Trail Use during Winter Season
Please note that while the trails are open year round, they are not maintained. The following City-owned** trail head parking lots are plowed:
- Oak Hill (Map 12, Shaker Rd lot)
- Batchelder Mill Road (Map 15)
- Winant Park (Map 21, Fisk Road lot)
- Swope Park (Map 25)
- Broken Ground (Map 30)
**Please note, not all of the trails in the trail guide are owned and maintained by the City. Several trails are owned and maintained by the State or other private entities. For example, the State maintains the lot access to White Farm cross-country ski trails, but does not maintain the Sewalls Falls Recreation Area lot. The NH Audubon Society and SPNHF lots are maintained.
For cross-country skiing, groomed trails can be found at White Farm (Map 17) and Beaver Meadow Golf Course. For more information and recommendations for other cross-country skiing locations in Concord, click here.
On fresh snow, please use snowshoes. Bare-booting can cause "post-holing" which is a potential hazard for trail users. On heavily used trails, the snow gets packs down and the trails can get icy. In those conditions, we recommend using microspikes or cleats, and walking poles.
Broken Ground: Eversource line replacement project: this work is ongoing in the vicinity of the Marsh Loop Trail at Broken Ground. The trail remain open and work should not impede trail use.
