Forest Journal -- Dewey Woods: for a more glorious Sunapee
Herbert Welsh, ardent conservationist and Sunapee summer resident in the early decades of the 1900s, was known for walking to his New Hampshire summer house from his home in Pennsylvania. (COURTESY)
Welsh (1851-1941) was a summer resident of Sunapee during the early decades of the 20th century who was known for his annual walking sojourns from his home in Germantown, Pa., to his summer place in New Hampshire. He completed his last such trek in 1928 at age 77.
"The Welsh Trail takes you into a new patch of woods that used to have an open view of the lake," Eliassen said. "Part of the trail also allows easy access to a set of trails that interpret forest management that were established by Sawyer Webb a few years ago."Every town has a special place like Sunapee's Dewey Woods and Garnet Hill. And every town has someone like Herbert Welsh or Barbara Chalmers. We are all better off as a result.
