Wicwas Lake Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This popular fishing spot in New Hampshire’s Lakes Region provides calmer water than nearby larger lakes. Expect to see loon, waterfowl, great blue heron, deer, muskrat, and possibly beaver.
White pine, hemlock, and various hardwood species cover the heavily wooded shores. Most development occurs along the lake's southern arm near the access, although the northern shore along Route 104 also has a few dozen houses. The eastern section, especially the deep inlet behind the large island, provides the most remote paddling. We could just barely paddle around the marshy eastern side of the island the two times we paddled here, once in late May and once in late August in a high-water year."
