Start the new year off right with an outdoor excursion! Join NH State Park and Forest Society staff and land stewards for a 3-mile self-guided hike along the Parker Trail to the Little Mountain Viewpoint. This hike will take approximately 3 hours to complete. For those looking for a more leisurely hike of 2 miles, enjoy a hike along the Parker Trail to the Cliff Walk junction and back. This leisurely hike will take approximately 2 hours on relatively flat terrain. Snowshoes or traction may be helpful depending on conditions.
The fall hiking season is here at last– crisp air, colorful leaves and, best of all – no bugs! It's a great time to hike, but sometimes we don’t have the luxury of spending an entire Saturday on the trail.
With warmer weather upon us, many more of us like to head for a restorative walk in the woods. The Forest Society owns and manages more than 175 Forest Reservations throughout the state, all open to the public.
