Outdoor Play Book

Local Sunapee author, Stephen Priest, has recently published his latest book Outdoor Play Hiking New Hampshire’s Sunapee-Ragged-Kearsarge Greenway — 75-miles on a fourteen trail loop.

The SRK Greenway organization is flattered that Steve has devoted the time and energy to create this book about his adventures on the SRK Greenway. But, please understand it is not a replacement for the official SRK Guidebook.

Steve recommends the eBook version to be able to not only get the written content; but, also take advantage of the video narrative that can accompany each chapter. The videos make the hike “come alive” — in a fun way. The book is also available in a paperback version at local bookstores.

Each of the 14 trail sections found in the SRK Guidebook are detailed further in the Outdoor Play book and discussed in length with details from his hikes, pictures and helpful suggestions from Steve.

The mission of this trail narrative is “to inspire and encourage families and individuals to make outdoors a key component of their daily lives.” Steve goes on to explain that he “used the SRK Greenway Trail Guide throughout all fourteen hikes… as a continual reference“.

Steve Priest lives in Sunapee NH and is the author of 10 books – most focused around outdoor play. Steve is also the producer of community television outdoor documentaries and videos.

The Greenway and COVID-19

The SRK Greenway has seen a huge increase in hiker traffic during the COVID-19 pandemic. We think this is great. But, please respect your fellow hikers and provide lots of distance, wear a mask when appropriate and be patient when you encounter another hiking group.

Hiking and spending time in the woods is a great way to stay healthy while maintaining safe distances from others. We encourage everyone to take a hike on the SRK Greenway. Our main objective is to provide a network of local hiking trails in the Lake Sunapee area.

No Group hikes this Fall

Due to the pandemic, the SRK Greenway does not feel comfortable leading any group hikes this Fall. We encourage you to hike on your own and with your family. As always, please be courteous of other hikers.
