Best Time to Visit:
The McCabe Forest is known to have more than average amounts of mosquitoes, so it is best to visit before or after mosquito season.

Driving Directions:
Trailhead and parking area are on Rt. 202 in Antrim, NH. The parking area is 0.9 miles north of where the combined Rt. 31/Rt. 202 splits in the center of Antrim. There are three trailheads with signs for the McCabe Forest. Park at the northernmost and largest parking area, located next to a small garage. For trail directions, refer to the trail map.

About the Hike:
The Forest Society's McCabe Forest contains about two miles of trails around the Contoocook River. The main trail runs the length of the property to make a pleasant river walk. There are many possibilities to make a loop hike, but all the trails are unnamed and blazed in the same color. The trail network is very confusing, so we recommend you either take a photo of the kiosk trail map or just do an out-and-back hike along the river.
