Odione State Park (Portsmouth NH)

Odiorne offers one of the most beautiful natural settings along New Hampshire's coastline. Within the 135-acre seaside park with several walking trails.

The Walk:

Odiorne Point is the largest undeveloped stretch of shore on New Hampshire's eighteen mile coast. Located three miles south of Portsmouth on Route 1A in Rye.

While the park is an ideal location for seaside outdoor recreation, the property is also renowned for its diverse natural history. Seven distinct natural habitats can be visited in a leisurely walk. Although the spectacular rocky shore is the most popular, the woodlands, uplands, salt marsh, freshwater and salt ponds, and sandy beach combine to create one of the region's most diverse nature walks.

We will walk around the area for a two hours. This is a short walk bring a snack and we will socialize on the jetty at the midpoint of the walk. Dinner and Drinks:

We will then head into nearby downtown Portsmouth and go to the Gas Light Grille for food and drinks.

2:00 pm: Official Start time of hike. Please check the comment section for updates on where to find us (especially if you are a little late)

    Can be confusing if not familiar with our roads. Road name changes multiple times. It can be, and always will be 1A. Also Pioneer from the mini traffic circle (Elwyn/Pioneer-1A), then turns into Ocean Blvd over a small bridge. Continue past bridge a short way and on left is main gate. If coming from South along the ocean (Ocean Blvd), on right. road frontage of park is wooded. Hope this helps and have not confused folks more :-)
