Some hiking/walking for every ability

Lots of trails for all abilities with an emphasis on learning about conservation and nature in general. Perfect place to bring the children.

Nice variety of hiking trails and friendly, helpful staff and beautiful grounds. A friend was the director here for a number of years, so I know how much good they do. Stop in, a great place to experience all the green and pulsing life of a New Hampshire summer.

We had about 90 minutes to do some snowshoeing and decided to go to the Harris Center. It was a Saturday, so the building was closed. Never the less, we hit the Dandelion trail for a very nice adventure in a beautiful area full of glacial boulders and varied terrain. Hope to come back again in the summer.

The Harris Center is a leader in the Monadnock Region for its environmental programming. Local schools often take their students to the Harris Center to learn about flora, fauna and the environment. Try to attend a program while you are in the area.
