Our barn recently organized trail ride to Beaver Brook. With the assistance of the Association staff, we planned two 90-minute loops on well-groomed, multi-use trails. We lunched at picnic table at Brown Lane Barn that also has parking and a turn-around for trailers. You can also access water for the horses here and a port-o-potty for humans, however, check ahead of time to make sure the water is turned on OR bring your own for the horses. The Association prefers riders to clean up after their horses, however, we came from a distance and arranged to make a trail maintenance donation instead. There is no entrance fee. The trails are very diverse and our experienced riders and horses were able to walk, trot, canter and gallop during the ride. There are bridges and a few steep areas along the route which should be factored into your horses' preferences;)

My friend and I brought our horses here for something new. It's beautiful and not crowded but the trails we went on were not good for horseback riding. The trails were rocky with lots of roots sticking out, very close trees that we barely fit through, and low tree branches. There were also some bridges that didn't seem safe for horses to cross. I would definitely go back with my dog and kids to hike but wouldn't go back to go horseback riding.

Great time with our girls. Got a little lost... wish the trails were marked better.

Great place!! The waterfall is right near the trail so it's not a far walk from the enterences!

Short Easy hike today on the Beaver Brook Trail that parallels the water. Bridges are in great condition and almost completely dry in the normal muddy areas.

My favorite trail to date since getting the All Trails app. Much less traveled than previous trails we've been on. Serene ponds, overlooks, woods..... just a very peaceful place once you get around to the other side of the big pond. There are several places with little benches next to the many ponds here that you could just sit in peace and listen to nature all around you. A recent rain made for some parts of the trail to be slightly muddy and a little water covered spots, but not impassible or flooded. Love this trail and will be back.

A peaceful, well kept trail. Fun for all ages and plenty of paths to take to make the adventure as long or as short as you'd like. The area is great for photos from portraits, to scenic nature shots--especially during peak foliage season (late September - late October).

A very beautiful trail system, set in solitude, with little to no road noise and long well maintained trails. Hands down the best trail system in southern NH!

Really enjoyed this trail with my little 4 yet old hiker. The educational trails provided great information on the forest around us. Great trails for little hikers and easy to navigate.

I come here all the time. My dog and I both love it. There we so many might see a full parking lot at the trail head and not run into a single soul while you're out here. Beautiful spot.

Doesn't offer any, "spectacular views" or anything like that, but it is still pretty scenic. Great for running too.

The whole family loves hiking here! make sure you have your cameras and binoculars. There are so many trail combinations to take it can't get old. The children liked Wigwam trail the best. I think they all rock!

One of my favorite places to hike and take pictures. Maple Hill Garden has beautiful flowers. There are so many different types of trails, too. Some go over a meandering streams. Some trails go up hills and by ponds. I've seen lots of beavers and deer and a few porcupines. It's such a peaceful place. Not too crowded too.
