The Lakes Region Conservation Trust has expanded the Red Hill Conservation Area in Moultonborough an additional 88 acres.
The Lakes Region Conservation Trust (LRCT) is proud to announce the expansion of its Red Hill Conservation Area in Moultonborough. LRCT’s acquisition of 88 acres of land on the eastern flank of Red Hill increases the size of the conservation area to 2,664 acres. The newly acquired parcel aids in the protection of tremendous natural beauty, valuable wildlife habitat, and abundant opportunities for outdoor recreation and nature education as part of an expansive unfragmented woodland habitat.
Red Hill has long been an important recreational resource for residents and visitors alike. With over ten miles of trails for hiking, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and snowmobiling, Red Hill is one of the best places in the region for family hikes. The area is visited by thousands of people each year; for generations of children, Red Hill has been their first mountain climb.
For nearly 30 years, conservation of land on Red Hill has been one of LRCT’s highest priorities. LRCT is very grateful for extraordinarily generous support for this project from many individuals and families in the area. Over 320 customers donated to the project by adding a contribution to their total at the checkout counter of E.M. Heath’s Supermarket in Center Harbor.
As owner of the Red Hill Conservation Area, LRCT looks forward to conserving and stewarding this important property for the benefit and enjoyment of the community for generations to come.
