Snow Coming! Cross Country in Londonderry!

Feb 28, 2012 No Comments by

The Mack’s Apples trail is one of the most popular here in town. Groomed throughout the winter, the trail is great for snowshoeing and cross-country skiing, or just taking a short hike through the snow-sprinkled trees. Circling orchards and cutting through trees, the trail can be accessed easily from Mack’s U-Pick 2 on Adams Road or Mack’s U-Pick 1 on Pillsbury Road.

The North Orchard Loop is one-sixth of a mile; on the west side you will pass by semi-dwarf apple trees, on the east side the decades-old mature apple trees are bordered by the town forest. Crossing the orchard access road nearby where Mack’s U-pick 1 would be, a down hill run through the now dormant pumpkin field will bring you to the wetlands crossing.

The three-quarter mile connector path will take you through a pine and hardwood canopy. With Adams pond on your right, cross the bridge over the dam rebuilt by Londonderry Trailways. This will take you to the one-eighth of a mile South Orchard Loop ringing the edge of Mack’s U-Pick 2. To the south of the groomed cross country ski trail, you will travel along the edge of Adams Road, a New Hampshire scenic roadway. The X-Country trail runs between large old maples and the orchard.

Trail grooming for cross country skiing is performed as snow conditions permit. Conditions may vary at different times so users should ski at their own risk. Snowmobile and ATV traffic is not allowed on the trails or the property. In winter, walkers or snowshoers should be careful not to walk on the groomed tracks.

Be sure to watch this video of the trails being groomed last year!
