This trail provides access to the Atlantic white cedar swamp, views of the Contoocook River and wetlands, and views of northern hills on the adjacent Peirce Reservation. There is a boardwalk that extends 200 feet into the heart of the swamp-please do not step off the boardwalk! This reserve is managed by The Nature Conservancy in New Hampshire, and is an excellent place for walking, fishing, and observing wildlife. Camping, fires, pets, or wheeled vehicles are not permitted on the preserve.

Plenty to see here!! Between the old Mill site and wetlands Loverens Mill Cedar Swap Preserve is worth a visit. However, In the current state the trails are in, I would not advertise them as easy. If the trails were maintained a it better I would have given this a 4.

I am sure this place is a beauty in the winter. However, we went today and the first stretch of the path was wildly overgrown. We missed the trail marker (which is on the right about 1/4 of a mile in) - it easy to miss. The last 75 feet of the boardwalk were overrun with swamp water. We are pretty easy going, but after a haul up a completely unkempt (hip height grass and shrubs...) path with four toddlers in tow, missing the sign for the trail, and sinking 1 foot into the swamp while crossing the boardwalk, we decided to turn around. The Nature Conservancy should revisit this one and get the preliminary path cleared up and the boardwalk repaired. It just needs some maintenance. For those willing to trod through the tall grass and shrubs, bring heavy duty bug spray and pants to keep the ticks away.

I love this trail. Beautiful stretch along the North Branch of the Contoocook River. And the boardwalk into the ancient Cedar Swamp is pretty magical. Also great for winter snowshoeing.

Great Trail with lots of sights along the way. Huge boulders, mushrooms galore, the Contoocook river, Beaver dams, waterfalls. Easy hike with minimal elevation.
