What To Do

 

The Northern Gateway Region is far removed from the sleepy, postcard stereotype of 19th Century New England.

The area has a wonderful athletic energy, and the outdoor enthusiast can take advantage of backpacking, kayaking, fishing, letterboxinghiking, biking; and numerous winter sports, including skiing, snowshoeing, hunting guides, and ATV riding. Quieter activities such as foliage tours, fairs, and music festivals, and maple sugaring abound. An extraordinary experience is limited only by the traveler’s imagination!

The beauty of the region lies not only in its scenic grandeur, but also in its close proximity to fine dining and entertainment, both of which offer a perfect marriage of classic rural charm with a sense of modern progression and effervescence!

The Presidential Rail Trail is an abandoned 19 mile rail bed extending from Gorham, NH to the Pondicherry Wildlife Refuge in Jefferson, NH. Access can be had from either end as well as several parking areas along the route. The trail passes quietly through overhanging deciduous forests, past wetlands and beaver bogs, the Moose and Israel Rivers, and provides spectacular views of the Presidential Mountain range of the White Mountain National forest. Passing through the national forest, there is always the chance encounter of deer, moose, turkey, beaver, or porcupine, just to name a few of our more popular wildlife friends. Come and visit the Presidential Rail Trail for a quiet walk, run, bicycle ride, bird/wildlife watching. Visit our website for more information and events.
