Mt. Major which is a 20 minute drive from us.

  • Abenaki Fire Tower - Climb one of the last remaining Historic Fire Towers for a spectacular 360 view of the lake and mountains (30 minutes away and 10 minutes to the top)
