Lincoln

Travel Guide
Lincoln which includes a small town or village
Whether you’re skiing the slopes of Loon Mountain or swimming in Lonesome Lake, this New Hampshire town is a nature lover’s paradise in any season.

Among New England’s charming small towns, Lincoln stands out. Visit when the town is blanketed in snow or bursting with colourful foliage. Lincoln is delightful in all seasons.

Lincoln has a portion of Franconia Notch State Park. Explore the beauty of the White Mountains on the miles of hiking, biking and skiing trails winding through the park.

Walk to Flume Gorge, a stunning natural gorge in the park. It stretches 800 feet (240 metres) to the base of Mount Liberty. Follow the boardwalk to the edge of its plummeting granite walls. The hike ends at the Visitor Centre with a gift shop and Concord Coach stagecoach that charged across the old west.

Visit Lonesome Lake nestled in the park at the southern base of Cannon Mountain. Reach it via hiking short, accessible trails. The lake is well stocked with brook trout.

Hike a portion of the Appalachian Trail, which crosses through the northeastern part of the town. The Appalachian Mountain Club hut on Lonesome Lake’s southern shore provides shelter for hikers. Loon Mountain, a part of the White Mountain National Forest, is Lincoln’s signature peak. Loon Mountain Ski Resort is one of the most popular resorts in the state. Regardless of when you visit, enjoy its all-season fun from skiing to horseback riding to rock climbing.

Head to Whale’s Tale Water Park for summer fun for the entire family. Splash your way through its water slides and wave pools.

Clark’s Trading Post is a Lincoln institution. This family-owned centre is known for its White Mountain Central Railroad, a scenic 25-minute ride in an old-fashioned steam-powered train. Watch a group of trained bears that perform tricks and visit several mini museums devoted to Americana.

Lincoln lies along the scenic Kancamagus Highway, which bisects the White Mountain National Forest to connect Bath in the west to Conway in the east. Stop and enjoy the views from the many scenic lookouts along the road.
