I love exploring new trails. The Fremont Trail in Peterborough has been on my to do list for a while. This week I had time to do some exploring. The trail is located on Old Jaffrey Road off Route 202 near Noone Falls. There is a small road where you can park near mailbox 100.. I did not see the trailhead closer to the road and started out the hike by walking down the old road that is all grass. Fortunately the trail looped around to the main trail through the field. The field is mowed so it is easy to follow.
You walk through the field enjoying the various wildflowers and plants.
If you look behind you, you get a glimpse of Pack Monadnock.
There is a small stream that you cross before heading into the woods. You walk through the woods and cross another small stream.
There is a slight incline. for for about a half mile as you walk through the woods. The trails are not marked, but they are easy to follow.
When you get to the to the top of the hill there is a fairly large cellar whole on your right.
As you turn right and head down a hill you reach a beaver pond. There is not a great view of the pond, but you can see part of it. It is also very buggy here. To the pond it is about 1.4 miles.
From here you turn back the way you came. Walking back out onto the field towards the end was very peaceful as you could hear the birds and smell all the plants and flowers.
This is a great trail for beginners, families with young children and anyone who want to get some time in the woods without much effort
