Park on Old West Side Road just outside of the Echo Lake State Park entrance.

Ride down the hill past Frechette Oil Company on your left and turn right onto West Side Road.
Follow scenic the easy rolling hills of West Side Road past houses and farms. Continue to the intersection of Passaconaway Road (a.k.a. Dugway Road) on your right.
Turn right on the narrow shaded road. After a few miles you will see the Red Eagle Pond on your right and eventually the Swift RIver on your left.
Ride through the Albany Covered Bridge, being careful to steer around the open floorboards!
At the intersection of Passaconaway Road and the Kancamagus Highway turn left. Follow the Kanc gently downhill to the intersection with Rt 16.
Turn Left on 16 and continue on the busy road through Conway Village to the first traffic light, West Side Road.
Turn left at the light and back onto West Side Road, bearing left at the Y and over a small bridge over the Swift River. Go past fields, up a small hill and around a curve to the right. Passaconaway Road will be on your left.
Continue straight, following your previous route back along the gently rolling hills to the Echo Lake State Park and Frechette Oil signs.
Turn left (be careful due to the hill and curve behind you) and pull the final short hill to your car.
