A JOINT PROJECT OF HOPKINTON'S CONSERVATION COMMISSION AND OPEN SPACE COMMITTEE

Contoocook River-Overview

This 97-acre town-owned lot is located along the Contoocook River adjacent to the Mast Yard State Forest and Concord Broad Cove City Forest. Access to the lot is from a logging road that starts under the power lines on Broad Cove Road. The road follows the power lines for a short distance and then turns left and runs along the Town Line all the way to an old railroad bed.

The railroad bed is a heavily used recreational trail, especially by snowmobilers in the winter months. A hiking loop was constructed by the Hopkinton Boy Scout Troop in the early 1980s.
