Fall Hike & Bird Watching

Fall Hike & Bird Watching

Join us for a fall hike and bird watching! We will climb South Uncanoonuc via Summit Trail and Walker Trail, which is a 2.3 mile moderately trafficked loop trail in Goffstown, NH that features a lake and is good for all skill levels. The loop trail that leads around the sides of the mountain provides access to five fine ledge outlooks. Although it is tiny even compared to southern NH hills, the prominence and isolation of the two Uncanoonucs make them landmarks on the horizon when seen from nearly anywhere in the state. Smaller hikers are welcome to simply play at the base of the mountain and by the lake.

Trailhead is at the end of Mountain Base Road in Goffstown, NH. Take Wallace Road from a traffic circle on Rt. 114, 0.6 miles east of the southern junction of Rt. 13 and Rt. 114 and 3.2 miles west of Rt. 114A. Drive 1.5 miles down Wallace Road and turn right onto Mountain Base Road. Follow it 0.9 miles to its end at the lake and park at the small dirt parking area near the kiosk.

Pack birding binoculars if you have them, nature journals if you use them, some hiking snacks, water, and a picnic lunch.
