WOW Trail

The WOW Trail is a planned 12-mile multi-use recreational trail that will connect the towns of Belmont, Laconia, and Meredith and provide a beautiful space for the public to enjoy walking and bicycling along the waterfront of Lakes Winnisquam, Opechee, and Winnipesaukee. The existing section of trail runs from downtown Laconia to Lakeport and is 1.3 miles long. Phase II planning and fundraising are underway and will connect downtown Laconia to the Belmont town line.
