Campton, NH July 23, 2020 – The parking lot that accesses the Welch – Dickey hiking trail will be closed Monday through Friday beginning on July 27th and ending Wednesday August 5th to accommodate the construction of a new concrete toilet building and demolition of the existing building. The new building will be purchased and constructed using Recreation Fee dollars and will replace the existing toilet building that has deteriorated after years of heavy use and exposure to the elements.
The parking area will open on weekends but remain closed Monday through Friday until installation of a new toilet building and associated groundwork is complete. The expected completion date is August 5th. Parking will be permitted along the West side of Orris Rd. Hikers will be detoured around the construction zone to access the trails. Hiking will be permitted on the Welch Dickey Trail throughout this project. Please follow the signs on where to park.
