Cotton Valley Rail Trail Professional Review and Guide
"A gem of a bike trip meets a paddle to a secluded island nature preserve. Enjoy plenty of wildlife viewing and a public beach, too! The beautiful little town of Wolfeboro, its three lakes, its countless ponds, and its mountainous backdrop have attracted vacationers to its lakeshores for centuries. Biking the scenic Cotton Valley Rail Trail gives you the full Lakes Region experience as it takes you past (and sometimes across) Lake Winnipesaukee (the largest lake in New Hampshire), Back Bay (an inlet of Winnipesaukee), Crescent Lake, and 3,000-acre Lake Wentworth."
