Default Walking path through Profile Lake?

There was a letter to the editor in today's paper about the New Hampshire Division of Parks and Recreation in cooperation with the Old man of the Mountain Legacy Fund putting a walking path through the lake.

They plan to do this by placing large granite blocks in the water. They didn't explain how it was to be done and I couldn't find anything about it online so far.

This was the first I heard about it. Has anybody else heard of it? Has TU opposed this at all?

Default What?

That pond is 15' deep and averages 6'. That's going to be some big rocks!
I would like to see that DES dredge and fill permit. They just don't hand those things out for state park waters.
They just don't hand them out at all unless your Mitt Romney, buts that's another story.

Maybe the path is to go 'around' the pond?

I'm thinking if they did this it would be across the shallow far north end of the pond, maybe from the Old Man viewing site across to the path along the west side. This would not really be disruptive to wading or floating (as long as the brookies could get to the brook on the north end for spawning).

Default There will be NO path through the pond.

The Department of Eviromental Services will NOT issue a permit for a path trough a pond in a state park. I fix Bridges for the state and we have trouble getting permits to repair bridges over waterways for state highways. They could possibly place a footpath bridge over the inlet or outlet stream but even that would require a dredge and fill permit and a substantial mitigation fee (bribe). I just don't see it happening.
You could never build the path that currently goes to the viewing area today. They just don't allow that sort of thing anymore. That that path is filled wetlands from the base of the hill to the pond. They would build a raised wood walkway on post that has minimal impact.
