Lyme Pinnacle Loop - Upper Valley Land Trust maintains a trail that goes to the top of The Pinnacle (actually named “Acorn Hill”) with broad views looking north to Smarts Mountain and even the White Mountains, and down over Post Pond.

Lyme Hill - A short, moderate trail with great views also in Lyme. 1.7 miles out and back, 1 hour.

Holt's Ledge - Just a few miles away, this is part of the Appalachian Trail, which stretches from Georgia to Maine. A moderate hike up to the top of the local ski area finishing at a large granite cliff. 3.4 mile out-and-back. 2-3 hours.  

Houghton Hill (Mimi's Trail) - Just a few miles further away on Thetford Hill, the area has been carefully developed to include a vast network of trails, reaching all the way to the top of the state forest nearby.
