CARDIGAN STATE PARK
LOCATION - The park is off U.S. 4 and New Hampshire 118, 4 miles east of Canaan.
ACTIVITIES - A mountain road leads to a picnic spot on Mount Cardigan's western slope. Hike to the 3,121-foot summit via Westwoods Trail. Many hikers use the AMC lodge east of the park as a starting point for their hikes. Visit the solar-powered fire tower, manned from April-November. Crosscountry skiers come here during the winter to practice their telemarking.
A nearby attraction is Sculptured Rocks Natural Area, 2 miles west of Groton between New Hampshire ЗА and 118. Here you'll see interesting potholes eroded into various shapes by water-borne stones and sediments dating back to the last Ice Age. Bring along a picnic.
