The Best Walks at Dartmouth
Walks are an awesome way to relax. Personally, I like to take walks during study breaks, between classes, and whenever I have free time with friends. So, as you might guess, I have explored enough to know the best trails around campus. Here are some of my favorites:
- No. 1
Located on the outskirts of the Dartmouth Golf Course, Pine Park is a set of beautiful trails lined with tall pines (as the name suggests) and bordering the Connecticut River. The path can get icy during winter, so make sure to wear boots if it's cold outside!
- No. 2
The Golf Course
The Dartmouth Golf Course has some awesome sights. In warm months, the grass is green and soft, and you can get a clear view of the mountains surrounding Hanover. In winter, snow covers the fields–just enough for sledding!
- No. 3
Occom Pond is a classic. It is surrounded by a hilly road and trees just sparce enough to give you a clear view of the water. In winter, the pond freezes and you can often find locals, and Dartmouth students, playing hockey and ice skating. This is a short, beautiful walk–perfect for when you're short on time!
