The New Hampshire State Park Experience

Excerpt from our blog: "Starting on top of the Everett Dam, I took in a panoramic view of the lake and some of the trails that make up the park below. After getting my bearings I crossed the huge concrete dam on my bike and descended a trail that led along the banks of the west side of Everett Lake. The trail, an old logging road, was immediately flanked by water on both sides and gave a really cool feeling that you were almost riding on water."  To read more about Daniel's experience check out his blog post "Exploring Clough State Park."

Please note: the Everett Dam and the trails on the west side of Everett Lake are not part of Clough State Park (managed by the Army Corps of Engineers). Entry to Clough State Park beach and car-top boat launch may only be granted through the Clough Park Road entrance during operating hours.
