Experience our lands

The Forest Society owns over 170 reservations, located on over 50,000 acres spread across New Hampshire – and we want you to come explore it! All of our properties are open to the public, yet several offer a more complete recreational experience by having designated parking, kiosks, trails, and events. We've highlighted some of these reservations in our Guide to Our Lands area of the site. We hope you visit these gems and share your experiences with us.

Curious if a Forest Society property is nearby for a casual nature walk or weekend adventure? Download a PDF listing of our properties, complete with reservation names, locations and acreage.

Looking for a new fishing spot to try? See a PDF detailing the Forest Society's Top 17 Fishing Holes.

We also offer three activity centers that host a variety of educational and fun field trips and events.

General guidelines for public use of our lands: Daytime pedestrian (hiking and cross-country skiing) and snowmobile use (on established trails only, and with a 25 m.p.h. speed limit) are allowed on Forest Society properties. Hunting and fishing are allowed on most reservations, in a manner consistent with state law. Camping, fires, and wheeled vehicles (such as ATVs and mountain bikes) are prohibited. Leashed dogs are allowed except in cases where conflicts with wildlife are a concern. Trash is carry in/carry out.
