We are just down the road from I-93 and Route 25 in the Plymouth area of the Granite State.

And, as always, we have free parking and free admission.

Stop by and take a walk around the Bog. It takes about an hour.

Our nature walks and evening programs are "hibernating" for the winter. Be sure to check back this spring for a complete list of walks and programs.

In addition to operating the Nature Center and trails around the Bog and the nearby Quincy Pasture Forest property, the Pemi-Baker Land Trust is part of our organization too! The land we steward under conservation easements is open for your enjoyment (foot traffic only). To learn more, check out our land trust website, PBLT.org. Perhaps you have some land that you and your family want to protect for the future – we can help you obtain information about conservation easements.

Quincy Bog is open during daylight hours to the public 365 days a year. We don't have specific hours, but overnight camping is not allowed.
