Moose Mountains Reservation
There are more than eight miles of trails to explore at the Moose Mountains Reservation. These trails are combination of foot paths, woods roads, and snowmobile trails. The main trails have been signed and blazed however you may find some trails that are not shown on our property map.
Visitors will be greeted by amazing views from Beauty Ledge off the North Trail. 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.
