The Purity Spring XC & Snowshoe Reserve features 20km of scenic trails that wind through the forests around Purity Lake, traverse through the grounds of Purity Spring Resort and twist through tall pines in the adjacent NH Hoyt Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary. Generally, 12+km are tracked and skate-groomed twice weekly and daily on weekends or when usage is high. Trail levels range from beginner to advanced and are open from sunrise to sunset. Dogs are not allowed on weekends or during holiday periods. Well-behaved dogs can join their owners for adventures midweek during non-holiday periods and we just ask that owners have a leash ready when passing others on trails and usual consideration with dogs.
Trail passes are complimentary with your Purity Spring Resort midweek lodging stay. Please note that all regular King Pine alpine lift tickets include XC skiing, snowshoeing and ice skating while valid.
