Leave the Ski Boots Behind on Your Next Trip to Waterville Valley
Although Waterville Valley may best be known for the exhilarating alpine and cross-country skiing opportunities of the Waterville Valley Resort, this charming town is also home to a wide range of warm weather pursuits that can satisfy any outdoor adventurer.
With a convenient location near the White Mountain National Forest, Waterville Valley is home to more than 100 miles of trails that can accommodate hikers of every ability. Whether an easy jaunt along Boulder Path suits your needs or a challenging excursion to the summit of Mount Osceola or Mount Tecumseh is more to your liking, these paths can open your eyes to some of the very best scenery in the Valley.
While hiking may be expected in this region of New Hampshire, the waterfront excitement of Corcoran’s Pond is waiting outside your Waterville Valley vacation rental to add a few surprises to your itinerary. Fed by the clear, mountain stream of Snow’s Brook, this 6.5 acre pond offers swimming, kayaking, canoeing and a soft sandy beach all in a picture perfect mountain setting.
However, if you cannot resist the invigorating thrill of the mountains, then a biking expedition may better match your vacation style. At Waterville Valley’s Mountain Bike Park, you can conquer 30 miles of well-maintained trails by taking the chairlift up Snow Mountain and then choosing the paths through the White Mountain National Forest that are best fit your skill level.
These are just a few of the offerings available through the Adventure Center, but there are also plenty of relaxing pursuits for you to enjoy during your Waterville Valley vacation. Consider golfing at the Waterville Valley Golf Club’s 9-hole course, working on your forehand at the Waterville Valley Tennis Center, or skating the day away at the indoor ice arena on your next trip to this spectacular area.
