Annett Wayside Park
Annett Wayside Park is part of the 1,494 acre Annett State Forest and is located near the Cathedral of the Pines National Shrine. It is a beautiful spot for picnicking. A 1/4 mile hiking trail offers a pleasant stroll to the edge of Black Reservoir.
NOTE: The Division of Parks and Recreation is providing notice and seeking comment on a proposal to demolish the Annett Wayside toilet building and associated structures. The site will be returned to its natural state after demolition. The facility constructed in 1969 has not been open to public use for the past 10 years. Comment can be emailed to Johanna.Lyons@dred.nh.gov.
This park is always open for recreation unless closed or restricted by posting. During the off-season the park is typically not staffed and comfort stations are not available.
The off-season poses unique risks inherent when participating in outdoor recreational activities. Please be aware that many State Park areas and trails are not staffed during the off-season, and day-use fees are not collected. Recreationists should possess the necessary knowledge, skill, and equipment to ensure their own safety. Users assume all risk while recreating in State Park lands.
