The Rocks

No matter the season, there is plenty to explore — from the history of the place to its natural beauty — along the trails at The Rocks. Our extensive trails system is open daily, year-round, from dawn to dusk. Maps are available at our information kiosk, located adjacent to the parking lot. Dogs are welcome to accompany their humans on the trails, although we ask that you keep them leashed until you're on the trail.

The heritage of The Rocks reaches from the pastoral beauty of the 1800s through the property's modern day role as a conservation and education center for the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests.

*NEW FOR 2020* Due to COVID-19, guests must register in advance to visit the Christmas tree farm for harvest-your-own trees, fresh-cut trees & wreaths. Open daily from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. through Sunday, December 20. Learn more here or click Christmas Tree Reservations.
