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.

The Forest Society sponsored a free, guided hike at the new Moody Mountain Forest Reservation in Wolfeboro in June, 2016.
