About this Location

Peg King Park is known around town as a “hidden gem”. On a hot summer day, this is the place you will find reprieve; in the winter, the best snowshoeing jaunt around!

The trail is located about 250 feet up Ridge Road from the intersection with Candia Road on the right. There is ample room to park and turn about. After entering the park, there is a short descent to the brookside picnic tables. The trails begin across the bridge. Standing on the bridge over Nichols brook and looking downstream, you will see the remains of adam that was once part of a productive sawmill. The white markers create a loop through pine, hemlock, and birch forest. The blue markers off to the right denote a short trail alongside a glacial erratic adorned by snow, or moss and fern, depending on the season. Meandering along the main trail, you will pass along stonewalls borderingCandia Road properties. A vernal pond resounds with awakening life in the early spring. Relax, breathe, and take in the natural beauty around you. Before you leave, enjoy a quiet moment next to Nichols Brook under the hemlocks, and toss a thought of thanks to Roger and Peg King.
