Hiking Phillips Memorial Preserve New London, NH

 The Phillips Memorial Preserve, New London, NH, is part of the NL Conservation Commission trail system. 

The Shore Loop Trail is on a wooded hillside between Goose Hole Pond and Otter Pond.  The trail is readily marked with a YOU ARE HERE notation map and trapezoid-shaped direction arrows at all intersections.  Trail highlights include a notable view of Mount Sunapee and Lake Sunapee and access to Otter Pond. The trail leaves from the parking area alongside Goose Hole Road, climbs by an old stone quarry, then reaches the top of the hill. Good views toward Lake Sunapee are seen from the trail as it heads down toward Otter Pond. At the trail intersection toward the bottom of the hill, a turn to the right takes one to the edge of the pond and a turn to the left goes back to the parking area. The trail is about a mile in length. Enjoy the below three-minute video.
