I can now say with absolute sincerity that I have traveled the road to Success and reached my destination! Success, NH that is. Success is another beautiful unincorporated place in NH. It is probably most famous for being the site of the 1954 plane crash. I didn’t do any hiking while I was there (although there are plenty of trails!), but it is a wonderful ride to Success Pond. The road is an old logging road and although it isn’t well maintained, it IS worth the drive. You don’t need 4 wheel drive to get there but I probably wouldn’t try it in a corvette.
You have to drive through a small portion of Maine to reach Success Pond. The only other people I encountered while I was there were a few ATVers at the beginning of the trail (but I was there mid-week). As of the 2010 census, there were no full-time residents in Success. There are several seasonal homes around the pond, mostly on the west side of it.
It is definitely a ride worth taking. You can get to Success Pond Road off of Truck Rte. 16
