Lopstick and the Great North Woods of New Hampshire are a true sportsman’s paradise, with the hunting, fishing, ATV and snowmobile trail networks, boating and canoeing.
But there is plenty to do for those looking for less strenuous activities as well. Our neighborhood is full of excellent places for hiking, hill climbing, sightseeing, shopping and much more
Hiking and Climbing Experiences
Pittsburg and environs may not have the dramatic mountain landscapes found elsewhere in New Hampshire (see the Presidential range, for instance), but our collection of rolling hills and gentle mountains are easy to hike and offer some truly stunning views of our forest and lake terrain.
With a good pair of sturdy walking shoes and a good stick, you can explore some of these great hiking spots.
The border between the US and Canada is just 13 miles north of Lopstick. There is majestic scenery on the northern side of the border, as well as a handful of small Quebec towns to visit that make for an enjoyable day trip.
There are three covered bridges in the Pittsburg area, always a favorite of tourists.
- The Bacon Road Covered Bridge spans the Connecticut River just south of Pittsburg Village. It’s just over 88 feet long and was built around 1876.
- The River Road Covered Bridge is found on Lake Francis Road, seven miles north of the village and just over a mile east off US 3. Built in 1858, its 50-foot length spans Perry Stream.
Garfield Falls: What a beautiful place to see! Take Magalloway Road 12.2 miles, then stay straight another 1 mile to a small turnout on either side of the road. The trail is to the left 1/4 a mile to the 38-foot falls. Bring your swimsuit as Garfield Falls is a great place for swimming ! You’ll need good footwear for fishing and hiking the rocks at the Falls site.
