The Horatio Colony Nature Preserve offers five miles of hiking trails that are open to the public daily from dawn to dusk for nature study and recreation.
The trails have numbered stops that point out historic sites, plant communities and geological features. A guidebook, with information corresponding to the numbered stops, is available at the trailhead kiosk or downloadable on this site.
The complex of nature preserve trails now connects with Pisgah State Park through a 9.4 mile trail called the Keene Connector. This is part of the California Brook Project which has established a contiguous greenway of protected land that links the two properties.
The California Brook Project is a collaboration with the Colony Memorial Trust, the Monadnock Conservancy, the Chesterfield Conservation Commission and Antioch New England University and has been partially funded by LCHIP.
