Contoocook Marsh Conservation Complex
View Connector Trails
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.
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.
