Local Weather for Nottingham N.H.


My second most easy cache in the park.
An easy just off the road hike.
A Great Quite & scenic area. Really Cool place! I'm betting most will Love it here.
Don't forget your camera.
The cache is a medium sized tupperware container, filled with useful items for the young and the old. To record your visit, there is a camera & logbook, hand drawings are encouraged.
No Bushwacking involved. Hiding spot is close to a well established trail.
The cache is well hidden & mostly covered but sharp eyes will see it without digging around.
**Known to be a very busy area!
**Please keep it well hidden.
ThankYou!

Although It is only about two minutes away from the parking area give yourself x-tra time to explore, as there is plenty to see.

If your into climbing you may want to bring some equipment there are many things to climb.
There are also a few great picnic areas by the pond.
Enjoy the Hikes Hunts & Views!

Driving-Directions/Conditions

Map for Pawtuckaway Mountains in Nottingham N.H.

Enter off NH Route 107 The Road your looking for is Reservation Road, heading North it will be on your right. Signs & road names from there are pretty much non-exsitent but if you use My Custom map linked on this page you should have a good head start.

* If Your Camping at Pawtuckaway you can also access the Mountains from 2 points on the Campground ground access road but it will add 1 to 1 1/2 hours to your hike.
* You could also get there from the Boat Launch but again it's like a 1 hour add to the hike and Parking reachs capacity early.
* Many have came in off Deerfield Rd. but I have heard through others that they can sometimes Ticket so beware.

* The main Access road around the Mountains is NOT plowed in the Winter, it is only partialy maintained in the other 3 seasons but heavy rain can wipe out 3 steep areas (1 near South Mnt & 2 a mile before Round Pond) and there not always quick to repair.
Many small compacts get all the way in on a regular basis.
I would try it, even after heavy rain but that's me, GoodLuck!

* All trails & the Access Road can be ridden by snowmobiles in the winter EXCEPT those trails on North & South Mountain.

Start your GPSr near the pond & begin your search.

GoodLuck!
