Beaver Brook Association is comprised of nearly 2,000 acres of forest, fields, and wetlands in Hollis, Brookline, and Milford, New Hampshire. The land lies where the southern transitional forest meets the northern hardwood forest, creating a diverse landscape of interest to the naturalist and the hiker alike.
With some 35 miles of trails, the area provides a quiet and contemplative setting for daytime excursions. Forest and wildlife management is practiced throughout the property for the purposes of demonstrating sustainable forestry practices and wildlife habitat techniques to protect and encourage a diverse array of native species.
BBA also protects significant portions of two watersheds and has designated natural areas that will be left unmanaged in perpetuity. We encourage the public to visit our forest, which is open from dawn to dusk seven days a week, and rediscover the natural world.
Rules for Trail Use
Beaver Brook trails are open to the public every day from dawn until dusk. The trails are designated by blue rectangular markings for “multi-use” which allows horse and bicycle traffic and yellow triangular markings denoting “single-track” or more fragile trails allowing hiking and cross-country skiing only. Trail users are encouraged to stay on marked trails leaving the land, wildlife and plant life undisturbed. The use of motorized vehicles other than Beaver Brook Association work vehicles or emergency vehicles is strictly prohibited.
- Dogs are welcome at Beaver Brook, but must be leashed at all times and kept under control by their owner. There are no exceptions to this rule and enforcement will be referred to the Hollis Police Department. Beaver Brook is a carry-in an carry-out facility and this pertains to cleaning up after dogs and taking the waste home for proper disposal.
- Camping and campfires are prohibited unless pre-authorized for educational purposes.
- Fishing is allowed only in accordance with N.H. State regulations. Trails are monitored for their ability to sustain traffic and range from easy to moderate affording accessibility to a majority of citizens
