Mount Washington Valley Recreation Path

TFMoran prepared the Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) and filed a Notice of Intent with the USEPA for Construction General Permit (CGP) coverage prior to the start of construction and performed SWPPP inspections during construction for the North Conway section of the Mount Washington Valley Recreation Path. This multi-use trail has three access points extending from Hemlock Ln. in North Conway to Cranmore Mountain Resort, with another trailhead at Thompson Road. Three bridges bring the path over wetland areas ranging from 48 feet, 96 feet and 148 feet long. The smallest crosses over Artist Brook near Thompson Road, the median over a tributary to Kearsarge Brook, and the largest over the northern end of Pudding Pond.

The North Conway section of the recreational path is open and available for use.

The North Conway Recreation Path is designed to provide opportunities for physical activity to improve fitness, mental health, and safe transportation alternatives. The 2.9 mile path will be a paved path supporting residents and guests of all ages and abilities with convenient parking at the Hemlock Lane trailhead (near Walmart), Cranmore Resort, and points in between. Walkers, joggers, bicyclists, and others will enjoy this multi-purpose scenic path and all that it offers along the way, including access to local businesses, and connections to the Pudding Pond and Sticks & Stones trailheads for hiking and mountain biking.

After this section is completed, we look forward to continuing the trail eastward towards Fryeburg to link to the Mountain Division Trail. We are also looking westward, planning a 1.6 mile section in Bartlett from Attitash Ski Area and Thorne Pond to the Bartlett School and Library. Eventually we will ‘close the gaps’ and link these short sections to form a continuous trail system, a ‘Linear Parkway’ that provides recreational opportunities to residents and visitors along the way.
