Difficulty Level: Easy


Jon Normand and Mike Boisvert own a 79-acre parcel of land along the Soucook River in Loudon, NH and we are developing outdoor recreation features and resources for the public to enjoy including trailhead parking lot, kiosk, trails network/map, signage, pollinator garden, sitting benches, picnic tables; and possibly an outdoor pavilion for educational purposes and outdoor art sculptures!

Volunteer for a half day of trail work from 10:00am to 2:00pm! We need members to do all sorts of trail maintenance, from cutting brush around the gate and kiosk, blazing, clearing branches that encroach within the trail corridor, removing debris on the ground, and more.  

You don't have to be an expert to help and we can easily train you. We’ll have saws and loppers for everyone.  Members from another group, Pemi Valley Hikers, will be helping us. Meet us at the trailhead at 10:00AM and bring snacks, lunch, water and what you normally would carry for an easy hike but be sure to bring work gloves. Our blue Toyota Tacoma truck will be at the trailhead.  

If there is interest, afterwards we can give you a tour of the rest of the nature preserve and share with you our plans for the future! As part of our philosophy, we believe in doing our part to give back to the hiking community!

Driving directions to the location and spot to meet at:

If travelling south, drive down Route 106 south, continue past the Motor Speedway until you reach traffic lights. After the road on the left called Town Dump Road, take your next left, Currier Road. After one minute, you’ll see trailhead parking on the right.

If travelling north, drive up I-93 to Concord, take I-393 to the end, and take a left onto Route 106 North. After the traffic lights for the intersection of Route 129, look for Currier Road on the right. After one minute, you’ll see trailhead parking on the right.

If the parking lot is full, please park alongside the road; the same side of the gate.
