Nice location for snowshoeing, too. Great place for winter afternoon.
If you like sailing, you have come to the right place. This is a nice place to relax, exercise, and bring your family. You will find the trails a great place to escape to from a busy week of work. It is a great place to heal.
This lake is a drinking water body of water, so there are signs posted everywhere, stating that you cannot swim, have pets swim, etc....thus if you are walking here with dogs (which is allowed), its tough to keep them out of the water (they can't read or choose not to read the signs). The trails are wide and nice. And the lake is a sight to behold. There are many different places to park and a variety of trailheads to choose from. A lovely spot close to downtown Manchester.
This is an excellent way to spend an afternoon. There are actually 2 trails. The first is if you park in the Massabesic Lake Parking lot and follow the trail which winds around the left side of the lake. The other is if you cross the street to the ball field side and walk south down 28 about 1/8 of a mile you will see another trail which goes off into the woods. This is the less travelled trail which winds in and out of wooded areas and along side the lake. I find this trail to be the more interesting of the two. Let me know what YOU think.
A nice trail to take a family trip. Just watch out for a lot of rocks and things I used to trip a lot when I was younger :)
