One of my favorite trails is the Elwell Trail starting at Newfound Lake in Bristol, NH.
You can hike to several small mountains and back or complete the 14 mile trek all the way to Mt Cardigan, as many do.
One of the neat things about this hike is the Wolf santuary near Mt Oregan.
Some hikers camp there just to listen to the wolves howl back and forth all night.
I've been thru there during the day and it sounds like there are a hundred of them out there. Kinda freaks my cocker spaniel out.
Anyway, the trail has recently been remarked in yellow and several maps are available online or you can use the AMC Mt Cardigan map.
Check it out this summer. I will probably see you out there since it's part of my stomping grounds.
