Welcome to Merrimack’s “Outdoor” web site!

Merrimack is home to some of the largest remaining uninterrupted tracks of forest and open space land in Southern New Hampshire.

These forests are right in our backyards!

What's New?

Have you heard about the NED Pipeline project?  It is proposed to go through 2 of our featured properties:  Horse Hill Nature Preserve and Gilmore Hill Memorial Forest.  If you want to know more, please watch our meetings or checkout the Town and NRPC websites.  You can also google "NED Pipeline" to find other websites.  It will change the landscape.  You Commission is concerned, actively engaged, and working to protect our properties.

Hope you have had a chance to get out in the snow and enjoy our properties during this time of year.  It can be really pretty and you get to see aspects of these great properties you can't see when there are leaves on the trails. 

As the snow melts and we start getting really wet or muddy areas, please don't try to create a new trails or re-route trails to avoid the water.  It is really better to just turn around and take a different trail.  Creating new ways to get through really creates more issues for our volunteers who keep the trails going all year long.  Thanks!
