Pudding Pond

Distance: Variable Rock and Root Rating: 1 Hilliness: 1 Mud Rating: 1-2 (except in Spring where it’s a 4) Pudding Pond is a great place to run if you’re ever in North Conway and short on travel time. The main trail is only about 2 miles long, but can be added to the nearby power […]

South Moat


Mount Eisenhower

Distance: 9 Miles Rock and Root Rating: 5 Hilliness: 5 Mud Rating: 3 This is probably one of the harder runs I’ve done, but fun nonetheless. Taking the Edmunds Trail from Mt. Clinton Rd. makes for a steep, rocky ascent. Once you reach tree line it flattens out and the footing becomes better. On the […]
