Welcome to the WOW Trail

The WOW Trail is a paved, 10 feet wide, rail-with-trail in the City of Laconia.  Currently 1.3 miles long, the trail spans from Elm Street in Lakeport to North Main Street near downtown Laconia. A portion of the trail, located between Bisson Avenue and Lyford Street, is adjacent to Messer Street on a widened sidewalk.

Well loved and well-used by walkers, runners and bikers, Phase 1 of the WOW Trail has fast become a unifying landmark and point of pride for the CIty of Laconia.

Final design and fundraising is currently underway for Phase 2 – which will extend the Trail another 1.1 miles from North Main Street to the Belmont town line.

Please make a donation to the WOW Trail today and help build Phase 2 in 2015!

For more information about our fundraising efforts, please contact us at info@wowtrail.org or (603) 520-8952.  

WOW Trail’s mission is to promote, design, build and maintain a nine mile recreation path through the CIty of Laconia as a part of the regional rail trail network that will one day connect Meredith to Franklin.
