If you are heading to the Lincoln, NH area this summer and you’re looking for a fun adventure for the day, check out the Loon Mountain Adventure Center. Whether you want to traverse the Aerial Forest Adventure Park, zipline over the Pemigewasset River, or ride the scenic gondola sky-ride to the summit, there is something for everyone to love at Loon.

Loon offers different packages to fit your needs, so you can do everything or cherry pick the activities that are right for your family.  We had a super adventure pass, which included everything, but my sister in law & her family joined us while we were there and they chose to only get gondola ride tickets that day (because her littles needed to get home for naps). Here are some of the fun activities they have at the Loon Mountain Adventure Center.

The Aerial Forest Adventure Park

The Aerial Forest Adventure Park is a ropes course about half way up the mountain. The Aerial Forest Adventure Park consists of five courses of varying difficulty levels suspended above the forest floor. As you work your way you will encounter bridges, rope ladders and ziplines. I have to be honest, as much as we wanted to do this, we ran out of time and never made it to the ropes course the day we were there. Next time….

Gondola Summit & Skyride

While you are at Loon, enjoy a scenic 10-minute ride to the summit of the mountain in their four-person Gondola Skyride. At the end of the 1.3-mile ascent, you will be able to enjoy all of the cool things at the top.

Hiking
Grab your hiking shoes and explore their scenic trail network. You can hike up to the summit of North Peak or enjoy a leisurely walk back down to the bottom.

Loon Peak Disc Golf
Play 18 holes on New Hampshire’s highest disc golf course. Tee off from the first hole near the summit and enjoy breathtaking views of New Hampshire’s highest peaks as you play to the mountain’s base.

Mountaintop Yoga
If you have some time to spare, join one of the hour-long yoga sessions at the summit of Loon Peak.

Summit Cafe
If you are hangry after the caves, stop into the Summit Café for lunch while you are up there. There are restrooms and this is a great spot for snacks, drinks or just to sit at one of the picnic tables and take in the view.

Biking

With our super adventure pass, we got half day bike rentals (but you can rent them for a full day as well). If you are adventurous, you can ride along the cross-country trails nearby, or even ride over to downtown Lincoln.

Loon also rents e-bikes. Their fleet of e-bike is equipped with Hybrid Cycling Technology, so they give you a boost that blends seamlessly with your own pedaling. My hubby and Jared each took an e-bike for a spin and they said they never want to go back to “regular” bikes!

There is also a bouncy house at the Adventure Center, so the little ones definitely love that.

Pro tip: Wear closed toe shoes because you won’t be able do most of the activities without them.

We loved spending the day at Loon Mountain Adventure Center!  It was a great way to break up our week and have some fun that we wouldn’t have been able to have anywhere else near the area.

  1. This would be the perfect day trip for my family. I have to look into planning a trip.

  3. I’m hoping to be able to take my boys to the mountains one of these days. I went as a child and it was always something that I looked forward to every year. My boys would love to be able to go hiking, fishing, and ride a gondola. Time for mama to start a vacation fund. 🙂
