"This pleasant, relatively flat trail, through Mad River Notch, was the first snowshoe hike we ever completed. We began on the Kancamagus Highway side, meandering through sun-dappled woods until we reached the set of gorgeous mountain ponds.
For little effort, you get a touch of mountain wilderness and pristine winter scenery. In Lincoln, a popular tourist town, you’ll find a variety of shops, restaurants, and lodgings. There are also a handful of outdoor guide and gear outfits, where you can sign up for a guided trip into the woods, rent snowshoes, pick up maps, and get trail information. If you have downhill ski enthusiasts in your group, there are several alpine ski resorts in the area."
