About the Property
The 126-acre Andrew Brook Forest was protected in 2010 and 2016, partially to safeguard access to the eastern side of Mount Sunapee for hikers, hunters and fishermen. Portions of the Andrew Brook Forest are rich in sugar maple (Acer saccharum) and you may see tubing from active sugaring operations as you hike. Andrew Brook and its tributaries meander throughout this acreage, creating beautiful mossy pools and cascades and providing habitat for numerous wildlife species.
The Andrew Brook Trail climbs steeply from the trailhead on Mountain Road in Newbury 1.9 miles to Lake Solitude on the eastern slopes of Mount Sunapee. The trail crosses Andrew Brook multiple times on the way up (be aware in high water it may be difficult to cross without getting wet feet). Lake Solitude can be enjoyed from its shoreline, or from White ’s Ledges above (a short but steep additional 0.3 miles).
