Hikers help NH Forest Society buy land for Mount Sunapee hike

The Associated Press

NEWBURY — Hikers have helped the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests preserve a parcel of land that contains the trailhead to a popular hike up Mount Sunapee.

The Forest Society bought the 33-acre trailhead property, off Mountain Road in Newbury, in order to protect access to the Andrew Brook Trail.

The two-mile Andrew Brook Trail climbs through a beech, birch and maple forest before reaching Lake Solitude, then continuing on to the scenic cliffs of the White Ledges area.

The Sunapee Women's Adventure Group is one of a number of groups that support the project. Member Midge Eliassen said the opportunity to save the trailhead property resonated in the community.
