About this Location

Tuttle Swamp is a large farm field owned by the Newmarket Conservation Commission, with forested areas in the rear. A marshy area with a small stream near the parking area drains from a small pond and Tuttle Swamp further back. A marked trail crosses a small bridge and then circumnavigates the field, with a spur into the woods and back along the marsh and pond for a short distance until it becomes too wet for passage.

Tuttle Swamp is located on Grant Road, Newmarket. From the intersection of NH-108 and NH-152 in downtown Newmarket, go west for .8 mile on NH-152. Turn left on Grant Road and go 2.9 miles to a dirt parking lot on the right.
