The Loon Nest Trail (1½ miles)
The Loon Nest Trail allows visitors to experience the natural beauty of upland forests, marshes, clear streams and close to a mile of pristine shoreline. Follow Halfway Brook through mixed woodlands toward the lakeshore. Squeeze between giant granite “glacial erratic” boulders, sit and enjoy Lake Winnipesaukee from several vantage points, and skirt the edge of a thriving marsh before returning to The Loon Center. Or, walk to the views and back for a shorter trip. Sturdy footwear is recommended for those who want to walk the entire trail. Wildlife viewing opportunities abound on both trails – you may even catch a glimpse of our resident pair of loons!
