Carol and I enjoyed a quiet 3 1/2 mile Thanksgiving walk at this beautiful location on Squam Lake.

There is a new start for the trails leaving Pinehurst Road at the base of West Rattlesnake. There is now a short trail segment rather than a road walk.

A very cool geocache location at the junction of the Col Trail and Pasture Trail.


Mellow walking on the Five Finger Point Trail, maintained by the Squam Lakes Association.

Some recent sidecut work by SLA where the trail descends a sidehill towards the peninsula.

The trail meanders for 1.3 miles around the multi-point peninsula.

A waterside ledge.

West and East Rattlesnake.

Welcome sign at on of the points.

Great ledges out here.

Nice spot to linger.

A small beach at the head of a cove.

A peaceful spot, warm in the sun, out of the wind.

More ledges, with Mt. Webster in the Squam Range seen in the distance.

We sawed up one blowdown and tossed a number of limbs off the trail.

A view along the north side of the peninsula.

Mt. Israel (R) and Dinsmore Mountain (L).

Many large white pines in this area.

The woods on the mainland are laced with stone walls -- pure New England.
