From downtown New London, head southwest on Pleasant Street. When Pleasant Street end, take a slight left onto Knights Hill Road. Almost immediately, turn right onto Bog Road. After crossing the interstate, turn right onto King Hill Road. Cross NH-103A onto Soo-Nipi Park. Parking is along the road after 0.25 miles. 


The Molly Charles Trail is relatively flat.  Highlights include old growth pines, stone walls, a large erratic left by glacial action, glimpses of King Hill Brook, and the remains of an old well and water tank.  The interpretive guide found in the mail box is informative and enhances the enjoyment of this trail.The Molly-Charles Trail consists of a main loop trail and two side trails in the Ausbon Sargent Land Preservation Trust (ASLPT) William R. Cordingley Preserve. The short side trails each lead to a brook that flows through an extensive hemlock grove within the preserve.
