An awesome little park right across from downtown Newmarket. The woods contain 2 large glacial erratics, and many smaller boulders. The park is cleared out from heavy traffic, but some big pine trees keep it nice and shady. Make sure you pick your way down to the river to check out the big boulder.

Getting There 

To get there drive in from 108, through a trailer park, then down a little trail to a parking lot. The park is closed from dusk till dawn. The big boulders are on the trail leading left from the parking lot, as you face the river.

More fun than you would think here. If you live in town you can totally string together a decent little workout.
