Moose Mountain Reservation, Middleton/Brookfield

About this Location

A small parking area and kiosk at the end of New Portsmouth Road mark the main entrance access to the property. Trails are a combination of woods roads, snowmobile trails, and footpaths.

There are more than 8 miles of trails to explore at the Moose Mountains Reservation. These trails are a combination of footpaths, woods, roads, and snowmobile trails. None of these trails have markers or signs and you may find some trails that are not shown on our property map.

The North Trail leads to a terrific lookout to the White Mountains. It’s a 30-40 minute uphill hike, but well worth the effort.

Another interesting spot is the site of the Old Burrows Farm, just off the Moose Mountain Trail. Open fields and two old cemeteries always make me think about the mountain lifestyle of 200 years ago.

Another highlight is the heron rookery – vacated, but you never know when they’ll be back. Take the Piper Mountain Trail to the height of land, then look for a spur trail off the south side that leads to the top of Piper Mountain for views down to the marsh with the rookery.
