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.
