Several swimming holes in the West Branch Brook accessed by a trail in the White Mountain. N. F.. LAT, LON lat=43.86794,lon=-71.692(source: DeLorme) (accuracy: general area). To get here: Near Campton, where I-93 intersects RT 3 (exit 29) take RT 3 south a very short distance, under the I-93 overpass, and take the first right at the top of the hill, which is Adams Farm Rd. Then take the first road on the left, Forest Road 378 (gravel), park and walk along this road perhaps 0.75 mile past the gate to a junction where a snowmobile trail goes left. As of August 2014, there is a larger snowmobile club sign at the left corner of this intersection. Turn left here and walk about another 3/4 mile until you reach the brook. There's a small part of this section that may get soggy during wet times. Once you reach the brook, the trail coincides with the brook, curving around to the left. There are some small pools along here but keep going. In approx 0.5 miles, there is a broken-down shed on the right. At the brook there are some delightful ledges and a nice pool for swimming. The snowmobile trail continues, so there may be more pools after this. Not verified. Updated 11/25/02.
