Perhaps The State’s Best Hidden Treasure, Hardly Anyone Knows This Tiny Lake Exists In New Hampshire
Where can you go in New Hampshire that feels like being in Canada but isn’t? The state’s northernmost town of Pittsburg is that place and it’s a spectacular, wild region that is mostly undeveloped. Just a very short distance from the town’s border with Chartierville, Québec lies the tiny source of what is one of the most significant waterways in the northeastern United States and it’s a hidden natural wonder in NH like no other.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
If visiting the Pittsburg area, this is as close as you’re going to get to Canada without needing a passport (although it wouldn’t hurt to have one on you). For more information on this hidden natural wonder in NH, visit The Nature Conservancy.
