Piscassic Greenway, Newfields, NH

Piscassic Greenway in Newfields, NH is a special place for Golden Dog Adventure Co. Club Members. Every Thanksgiving Day morning, Club members meet for a hike at this beautiful trail. Then they gather on the bridge to relax with their dogs and share what they are thankful for. This event has always been the perfect start to a day of family time and celebration.

Southeast Land Trust of NH (SELT), acquired the 316-acre Piscassic Greenway in April 2006 after a nearly two year partnership with the Town of Newfields and the Trust for Public Land. The Piscassic Greenway abuts the Cole Farm and the two properties are managed as one ownership.

Please note that you will be crossing a large bridge over water. If this makes your dog nervous, this is a great training opportunity to get them comfortable with this type of crossing.

Occasionally, we will continue on beyond the bridge for an extended walk. Check the trail map for more info. 

On the bridge, there are several benches. It is a great spot to sit, relax, and enjoy a picnic while admiring the beauty of the pond. In warm weather, you may see several snakes and turtles sunning themselves on rocks and longs around the pond. Please do not allow your dog to approach for their safety and the safety of wildlife.
