 Trail Description

The lookout provides a spectacular view of Lake Sunapee and Mount Sunapee as shown in photos to right. The Clark Lookout property is available through the generosity of Sydney L. Crook and Mary D. Haddad, who donated land and funding to the town of New London for conservation and recreation use.  The Clark Lookout Trail (in purple on the map) starts on Rt 103-A, across from the Park and Ride lot near Exit 12 on Rte. 89. The trail profile is shown below. The trail is less than 0.4 miles (one way) and climbs 100 feet. Heading up the trail, the first point of interest is the trail kiosk, which has information about the history of the trail and includes a bulletin board where notices and information are posted. Near it is the libary box, where hikkers can borrow or lend books when they visit. Turn left at the kiosk to continue up the trail. Further on is the four corner road intersection (turn right) which is the last turn before proceeding to the lookout summit.

NOTICE: No fires are allowed at any time. The removal or tampering with the rock walls, vegetation, or other items found at the Lookout is strictly prohibited.
