Along the shore of Lake Wentworth at Wolfeboro, you'll find the sprawling Wentworth State Park, a popular swimming, picnicking, boating and fishing spot. Wolfeboro is also home to a couple of small but interesting local museums, including the New England Boat Museum. Around 30 minutes to the north, Pine River State Forest has miles of beautiful trails through oak and pine woodland interspersed with wetland habitats. In summer, this is great birding and hiking territory. Come winter, the trails are open for snow-shoeing and cross-country skiing.

    Year-round reasons to come

    Wakefield enjoys a typical New England climate, with very distinct seasons. Winter is cold and snowy. This is the time to enjoy cross-country skiing, shoe-shoeing and snowmobiling on snow-covered forest trails. When the snows melt in spring, walking the forest trails to the sound of rushing meltwater and migratory birdsong is the perfect way to greet the sunshine. Summer temperatures don't get much above the low 80s, still comfortable for hiking, biking and enjoying the local lakes. Fall is perhaps the most spectacular season, with nature in her finery of pinks and golds, the trails a riot of autumnal color and the air thick with birdsong once again.
