A Remarkable Opportunity

You know them well - Black Cap Mountain.  Peaked Mountain.  The Pudding Pond Trail.  Collectively they're known as the Green Hills - an iconic landscape, outdoor playground, and  beloved natural feature in the heart of the Mount Washington Valley. We're excited to announce an opportunity to add 1,300 acres (more than 2 square miles) to the existing 4,000-acre Green Hills Preserve – whose bald mountain peaks and lush forests provide the scenic backdrop to North Conway village.  And we need your support to do it!

The conservation and community benefits of this opportunity are significant, including the protection of headwater streams, rare forests types and wildlife habitat (download the project map). As tourism is the driving force behind the region’s economy, the expansion will add 3-5 miles of new, multi-use trails for residents and visitors alike – including a new southern trailhead for increased public access. Importantly, the property will remain on the Conway tax rolls – providing needed income for the community.

We are working alongside conservation partners, our members and the community to raise the $1.4 million needed to make this opportunity a reality. Join us in Growing Green Hills today!!

Recreation is the Name of the Game at Green Hills Preserve

Whether it’s hiking, snowshoeing or birdwatching, there’s something for everyone mere steps from the streets of North Conway.

“I love mountain biking in Green Hills, only a few minutes from downtown,” says Austin Orth, owner of Frontside Grind, a local coffee shop in the village. “It’s perfect to get out of work and get in top quality riding without having to load up a bike and drive somewhere.”

With all that it has to offer, it’s no wonder that the Green Hills Preserve has been given top honors, named as one of The Top 10 Family-Friendly Hikes in New England and Secret Places to Enjoy in New Hampshire by the Boston Globe.
