Kearsarge Valley Road – Lincoln Trailhead Open


The SRK Greenway Trailhead on Kearsarge Valley Road in North Sutton is now Open 

This is the trailhead for the Lincoln Trail (also referred to as SRK Greenway Trail #11) that goes up the west side of Mount Kearsarge. The Country Club of NH has finished their logging operation in that area. 

There is currently no active logging between Kearsarge Valley Road (point A) and Mastin Road (point B) and it is safe and open for hikers. However, the trail is difficult to follow due to the logging and it might be preferred to continue to use the Mastin Road re-route (see below).  

Please use common sense and caution in this section while the trail is re-established.
