This is great spot given the easy access. Most of the trails are flat and scenic and right in the middle of the city. There were handy bridges, an interesting dam. Some of the trails did have some grades and tight spots, but overall they...More

Very nice Park. Scenery is just great. You can easily walk for hours without passing twice at the same place. But unfortunately some people walking with their dogs seem to consider the place like their own et they don't always pick up their dog poo....More

We took a walk along the beautifully groomed trails along the water, and we loved these twisting paths that followed the canals on both sides, and allow for crossing over. Paved and non-paved (but groomed) trails were very easy to walk and enjoy a long...More

Mines Falls Park offers many trails ranging from paved (easy) to hard-packed sand (off-trail, a little more difficult). The trail winds along the canal and basically connects Coliseum Avenue (by the Nashua Mall) to downtown Nashua (by the old mill yard). The trails also branch...More

I walk in Mine Falls multiple times each week. There are several easy trails, most are wide and paved and accommodate both wheelchairs and strollers. It's a great place to walk, bike or teach your kids to fish. Good for ages from newborn to seniors...More

Mine Falls never fails to be a great place to walk. Even when it is summer hot and humid, it is pleasant. The tree lined trails provide shelter from the blazing sun and possible shower. The trails are mostly flat but you can find slightly...More

I embarrassed to say that I lived in the Nashua Area for many years before discovering the wonders of Mine Falls Park. If you love the outdoors MFP is a must.
