Spending a day in Barnstead NH with my dog. What can we do for fun?

I'll me spending a day with just me and my Golden in Center Barnstead NH this week. I can't venture too far out of the area because I still need to be reasonably close to where my kids will be spending the day.
I'd love to take him for a nice hike or in one of the lakes. Anybody have any ideas for some good activities in the vicinity?

Wolfeboro isn't too far away and offers lots of touristy activities as well as a very nice trail that passes by several lakes as well as a town-owned beach.

Best answer: My mother runs a beautiful dog-friendly frisbee golf course right in Barnstead.

If you don't know disc golf, it's essentially golf but played with a thrown disc instead of a ball. She has discs you can use, and it's a great walk in the woods and fields of an old New England farm. Tell her her eldest son sent you.

Best answer: If you take 28-S you'll get to Bear Brook State Park. That's a great place for small day hikes, walks with dogs, and car camping with kids.

Response by poster: Thanks Nanuk. That's going on the list too. :) Jeez, and I thought this site was dying. Looks like it's still the best place for good, useful answers.

Yeah, I'll vouch for Bear Brook, too. Used to do a LOT of mountain biking in there as a kid.
