About A mile-long network of gently sloping trails through a hemlock forest on Distant Hill, with vernal pools, a forest seep, and a cranberry bog to explore.
Distant Hill Nature Trail cover
Description Distant Hill Nature Trail is a network of gently sloping compacted gravel trails on 21 acres in south-western Alstead, NH. The five-foot wide trails wind through a hemlock/hardwood forest rich with many species of native wildflowers, shrubs, and trees and give easy access to a number of unique wetland habitats including:

Five Vernal pools
A Black Ash Forest Seep
A floating Cranberry Bog/Fen

And there are more than a half dozen large sitting-stones found along the trails for rest and contemplation. Abutting Distant Hill Nature Trail to the west is Distant Hill Gardens, an environmental and horticultural learning center on an additional 37 acres located in Walpole, NH.
