Enjoy a Perfect “Warm Weather” Day in Newfound
The warmer months are coming, and we are busy preparing for the summer. Be sure to make time for a hike or paddle to reconnect with this beautiful piece of paradise. Perhaps you are finalizing your summer plans and need a few suggestions. Here are some of our favorites….
Experience the “Quiet End” of Newfound Lake
Break out the kayaks and canoes and explore the quiet end of the Lake. Start your journey from the boat launch at Grey Rocks, located east of Hebron Village on North Shore Road. Watch for wildlife in the water and near the shore, then walk the trails and picnic on a view platform. See how many things you can identify or just enjoy the peaceful feeling.
