The Newbury Trail start from the town of Newbury and is less traveled trail then Andrews Brook. It is also the most difficult of the three trails. The trail start as a steady climb and in about 300 yards it leads to pretty ledge overlook of Lake Sunapee. The trail then continues until it reachs the steep with another overlook about one mile from the trailhead. It then summits the South Peak of Mt. Sunapee where it levels out.
