Downloadable maps and descriptions of all trails are available at harriscenter.org. The property includes ponds, woods walks, and a couple of summits. Take your pick! I've never been to a program at the Center, but the trail network in itself is worth a visit.

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.
