Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for the Nature-Fitness Trail

On Saturday, June 27th at 9:00 am a well attended ribbon-cutting ceremony took place to celebrate the completion of the New Hampton Nature Fitness Trail which runs behind the Public Safety Building on town property.  The entrance to the trail is at the southeast corner of the Public Safety Building parking lot on Intervale Drive, just off of Route 104 near the Pemigewasset River bridge. 

The trail incudes 20 fitness stations and several benches, and leads to the Pemigewasset River and an overlook, before looping around to return to the trail’s entrance.  New signage is being installed which will include a map of the trail, some history of the area and the river, photos of plants and animals native to the region, and a list of the many generous contributors and volunteers who have helped make this dream of a beautiful trail into reality. 

Donations are still needed for continued maintenance.

Alert From New Hampton Police Department


One resident received a call from someone claiming to be their grandchild in Ecuador crying, saying she had been arrested for drunk driving and needed money. The resident asked why she didn’t sound like her granddaughter and the caller said because she had been involved in an accident and had stitches near her mouth, maybe a broken nose as well. Then a man came on the phone saying he was law enforcement and she needed to wire the money right away.  These callers are tricky and can be very convincing.  Thankfully the resident did not fall for it.

A second resident called the police stating that a male left three messages on her answering machine saying he was “Officer Eric Foster” and if they don’t call him back he “issues them Good Luck”. A Google search shows this to be an old scam that is still being used. A third popular scam especially right now is someone claiming to be from the IRS. The recipient of that call hadn’t even filed his taxes yet so he knew something wasn’t right and hung up the phone.

Although law enforcement is unable to track these numbers we want to keep residents aware of these scams and the many other that are going around. If you receive any calls do not give out ANY information or money until the recipient can be verified either by contacting the person direct or preferably through law enforcement. There will NEVER be a situation that is so dire it cannot wait until it’s verified. If any resident needs assistance with verification please call the police department. We would also ask that anyone receiving this notice to reach out to people that do not receive this newsletter and to older residents or relatives whether they live in New Hampton or even New Hampshire. This is a nationwide problem and everyone needs to be careful.


Many People are Now Using the Nature-Fitness Trail


Bob Barry organized the installation of the 20 fitness stations along the trail with the help of many different volunteers. Preparation and installation of ledge pack along the trail to the Pemigewasset River overlook will take place soon and additional improvements will be made.

We are so thankful for the many donations from individuals and businesses that have made this project successful. Donations are still needed for continued improvements and maintenance.
