The nature trail travels south through the woods along the old US Route 202 road bed before turning east, crossing a floating bridge, and striking the Monadnock Branch Rail Trail. A path to the marsh overlook continues east on the other side of the rail trail and forms a loop with benches and an excellent spot for wildlife viewing.
Walkers and bikers may continue north on the Rail Trail for a half mile to the public boat launch at the end of County Road. Along the way, there is another conservation area known as Roger's Landing to the east, featuring a small pond and pollinator habitat.
Excellent blueberry and cranberry picking is seasonally available.
The Contoocook Complex trails are maintained by the Town of Rindge Conservation Commission.
A small gravel parking lot is located on County Road, 1/4 mile east of its intersection with US-202 in Rindge. An informational kiosk marks the entrance to the trail.
