I spent many summer days climbing Mount Sunapee as a child. The park is even better than before with the addition of an aerial challenge course and zip lines, but the beauty still tops any of the man-made additions. One of the highlights of the mountain is the chair lift to the top. While I usually go for the 2 mile hike, a morning spent 50 feet above the trees on a super-sized jungle gym was enough to tame my sense of adventure and make the chair lift a welcomed site. From the summit, a short 1.1 mile hike takes you to Lake Solitude, an ideal spot for a picnic and pictures.
