        Cruise Lake Winnipesaukee on the Mount Washington


        Image: https://cruisenh.com

        The Lakes Region is unique for countless reasons. One of those reasons is the Mount Washington.

        The 230 foot long tour vessel features four levels and is part of the quintessential Lake Winnipesaukee experience. People can board the Mount Washington from one of five ports throughout the Lakes Region: Wolfeboro, Weirs Beach, Alton Bay, Center Harbor, or Meredith. Once aboard, passengers begin their expedition into the vast 72 square miles of magnificence known as Lake Winnipesaukee. Throughout the duration of the cruise, passengers can listen to the captain over the loudspeaker state interesting facts about the vessel, the lake, and some of the lake's 240 habitable islands. Passengers can also enjoy occasional friendly waves from boaters and people in the yards of their waterfront properties. 

        The Mount Washington offers foods, drinks, and a range of cruise ship events to partake in depending on individual interests. For more information about the Mount Washington including ticket prices, departure times and ongoing events, visiting their website by clicking here

        Click here to read this great article from The Boston Globe, "Seeing Lake Winnipesaukee from the M/S Mount Washington is a N.H. must-do" for a more in depth account as to what an experience is like on the Mount Washington.

               The town of Wolfeboro has been provided with fresh and local foods from nearby farmers for the past seventeen years. Over this time the variety of locally sourced foods has expanded, along with the number of vendors. As the days start to become longer and the temperature rises, the farmers market locates outdoors to Clark Park, where the farmers set up to share their fresh produce to service the Wolfeboro community and other neighboring towns.             

                

               When you visit the Wolfeboro’s Farmers Market, you will be greeted by the sound of live music, along with the liveliness and excitement of the community enjoying themselves in the markets up lifting atmosphere.  Even when the sun is not shining the market will still carry on rain or shine! When you look around what the market has to offer, you will find everything from local meats, eggs, wild forged mushrooms, vegan ice cream, gluten free baked goods, and fresh picked flowers.       

                                                       

               Looking at all the delicious produce may make you hungry, luckily the market offers healthy lunch options such as south Indian meals or fresh fish tacos! Stretch out on the lawn or picnic benches to enjoy your fresh food.  The Wolfeboro summer farmers market is not only a great experience, but also a good opportunity to help support local farmers, while filling your fridge with healthy in season produce! So head out to experience the Wolfeboro Farmers Market for yourself on Thursdays this summer, and guarantee you will leave a happy customer!

        The Wolfeboro Rail Trail

             Over a century ago, New England was intertwined by dozens of railroad lines, competing with

        each other to transfer people and items to and from towns. In 1868 a railroad was built among lakes,

        ponds, streams, and woods, with a plan to incorporate another way of travel out of remote Wolfeboro.

        Before the railroad was built, most of the visitors traveled by train only being able to arrive as far as

        Alton Bay or Weirs, then would continue by a steamer to Wolfeboro. The addition of the railroad

        changed the pace of the little community and increased tourism forming Wolfeboro into a buzzing

        summer resort town. Once freight service became unprofitable the station decided to close the line.

        One hundred and fifty years later the railroad is still occupied and running but in an alternative way. Laid

        out within and alongside the historical tracks, gravel paths were assembled to bring the once running

        trails alive and active again.

                                             

             The plans were put to action in 1992 to create recreational trails and the first of many miles

        were assembled to establish the Cotton Valley Rail-Trail. Adventure seekers, families, outdoor

        enthusiasts, and athletes of all ages visit and incorporate the rail-trail into their daily routines. The

        Cotton Valley Rail-Trail supports many hobbies and activity’s throughout all four seasons. If you’re tough

        enough to brave the bone-chilling New England winter weather, you may encounter people Nordic

        skiing, mushing, snowshoeing, or snowmobiling. As soon as the rail-trail thaws and summer approaches

        bikers, runners, walkers, and wildlife watchers populate the trail while discovering the beautiful

        landscape along the way.

         

             The Cotton Valley Rail-Trail is a continuous twelve mile multiuse trail that begins at the eastern

        shores of Lake Winnipesaukee in Wolfeboro, NH and ends in Sanbornville, NH’s restored railroad

        Turntable Park. Along the first half of the rail-trail starting in downtown Wolfeboro, you will go past Back

        Bay where benches are placed by the water perfect for watching the water ski competitions or remote

        control sailboat regatta’s. You will see breathtaking views of the mountains on the waters horizon as you

        cross Lake Wentworth that will make you want to stop to admire the vista’s beauty. You will come

        across Albee Beach, Wolfeboro’s public beach where stopping for a swim, bathroom break, or a seat on

        one of their picnic benches in the shade may be convenient. Continuing on the trail you’ll find Fernald

        Crossing, another train station that’s been preserved by the members of the Cotton Valley Rail-Trail

        Club. The club is joined by local railroad enthusiasts in the town who came together in 1992 to pursue

        their hobby in railway motor cars. The club not only runs these motor cars on the railroad, but also have

        devoted their time to preserve the property and equipment maintaining the railway so they can

        continue operating the cars, so don’t be alarmed if you hear a train coming!

                                                           

             Passing by Fernald Crossing the trail becomes less populated by people and more populated by

        woodland and wildlife. The tranquil setting of the forest and reduced business creates a venturesome

        atmosphere for the remainder of the trail. Among the trees you may spot single-track trails just after

        Fernald Crossing where Wolfeboro Singletrack have begun to build a multi-use trail system designed for

        mountain biking. Following the trails heavily wooded path may provide an opportunity to encounter a

        verity of New Hampshire wildlife along the way. Brooks, ponds, and marches throughout the trail

        provide homes and resources for the wild animals. If you’re lucky you may occasionally spot beavers

        building their dam, blue herons perched by the water’s edge, Bufflehead ducks, turtles sunning on a log,

        or geese. If you’re on the trail early in the morning theirs a likelihood of a passing glance at deer, black

        bear, fox, or moose before dashing off into the woods. If you feel like taking a break or resting by the

        scenic wetlands along the rail trail, benches and occasional picnic benches are provided throughout the

        trail close to every mile.

         

             From Cotton Valley Road to the end of the trail you’ll spot more wetlands and brooks as you

        travel towards Sanbornville. You’ll continue to wind you’re way through more green and quite

        woodland. At the end of the trail you’ll reach Turntable Park where the historical rail-road turn table still

        remains. Once used as a device for turning locomotives so they could be moved back in the direction

        from which they came from, a great destination to end you’re twelve mile trip.

         

             The Cotton Valley Rail-Trail wasn’t always twelve miles long. In 2014 the completion of two

        miles of the rail trail by the Wakefield and Brookfield Trails Rails actions Committee was celebrated with

        a ribbon cutting. The final two miles marked the completion of the Cotton Valley Rail-Trail and joined

        two trails together to be used as one. The trail originally connected from its occurring location in Back

        Bay and ended six miles later at Cotton Valley road where the trails were connected. Wakefield, NH

        completed the two miles of rail-trail from Turntable Park to Clark Road in Brookfield, NH. The

        construction was a two year effort. Without the Cotton Valley Rail Trail Club, volunteers, fundraisers,

        and organizations the rail-trail wouldn’t be the beautiful trail it is today and for generations to come.

                                              

             The Cotton Valley Rail-Trail has a lot to provide. From the fantastic glimpses of railroad history

        to its mountainous backdrops, lakes, countless ponds, and wildlife, the rail-trail provides you with the

        whole Lakes Region experience. Many visitors from around the world have come to Wolfeboro and

        experienced this trail and what it has to offer. Whether you’re spending you’re day on the trail, going on

        an adventure, or commuting to work, you’ll find the Cotton Valley Rail-Trail has a friendly charm and

        clean attractiveness creating a sense of community no matter where you came from. The rail-trail has

        carried and navigated passengers long-ago, today, and will continue doing so for many years to come.
