Nanamocomuck Trail

1 mile out and back. Wide old road – 4-10 feet wide, some washout shallow gullies. Parking on either side of the Albany Covered Bridge. Trail begins on the Passaconaway Road along the beautiful Swift River. www.traillink.com, maps also at the Ranger Station. The first mile or so is on a Forest Service Road and is a great walk; beyond that point there are drainage issues, log bridges, and diversions into the woods. The trail continues 2.6 miles one-way to Rocky Gorge but that does not meet our Most Walkable criteria. US fee area.

Helpful Tips

  1. Plan and educate yourself about the difficulty ratings of walking paths – easy, moderate or difficult. Carry a guidebook with maps or take a photograph of kiosk trail head maps.
  2. Walk with a friend for safety and companionship. If hiking alone, be sure to tell a friend or a relative where you are hiking. Carry a smart phone, but also ensure there is coverage.
  3. Stay on designated paths, respect private and public land. Be considerate of animal wildlife habitat and wild plants – take pictures and leave nature undisturbed.
  4. Stay hydrated, carry water and snacks.
  5. Have appropriate hiking footwear with good traction.
  6. Wear appropriate clothing based on daily weather conditions and temperatures. Consider sunglasses, insect repellent (ticks), layers, trekking poles, and in the winter – micro spikes, YakTrax or snowshoes.
  7. Carry out trash and keep pets on leash unless otherwise posted and bring bags to dispose of pet wastes.
  8. Assess the parking situation at the trailhead, be sure to lock your vehicle and do not leave any valuables in the car.
  9. Take a few minutes to stretch and warm up before hiking.
  10. Stop regularly to ensure everyone is comfortable with the pace, the terrain, and their physical condition.
