Beaver Brook Falls Natural Area

Popular scenic hiking area.

Reviewed By hmckay76 - Colebrook, New Hampshire

This is one of many Natural Wonders in the area. Spring is a great time to catch the mighty magnificence of the falls, but it is truly beautiful in all seasons-even when almost frozen. There are hiking/walking trails and a little pavilion to have a relaxing lunch in the Great North Woods.

Amazing all the things they have in that one store! We got breakfast sandwiches there too and they were very good. The prices are better than Young's and I wish I would have gone here first. I would have saved a lot. I will definitely be going there first next time we are in the area.

Lake Francis State Park

Reviewed By Lauralanglois - Hudson, New Hampshire

We stayed here for half a week on recommendation from someone we met while vacationing in VA. Being in our own state, we figured we should try out the northern-est point in our state.

It's very quiet here and a fisherman's paradise. Campground is small. We stayed at site 20, with W/E, which is almost unheard of at a state campground in NH. Lots of ATVers in the area. It's THE thing to do. Place was central to hike out in the nowheres of NH.

Although they advertise "Moose Alley" l, there are NO moose to be seen on the roads at dusk or night. We've done. LOT of moose spotting over the years and the population is down because of ticks. There aren't hardly ANY "moshy" pits on the side of the roads here. We actually had to drive all the way to Dixville Notch to see ONE moose, although there are tracks everywhere.

Very clean campground. Showers are HIGH pressure, hot and among the cleanest we've seen. Staff is GREAT and helpful to point out good hiking & kayaking spots.

Garfield Falls

Reviewed By dickozski - Hooksett, New Hampshire

We like to get away to Pittsburg whenever we can. Theses something calming about the quiet seclusion. We hiked Magalloway Mountain and Garfield Falls on the same day. It's quite a drive down an old logging dirt road for about 12 miles.
It's about a 10 minute hike. All downhill to get to the falls but remember, on the way out it's all uphill. The air is so clean with the smell of pine.

Connecticut River

Reviewed By dmount2001 - Burlington, Vermont

The upper Connecticut River in Pittsburg NH is an outstanding example of a white water river and is known for its trout fishing. There are numerous places to pull over ad go down to the river and there are several parks and boat accesses.
The river starts within yards of the Canadian border north of Pittsburg in moose country. It wends its way through four lakes, aptly named Lake Number 4, Lake Number 3, etc. Four is the northernmost. As the river flows from 2 to 1 and from 1 to the flood control Lake Francis, there are numerous trout - browns and rainbows, There is also landlocked salmon and bass in the lakes. The river is accessible and fun to fish.

My husband, son and best friend went out for the first time in our lives with Russ for three thrilling days of snowmobile riding. We had come into the experience somewhat hesitant wondering whether a guide might hinder our adventure! To our wonderful delight not only did we feel absolutely supported in safety, called on for progressive ability and challenged, but it was a real blast. We all had complete confidence in Russ, our guide, mentor and now good friend, and highly recommend him for a thrilling snowmobile adventure.

Magalloway Mountain

Reviewed By Lauralanglois - Hudson, New Hampshire

First off: Make sure you take the Bobcat trail UP and the Coot trail down. It makes a nice loop and Coot would not the the trail to go UP.

The top was better than expected for the short hike up. There's a couple first cabins up there, a fire pit, and a great fire tower to climb and get a terrific view of the surrounding forests. There's a grassy area with a picnic table even and you could easily stay a couple hours up there. There's a couple short spurs that lead to great views at the top as well.

Make sure you have good directions, because the logging roads (that were well maintained) don't tell you much by way of signage to get there.
