Took a full day kayak trip with wife and daughter. We were only people in the group and it was great. Dave our guide was awesome, felt like we were kayaking with a friend. Great weather, sites and overall great day. Definitely recommend full day trip versus half day and its only 15 bucks more.

Glen Trails is located across the majestic Mount Washington. This attraction offers rentals for biking, kayaking, canoeing and hiking. The museum will entertain you on the history of the area. A place to visit!

“Nice trails!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014

My husband & I were here before the official start of summer so the Outdoor Center was not open yet. There is a fee for biking but walkers are free! (We walked). We enjoyed having the trails to ourselves! The trails are wide & clearly marked and the views are beautiful! Great for family biking! Will definitely be back!!!

“Great for First Timers & Advanced”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2014

Our first time we ever tried a groomed track we came here. I'll also mention that it was our 4th time xc skiing overall. We had a BLAST!

Our first time we went, the staff behind the ticket counter kind of assumed we had been there before. Not only had we not, this was also our first time skiing on a groomed tracked. That staff member wasn't super helpful but everyone else was extremely nice.

We made our way up Libby Trace to the Great Angel Station where we stopped to warm up then came all the way back down. I would greatly suggest taking a lesson if it is your first time. Coming back down the hills was fun but there are a few part when the tracks end and if you don't know how to stop, or the concept of it at least, it could lead to some issues! We very quickly learned the importance of this.

If you are an advanced skier, there are some great trails. This last weekend we went up and attempted the Blue trails (more difficult). It was a 50 degree weekend which made everything slower but the hills and turns were a ton of fun.

The lodge is one of the best we've been to. It's very large with a great lunch/snack area, big rental shop and good bathroom/changing rooms.

We will definitely come back here every time we head north!

**We got free days tickets from staying at The Jackson Lodge and Whitney's Inn
