Trails Closure

Weir Road - Boscawen Town Forest Trails (12/30/21):  NH Fish & Game has decommissioned the Hirst Marsh Trail connection between Queen Street and the Dagody Hill Trail in Boscawen.  A short trail to the marsh from the Queen Street trailhead remains, dead-ending at the dam. See revised Map 4.

Trail Re-routes

The Rossview Connector and Swope Connector trails have been re-routed to avoid sensitive areas and wet areas, and to address impacts to farm operations at Rossview Farm. Please see revised Map 28. Please remember, bicycles are not allowed on the Rossview Farm Easement. Dogs are welcome on leash.  You are a visitor to this property, please respect the landowner and the land. The farm was conserved to ensure viability for generations. Public cooperation and respect for the land is vital to this mission.
