Grafton Lakes State Park

Grafton Lakes State Park - Second Pond
Grafton Lakes State Park is not just for the summer. There are 2,500 acres, 4 ponds and 25 miles of hiking trails.  Cross-country skiing and snow-shoeing in the winter is very popular. Snow shoes can be rented  and a section of Long Pond is plowed for ice skating.  The park staff maintains a nice Facebook Page that allows you to stay informed on what's happening.

The Friends of Grafton Lakes State Park do a lot to complement the work done by the top-notch full-time park staff.  Take a look at the work they've been doing restoring Dickinson Hill Fire Tower.
