Fun trip up the mountain, but was very confusing getting back to the car. Need to increase the amount of signs to make it easier to find the way back down

The Boulder field is pretty cool, lots to see. On the top of the north peak there is a large green metal marker used by WWII bomber pilots returning from Europe for navigation.

LOVED this hike/nature walk!! So many trails to make it as short or as long as you want. We did ten miles that were quite easy. Just beautiful forests, picturesque ponds, and amazing boulders! Such a great day!! Definitely will do it again!!!

Boulder trail is great for kids. Nice easy walk and great views. Little ones didn't have the energy to make it to the tower. Will try again at a later date. Bring deep woods bug spray!!! We were good with that, others without we're not so happy

Pawtuckaway State Park is one of four entrances to the triple peaked Pawtuckaway Mountain's forest. The driving road can be reach via Reservation Rd, Deerfield. Boats from Fundy Launch off Deerfield Rd, Nottingham. Free trailhead on Round Pond Rd in Nottingham by the Deerfield line. The forest is filled with sites worth visiting; a fire tower, lake, cellar holes, graveyards, ponds, streams, cliffs, caves, wells and a huge number of gigantic boulders. Diverse fauna and flora not only include wild species of nuts and friuts, but the naturalized apples and black walnuts left behind with the old farms.

This is a place that will surprise you for years of exploring. There are parts for every type of outdoor activity, except whitewater. Do your homework or miss out on the best it has to offer for you.
