Our newest conservation project is purchasing and permanently conserving 330 contiguous acres in Fayette, including the top of 600-foot Surry Hill.
Join us this summer for a photography walk with local photographer, Phil Downes, and KLT staff. Bring your camera, or just yourself if you prefer to only walk.
This land features over 250 acres of secondary forestland, streams flowing into Echo Lake, Hales Pond, Pocasset Lake, and Lovejoy Pond, valuable wetlands, and phenomenal scenic views. We plan to maintain approximately fifteen acres as open fields to preserve scenic views of the White Mountains and nearby hills, lakes, and woodlands.
At this time, there is no formal trail system. There is a logging road to the summit.
Free and open to all, no pre-registration necessary. Meet at the south end of Tom Surrey Road in Fayette.
Directions: From Route 17 in Fayette, turn south on Tom Surrey Road (google maps calls this Pine Needle Alley), directly opposite the Fayette Central School. Travel about a half mile. Park in the pull off on the right-hand side opposite the last house on the left. Do not continue straight on the road, it is not suitable for motor vehicles.
