The Point

This spot may go by a variety of names. It has become a favorite of students in the summertime, especially as a Connecticut River swimming hole. The western bank of the Point is steep, but the southern end is more broad, providing space to lay a blanket and stretch out under the pines.

How to get there: 
From the Hanover Inn, follow South Main Street south to the corner of Main and Maple Street (just before the gas station). Turn right onto Maple and follow it until it makes a sharp right bend to a dead end, just after reaching the top of a small hill. At the bend follow the path which begins next to the mailbox and winds down a steep bank to the river. At the river’s edge, the path bears left and ends at the southern edge of the point.
