Outdoor Fun in Londonderry’s Winter

Feb 16, 2013 No Comments by

With snow comes one of the favorite past time in Londonderry, New Hampshire; sledding. We have wonderful locations in town. Always practice safe sledding. Make sure you wear a long sleeve shirt, and a heavy coat, and zip it up. Also wear a scarf, hat and hood. You should also wear gloves. The reason for this is because snow is going to get sprayed on you as you go down, and you don’t want to freeze!

If you’re going really fast and you know you’re going to wipe out, in general, depending on the situation, it’s good to go loose. When the body’s moving fast, there is less chance of injury if it’s loose and the muscles are relaxed, as opposed to tense. So if you know you’re going to wipe out, relax and enjoy.

Most importantly have Fun!

With all of the snow falling in Londonderry these past few days the trails have become winter wonderlands for snow shoeing, and cross country skiing. Londonderry has one of the largest cross country ski trails in Southern New Hampshire. The trail was groomed and ready to go.

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 South orchard loop one eighth of a mile 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.

Snowmobile and ATV traffic is not allowed on the trails or the property.
