    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

    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.

      Wolfeboro's New Singletrack!

                                                                                   

                                                               

           Through the beautiful town of Wolfeboro runs the Cotton Valley Rail-Trail, where you can see all that Wolfeboro has to offer, along with neighboring towns. One of Wolfeboro's newest additions that can be found along this trail is the Wolfeboro Singletrack Alliance. Another destination where recreational activities can be enjoyed. Wolfeboro Singletrack is a non-profit organization that is developing multi-use singletrack trails designed for mountain biking and non-motorized users. The trails are located in multiple locations, one of the locations being off the Cotton Valley Rail Trail's Fernald Station, located off Governor John Wentworth Highway. Other locations throughout Wolfeboro where you can find singletrack is Abenaki Ski area, or Sewall Woods.

                                                                       

           For those who don't know you may be wondering what is singletrack? Singletrack is a type of mountain biking trail that is made for the width of one bike. It is smooth, but may have technical rocky sections, banked turns, go over tree routs, hills, or jumps. Many mountain bikers prefer single tack, as singletrack is designed specifically for the sport, and has elements mountain bikers would opt for. The Wolfeboro Singletrack Alliance has been maintaining and planning to build more trails throughout Wolfeboro since 2018. They say their mission is "to work with land managers to ensure access to well built sustainable trails, while protecting the environment at the same time" and "envisioning Wolfeboro as a destination with an expanding network of sustainable trails". If you like exploring New Hampshires beautiful woodlands, this recreational resource will be an excellent location for you. You can click here to read more about the trails and the Wolfeboro Singletrack organization!
