Heritage Trail, Lancaster NH
Contact info: 603-788-3239
The Lancaster portion of the NH Heritage Trail was completed and accepted by the State of NH in 1994. It is approximately 12 miles long, beginning at the Lancaster/Northumberland town line and winding its way through forests, gentle hills, and rural roads to the town line in Whitefield.
The southern terminus of the main trail has recently been moved (as approved by the State) from the Dalton town line to the Whitefield town line just behind the Regional School.
The trail is marked with brown “Heritage Trail” signs, and with yellow arrows painted on wood attached to trees. There is also a popular spur trail that circles the base of Mount Prospect State Park.
Walkers should be aware that there are muddy sections in the spring and early summer. Insect repellent and study footwear are a must for an enjoyable hike.
The Heritage Trail in Lancaster has eight (8) sections, each described in the detailed map below.
