 Trail Description

The lookout provides a spectacular view of Lake Sunapee and Mount Sunapee as shown in photos to right. The lookout is a gift from Sydney L. Crook to the town of New London for conservation and recreation use.  The road leading to the lookout is on private property with an easement only for access to the lookout. The road easement also provides access for people with disabilities (inquire at the town offices to borrow a key to the gate to drive to the lookout).  Walk on the roads indicated in red on the map. The Clark Lookout Trail (in red on map) climbs from the exit 12 Park and Ride parking on Rt 103-A to the lookout on Davis Hill. The trail profile is shown below. The trail is less than 0.4 miles (one way) and climbs 100 feet. The waypoints shown on the map are identified on the profile. The first, CL01, is at the intersection of Davis Hill Rd. and Rt 103-A, the second at the wooden gate (first gate on left while walking up Davis Hill Rd. shown in photo to right) which is the entrance to the road leading to the lookout, the third is at the four corner road intersection (turn right) and the last is at the lookout.
