This ride's general location is 6 miles north of Henniker on NH 114. Scenery ranges from lake to mountainside. Bring along a bathing suit, or some tracing paper and charcoal. After a tough climb on double-track, a swooping descent on dirt, and a speedy return on the highway, you're gonna be dirty and sticky. What better than a refreshing dip?
Rental boats are available too. Along this ride you'll pass by several abandoned farms, as evidenced by the stone fences, cellar holes, and large, hardwood trees. Along the way lies one of New Hampshire's forgotten rural cemeteries with the kind of gravestones you won't find at the local Rock Of Ages showroom.
