Nubanusit Lake and Spoonwood Pond Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Explore this crystal clear lake to see a bald eagle nest, ride a thrilling rope swing, and take a small portage to a hidden pond with backcountry campsites. Nubanusit Lake’s geology and topography make for the clearest waters we’ve seen on any lake in New Hampshire.

While it can get busy on a hot summer day, it is a big lake and there are secluded corners to which you can retreat. And, if you are willing to do a 100-foot portage, you can paddle Spoonwood Pond, which offers all of the beauty, clear water, and granite slabs of Nubanusit Lake without any motorboats."
