Take a scenic hike to backcountry ponds, complete with swimming and blueberry picking, in New Hampshire’s second largest state park. Bear Brook State Park is an oasis of ponds, marshes, and deep pine forests in a corner of the state that is becoming increasingly populated.
As New Hampshire’s second largest state park (after the largely undeveloped Pisgah State Park), Bear Brook has something for everyone, including peaceful hiking, ponds and marshes, top-notch cross-country skiing, archery courses, fishing ponds, swimming holes, and an increasingly popular mountain bike culture.
