Nancy Brook Scenic Area Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Located in the heart of the White Mountain National Forest, this 8.6-mile round-trip excursion travels to a handful of the region’s less visible treasures. Along the way, enjoy the sparkling cascades, roaring brook, and secluded pond named for a young, fleeing woman who perished centuries ago during a mountain storm. Weave through an old-growth spruce-fir forest—a dense canopy of trees, some more than 200 years old. Venture to the west end of Norcross Pond and stand atop an edge of the sprawling Pemigewasset Wilderness. Rarely crowded, the Nancy Brook Scenic Area is the ideal destination for the mind to wander and the body to energize."
