Furnace Brook Trail

IMG_3705.JPG

Located near the Souhegan Ambulance and at the base of Old Tenney Road in New Ipswich is a nice little path that follows Furnace Brook.  The trail was donated by a family that lives in New Ipswich.  The path starts out going down into the woods along the stream to the base of a small waterfall and part of an old rock wall.  This is a perfect spot to let your dog get a swim in if there is enough water.  Then the trail continues down along the stream for about a mile.  There is a snowmobile bridge that goes off to your left and a field on your right, both which are private property. This is a trail that you walk to the snowmobile trail and field and then turn around and walk back. The last time I was on the trail, in 2017, there were a lot of blowdowns  I'm not sure if anyone maintains the trail anymore.  If you are up for exploring the trail, I recommend long pants as there are some trees with thorns and some blowdowns the climb over.
