Heald Tract

Everyone has that one trail that is their go to trail.  A trail that is accessible all year round, close to where you live and provides you that sense of satisfaction with being outside without having to drive long distances.  The Heald Tract does just that for my family and I. We have been hiking this trail since we moved to the area.


Located on Heald Road in Wilton is a series of trails known as the Heald Tract.  This is conservation land owned by the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests and is it perfect for year round activities like hiking, fishing, snow shoeing, wildlife viewing and cross country skiing. There are a few different trails with minimal elevation gain. My favorite trail is King Brook Reservoir.


I recommend bringing the trail map if you haven’t been there before. These trails are good for all abilities and age levels.     


Recently they have been doing some clearcutting and it has affected some of the trails. I have seen signs up if the trails are closed.
