Welcome to Quincy Bog Natural Area

We're glad you stopped by. Explore our website and get to know a bit about the nature and history of this unique area protected through the efforts of the board and volunteers with Rumney Ecological Systems. 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.

QuincyBog.org is currently under construction

We are building a new website for our visitors. This site still functions but may not be updated much in the coming weeks as we get ready to turn the page. We hope that you will find us with a new look at this address in a month or so. Until then, visit us on Facebook or enjoy a winter walk around the Bog.

There are a variety of ways to enjoy the Bog -

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

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.
