Fall in love with New Hampshire hiking on the sunny ledges of low-lying West Rattlesnake Mountain, which overlooks Squam Lake's
tranquil islands and coves. The lake, made famous in the 1981 classic On Golden Pond, is a gorgeous prize and a lunch spot during an easy 2-mile round-trip Lakes Region trek along the benign Old Bridle Path in Holderness. From the junction of routes 113 and 3 in Holderness, travel about 6 miles on Route 113 to trailhead parking. For more information, contact the Squam Lakes Association, 534 US Route 3, Holderness, 603-968-7336, squamlakes.org.
