Explore the Hebron Town Forest:

Since the acquisition of this 450 acre property in 2007, the Conservation Commission has explored its diverse forest, fields and water. The forest extends in the north from the Cockermouth Forest (Bald Knob) in Groton, borders Spectacle Pond and meanders along the Cockermouth River to Groton Road.

The Cockermouth Ledge Trail is a two-mile loop with yellow markers. Make a sharp left (marked) after crossing the bridge from the parking lot. It follows the river (possibly muddy during spring thaw) and climbs gently to meander through birch and beech forest, through an ecotone (where deciduous and softwoods meet) into hemlock forest. You’ll enjoy ledges that look towards Sculptured Rocks and then circle around to a beautiful view of the Hebron Church steeple and Newfound Lake.
