Guided Snowshoe Hike To Explore Red Hill’s
Natural And Human History With Lakes Region Conservation Trust
Lakes Region Conservation Trust will host a
guided snowshoe hike on Saturday, February 6th from 10 am to 2 pm at the
Red Hill Conservation Area in Moultonborough. The hike will be guided by
John Oliver, LRCT Property Adopter for the Red Hill Conservation Area.
John Oliver’s connection to Red Hill and
Moultonborough goes back many generations, to the time when his
great-grandparents were settlers in the Ossipee Mountains on land now
permanently conserved as part of LRCT’s Castle in the Clouds
Conservation Area. John’s grandparents eventually settled in the valley
on the east side of Red Hill, and John grew up exploring and learning
from the land that now comprises the Red Hill Conservation Area.
The Lakes Region Conservation Trust was founded in 1979 to conserve the
natural heritage of New Hampshire’s Lakes Region. To date, LRCT
has conserved more than 130 properties totaling over 24,000 acres.
LRCT’s conservation and stewardship work preserves community character,
conserves critical wildlife habitat and diverse ecosystems, protects
natural landmarks and scenic landscapes, and provides outdoor recreation
opportunities for people of all ages.
LRCT offers guided excursions ― hiking, paddling, and snowshoeing trips
― year-round on and to LRCT’s properties throughout the Lakes Region.
The excursions provide a great opportunity to learn about and explore
LRCT’s conserved lands with knowledgeable guides.

Conservation Trust, upcoming excursions, or to support LRCT’s work in
