The New Hampshire Heritage Trail
The NHHT is a 230 mile walking path, from Massachusetts to Canada along the Merrimack, Pemigewasset, and Connecticut Rivers. The youth of New Hampshire and countless volunteers created this trail which links communities and diverse landscapes along its route. It tells the story of the state's rich and unique history, natural resources, culture and economy.
Whitefield Section of NHHT
The Whitefield section of the Heritage Trail starts at the Bethlehem-Whitefield town line on the south end of the Kimball Hill Road, near its intersection with Route 142, continuing on that road to Route 116 approximately three miles. Kimball Hill has some of the highest elevation agricultural land in New Hampshire.
The trail continues north a short distance on Route 116 to Crane Road. From there a short path crosses Bog Brook, avoiding the narrow bridge on 116, and continues into Whitefield Village about a mile, where a sidewalk tour of the village and town common is possible. An information booth is located in the bandstand and is open during the summer and fall seasons.
Continuing on 116 taking a left on Myrtle Street, then a right on Park Street leads you to the Park Street Cemetery, where the wooded section of the trail begins. Approximately two miles of existing ski and snow machine trails lead to the Mountain View Grand, a famous White Mountain resort built int he 1860's from an early farmhouse. There are outstanding view of the Presidential and Franconcia ranges, with the Pilot range and Mount Starr King to the northeast. Here the trail crosses Mountain View Road just west of the hotel and continues northerly less than a mile on existing ski trails to Route 3.
Less than a mile north and just beyond the White Mountains Regional High School entrance, a wooded trail begins at a rustic log cabin built by students on school property. School regulations state that pets must be kept on the trail, under control and all waste must be cleaned off trail and disposed of properly. It is about three-quarters of a mile to the Whitefield-Lancaster town line, marked on a tree.
Signs will direct hikers to the Lancaster section of the Heritage Trail across Black Brook (subject to high water) to Martin Meadow Pond Road and northerly to Weeks State Park and Mount Prospect, part of the Lancaster section of the Heritage Trail.
Our trail is open year round for hiking, snowshoeing, cross country skiing and portions are shared with snowmobile trails. Dress properly, as some areas are damp. Bring a camera and stay on the trail to avoid poison ivy. No camping or fires. Park at one of the designated parking areas and do sections of the trail system at a time.
