The Fogg Hill Trail is a moderate 2.0 mile round-trip trail with an elevation gain of 370' that passes by an active beaver pond where beaver, woodpeckers, and other wildlife may be seen. Beyond the pond the trail climbs at moderate grades to the wooded, 990' summit of Fogg Hill which is marked by a split granite boulder. In winter when the leaves are off the trees there are limited views of the Belknap Range to the south. Signs of moose are seen in many places along the trail where they have scraped bark from the trees beside the trail. The Fogg Hill Trail is blazed in yellow.

The Bog Trail, which terminates at private property, is a moderate 1.2 mile round-trip trail with some short, steep sections. It departs from the Fogg Hill Trail 0.9 miles from the parking area and is blazed in orange.
