Beaver Brook Association is a mission-driven, privately held, non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the interrelationships in the natural world and encouraging the conservation of natural resources through education and land stewardship.

Thanks to the generous support of our community through memberships and donations, we are able to provide free public access to our grounds.



Forest Tales Storytime: Every Monday at 10:00 AM at Maple Hill Farm we’re hosting an outdoor storytime for our youngest naturalists. This ongoing event is FREE and requires no registration.

Enchanted Forest Family Walk: Saturday, October 30th, 3:00 – 5:00 PM. Small groups will follow a self-guided “Unscary” marked trail with stations that will teach you about New England wildlife ending at the campfire for cider and s’mores! Sign up for time slot here.

Beaver Brook offers 35 miles of well maintained trails.   Be sure to take a map! Well behaved dogs are allowed on a leash.  Multi-purpose trails permit horseback riding, and mountain biking .


The Maple Hill gardens include 13 impressive theme gardens, a Victorian gazebo, a wisteria arbor, 350 species of flowers and shrubs and a demonstration compost court.



The Beaver Brook office at Maple Hill Farm is located 1 mile off of Rt. 122 in Hollis NH. Beaver Brook trails may be accessed from several different public roads. Our trails are open to the public, 365 days a year, from dawn until dusk. When planning your hike, consult the map first.


Beaver Brook relies on contributions from our visitors and the community to maintain our lands, trails and the many historic buildings used for environmental education programs.
