Newfound Lake Pathway

The Center for Active Living and Healthy Communities is collaborating with Plymouth State University’s Center for Rural Partnerships to help residents of the New Hampshire towns surrounding Newfound Lake plan and implement construction of a system of biking and walking pathways.
 
Newfound Lake is one of New Hampshire’s most treasured natural resources, but the surrounding towns of Alexandria, Bridgewater, Bristol and Hebron lack a system of routes for bikers and pedestrians. The Newfound Lake Pathway committee’s goal is to create a system of non-motorized transportation paths to encourage walking and cycling as a safe, healthy and environmentally sound means of recreation and travel.
 
In its early stages of involvement, the Center has created a digital photo map of Newfound Lake and is advising the committee on the project. In December 2009, the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation awarded the committee a $4,350 grant to fund a conceptual-engineering plan for the pathway’s first phase.
