The trail begins on the south side of the bathhouse near the beach area. You'll immediately be greeted by unusually tall pitch pines. This lovely woodland area is full of songbirds, scampering squirrels and waterfowl resting on the clear waters. As you proceed you'll want to take a left at an intersection where the main trail continues around the lake and the side trail heads off into a lower forest of scrub oak, mixed pine and blueberry bushes. The side path takes you past a lovely small wetland full of wildlife. It is not uncommon at dawn or dusk to spot ducks enjoying the reed habitat while white-tailed deer sip from the water's edge. Continue on the path following the white blazes to intersect with the main trail around the lake. The sandy beach area offers summertime swimming, picnicking and grilling.
Directions: From Tamworth or West Ossipee, NH, White Lake State Park is located between the towns of Tamworth and West Ossipee off Sr. 16. Pass the contact station and park in the beach area. The trail begins on the south side of the bathhouse.
