Kent TrailQuincy Bog (also known as Cranberry Bog) was threatened by development in the early 1970s and purchased for $10,000 by a local group led by Joe Kent (incorporated as "Rumney Ecological Systems"). The Nature Center (131 Quincy Bog Road) was built in 1978. The 43-acre property, consisting of a pond and associated wetlands surrounded by upland forest, supports a variety of plant and animal life, including typical bog/fen vegetation and an active beaver colony. The mostly level, mile-long trail around the pond is open to the public free of charge 365 days a year during daylight hours.

Quincy Pasture Forest

The 92-acre Quincy Pasture Forest was deeded by The Nature Conservancy, which holds a conservation easement on the property. Located on the lower flank of Stinson Mountain, the property extends from frontage on the East Rumney Road almost to the boundary of the White Mountain National Forest, and contains the headwaters of Quincy Bog. On the upper half of the property forest growth (primarily conifers) is allowed to proceed naturally; the lower forest of mixed hardwood and white pine is managed to promote forest diversity and enhance wildlife habitat. There are two loop trails: a lower, moderately strenuous hike and a steeper, more rugged upper hiking trail.


The former Baker State Forest was deeded by the State of New Hampshire and renamed the Baker Forest. A combination red pine / white pine plantation, the 5-acre property will be managed for sustainable timber production.
