The third branch of the White River runs along the town's eastern border. Nearby is the 18-hole Montague Golf Course and more than 240 miles of mapped trails for hiking, biking, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, and snowshoeing.

Skiing, hiking, country inns, picturesque rivers, and country roads are part of the fun of exploring the villages and country lanes of the greater Randolph area.
