A few weeks ago, Lindsay heard about a scavenger hunt at Bronson Hill Conservation Area in Sugar Hill, NH. This over 600 acres of land is owned by or under conservation easement with the Ammonoosuc Conservation Trust.
This was our first visit and having the scavenger hunt help tell us which trails to go on was a great way to explore the lands. We read the scavenger hunt clues and made a hiking plan. We took the western Overlook Farm Loop to Harry’s Way to the Cabin. The field provided a wonderful view and lovely lunch spot.
After exploring the Cabin we took the eastern Perkins-Porter Loop to Perkins Way and Foss Path. We saw the northern parking area and took another break on a bench before making our way south again.
We had one more clue to figure out, but we decided to save it for another day and two weeks later we hiked up Bronson Hill to find the great pine tree.
This was a really fun area to explore and a great opportunity for Alden to hone his map skills and hike planning. The mixed forest, fields, old foundations, and Cabin made it really interesting. We loved having the scavenger hunt to guide us too!
