Visiting Mount Agamenticus

The Mount Agamenticus Conservation Region offers scenic vistas of the Atlantic Ocean and the White Mountains, along with unfragmented forests and watersheds that showcase years of land protection efforts. The Region also boasts more than 40 miles of trails used by an estimated 30,000 visitors each year. This vantage point, with its views of the undeveloped forests and local reservoirs, is the ideal location to bring your family, school group, company, club, or friends to enjoy the scenery, have a picnic, host a meeting, and learn about the significance of the region for wildlife and water quality.
