NH Forest Explorer
NH Forest Explorer is a mobile-friendly website that allows hikers to use an interactive trail map for select Forest Society reservations. Users can choose from our unique trail experiences, all of which track your location as you hike and allow you to share your trip on social media.
Each featured property highlights a trail, its length, elevation gain, and difficulty. The interactive map features points along the trail that highlight specific information about the land, as well as trees and wildlife - and it can be accessed at your home computer or via smart phone on the trail.
