Description

The Hay Forest Reservation in Newbury, NH offers nearly four miles of excellent hiking along interior roads and trails that wind through the pine, red oak, spruce, hemlock and northern hardwood forests growing back on former hay fields, sheep pastures, and orchards. Sunset Hill provides sweeping views of Lake Sunapee, Mount Sunapee, Kearsarge, and distant peaks of the White Mountains. The most popular route up Sunset Hill starts from the trailhead across Route 103A from The Fells Histortic Estate and Gardens and climbs the northwestern slope to open ledges at the summit.  The round trip route is about 2.5 miles.
