Recreation

The Forest Society's mission includes conserving lands that provide recreational opportunities--and economic benefits through tourism--for New Hampshire residents and visitors. Visit this page to explore stories related to recreation on conserved lands.

Our reservations are open to the public for many kinds of pedestrian recreation.

The Dilly Cliffs Trail out of Lost River Gorge in Woodstock, N.H., will be closed indefinitely due to the recent forest fire.  Portions of the Kinsman Ridge Trail (AT) remain closed temporarily as well. 

Hikers arriving at immensely popular Mount Major in Alton this summer will find a few changes, as the Forest Society is working with our partners to improve the experience little by little.

Help Us Connect People to Nature!

October is a Goldilocks month. It's neither too hot, nor too cold; no hazy humidity, no bugs, no snow… or at least no appreciable accumulation is likely. Warm cobalt-blue sky afternoons and cool wood smoke evenings are perfect for ascending New Hampshire’s famed summits to admire the foliage.
