About This Site

My wife and I like to get out for an afternoon walk and explore open spaces. When we first started walking together, we knew of only a few places in the Nashua area, and were frustrated at the difficulty of finding others. Over time we've discovered many more and decided to start this web site to share the information. This is an ongoing project. More trail sites, information, photos, and features will be added periodically.

Please respect private lands, and carry out what you carry in.
