This property, which is entirely surrounded by the National Forest and the Echo Lake-Cathedral Ledge State Park, includes portions of two popular hiking trails and is adjacent to Diana's Baths, one of the most beautiful spots in the White Mountains.

International Paper and TPL announced the finalized sale of 171,500 acres in Pittsburg, Clarksville, and Stewartstown, NH.

Less than 15 miles from Concord and Manchester, Kimball Pond provides fishing and boating for residents of those cities, as well as other area residents. The Dunbarton Conservation Commission and TPL are only $50,000 away from protecting an additional 664 acres around Kimball Pond. If the project is successful, the town of Dunbarton would own the property and the state would hold a conservation easement to prevent development.
