Riverfront Park Lincoln NH.
A tentative master plan was in the works during the real estate development boom of the mid 1980's. Folks that were profiting from resort properties were encouraged (required) to set aside a right of way along the Pemi River.
The Two Town master plan...Woodstock to the Franconia Notch State park, and From the White Mountain Attractions to Lincoln-woods National Forest ranger station (on the Kancamagus scenic highway). Below: the center of Lincoln NH red-line indicates the White Mountain Visitor center - to the South Mountain Bridge to Loon's Ski Resort.
A network of trails will be developed throughout the towns of Lincoln and Woodstock, New Hampshire and will be incorporated with a new Riverfront Park in the town of Lincoln. The system of trails will include 1. Trails for pedestrians to walk, snow shoe, cross country ski, fishing or bicycle on, 2. Trails for snow mobiles and 3. Trails for equestrian usage. Many of these trails, or sections thereof, already exist (due to the planning board requirements in the master plan development). However several of the proposed trails or sections are new and must be constructed. It is intended that the new trails, along with the existing trails, will be extensive enough between the towns of Lincoln and Woodstock so as to provide a trail system “hub” for local residents, visitors and tourists in northern New Hampshire by which to enjoy the area during all four seasons. Kayak put-in areas are still in the works, to allow visitors to enjoy the Pemigewasset River from the actual water.
The development of the trail system will intentionally maintain separation of non-motorized from motorized vehicular traffic. However, access to the Riverfront Park will be made available to both modes of traffic. The trail system and Riverfront Park will integrate focus on the historical heritage of the Lincoln-Woodstock area as well as present an environmental perspective of the region by the use of posters, kiosks, and signs. Trails will be maintained, pet friendly and have furniture such as benches, lights, and will be positioned appropriately.
Tubing , cross country skiing, dog sledding, hikes and mountain biking are all modes of transportation envisioned along the River Front Park.
Some of the Current and future features you gain access to, from this proposed trail system are: NCAA (north country center for the Arts) , White Mountain visitors center, the village shops, several restaurants, the Kancamagus scenic highway – and state bike path, several unique swimming areas, and of course the Loon Mountain ski & recreational resort.
