This 316-acre Preserve is accessible by a 2.6-mile dirt road off Route 145. The trail is a flat out-and-back trail winding through a cold seepage swamp filled with northern white cedar, tamarack, and several spruces. One can also see a variety of orchids. A boardwalk will take you through shallow peat bogs on the preserve-please do not step off the boardwalk! This Preserve is managed by The Nature Conservancy in New Hampshire, and is an excellent place for walking, hunting, cross-country skiing, and observing wildlife. Camping, fires, pets, or wheeled vehicles are not permitted on the preserve. For more information and a trail map, visit:
