An Easy But Gorgeous Hike, The Ellis River Ski Trail Leads To A Little-Known River In New Hampshire

Got a pair of snowshoes and a hankering for some exhilarating activity? Head to the Ellis River Ski Trail! Mainly used by cross-country skiers in New Hampshire’s snow-covered months, it’s about a four-mile loop considered easy to moderate. The views of the Ellis River and surrounding forest are superb, especially with snow-dusted pines and tall branches. The river is relatively small, at about sixteen miles long, but is big on gushing waters and scenic curves.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
