Guided Paddle: Northern Newfound Water Trail – Grey Rocks Conservation Area, Hebron NH

July 25 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join Newfound Lake Region Association (NLRA) for a guided paddle on Newfound Lake, Thursday, July 25, at 10am.  Paddlers will begin at Grey Rocks Conservation Area in Hebron and launch their non-motorized boats to explore the amazing wildlife and scenic views of the northern end of Newfound Lake, including the mouth of the Cockermouth River and the Hebron Marsh. Wildlife such as loons, eagles, osprey, beaver, moose, bear, and numerous species of turtles and frogs are all present in this area because of the rich habitat provided by permanently conserved lands, including Grey Rocks Conservation Area, The Charles Bean Sanctuary, and NH Audubon’s Paradise Point. Paddlers will gain a new appreciation for the natural resources of Newfound Lake and what it takes to protect them. Participants must supply their own non-motorized watercraft and personal floatation devices. There is no cost to attend this event, however registration is required and space is limited. Register at NewfoundLake.org/events or by calling (603) 744-8689.

The non-motorized boat launch at Grey Rocks Conservation Area is open to the public throughout the summer. The Northern Newfound Water Trail Map and Guide, which highlights areas of interest for paddlers along the northern shore of Newfound, can be found at NewfoundLake.org/GreyRocks. Grey Rocks Conservation Area provides year-round public access to the outdoors at the northern end of the lake. In summer it also hosts Newfound EcoTours to provide a deeper look at the ecology of Newfound and NLRA’s work; find more information at NewfoundLake.org/EcoTours.

NLRA works to protect the high-quality waters of Newfound Lake and its watershed, maintaining a healthy and diverse ecosystem. NLRA members support educational programming like guided hikes and paddles, water quality monitoring, land conservation, stormwater management, and invasive species monitoring.
