      Group of three trails in Marjorie Swope Park. Can be easily connected to a longer ride in the Hospital / Winant trails area by a short ride on Little Pond Road. Access from the trail head on Long Pond Road. Blue trail clockwise provides a good uphill climb on the south side with a nice downhill on the north side. Great views all around. Many families with young children hiking on the trails so use caution on the downhill sections.

      The City of Concord worked with the Swope family, Five Rivers, and St. Paul’s School to create the park that can be visited today. There are three connecting trails that are open for non-motorized recreation such as walking and biking. There is a loop trail (1.45mi) up Jerry Hill, marked in blue, leading to one of the best views of Penacook Lake. The yellow trail (0.56mi) cuts through the park from north to south and goes past the foundation of an old observation tower. From the center of the yellow trail cutting west to the blue trail is the orange trail (0.18mi) that will take you past a large granite outcrop called Gilfillan Rock.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
