A secret lies in Barrington, nestled in forested hills, hiding behind “No Trespassing” signs dotting its boundary…
This secret is the Stonehouse Forest, some 1,500 acres of land adjacent to the popular Stonehouse Pond. This expansive landscape supports vibrant wildlife, free flowing streams, and miles of trails.
What makes Stonehouse Forest so special?
• Clean water begins in these unfragmented woods with natural ponds, bogs and five miles of streams. In fact, Stonehouse Forest is the headwaters for Mendums Pond, eventually flowing to the Lamprey River and Great Bay.
• Wildlife thrive here, such as reclusive turtles and bobcats, migrating waterfowl like black duck, and our state’s largest mammals like moose and bear.
• Family-friendly recreation: Where “No Trespassing” signs once stood, welcome signs will invite you and your family to enjoy a trail network for hiking and exploring Stonehouse Forest.
• For the future: For all of these reasons, Town and regional partners have long-identified the Stonehouse Forest area as a conservation priority – saving this special place for today and future generations.
Thanks to our many partners and more than 425 individual donors, Stonehouse Forest has been saved for generations to come. THANK YOU!
