HOOKSETT, NH –  Come meet another of your trails in Hooksett on Saturday, Sept. 22, from 8:30 to 10 a.m.

Head’s Pond Trail is a 2.9-mile trail of fairly level packed gravel with scenic views of Lakin’s Pond and Head’s Pond. It’s dog-friendly and bikeable, with parking at the entrance on Route 3/28 just north of Green’s Marine. The trail is carry-in, carry-out, so take a bag for dog waste. [See if you can find the dog-face rock just off the trail!]
A small group of community-minded residents are working to make Hooksett‘s recreational facilities known, used, and potentially improved. This is the group’s second “Meet Your” event in a series meant to increase awareness of Hooksett’s recreational facilities.

Celebrate National Public Lands Day on Sept. 22 with a walk!

Also, on Saturday, Sept. 15, at Hooksett Old Home Day, the group will be sharing a booth with the Hooksett Parks and Rec Advisory Board, where you can paint a Kindness Rock to be distributed at the trail to brighten people’s days as they find them.
