Wantastiquet Mountain State Forest

Wantastiquet Mountain, 1335 feet high, is the predominant feature of the Wantastiquet Mountain State Forest. 520 Acres of the forest are located in the southwest corner of Chesterfield along the Connecticut River.


Wantastiquet Mountain Trail begins on a gravel road that was cut to serve the quarries on the mountain. It begins on Mountain Road, off of NH 119 past the bridge over the Connecticut River into NH. Trailhead is towards the orange gate and waterfall. The trail is a series of switchbacks to the summit of Wantastiquet Mt. (1368') about 2 miles and 1 hour and 1/2 of hiking. The trail heads up to a communications tower and continues to the Mine Ledge Trail and down to the Indian Pond on the Anne Stokes Trail in the Madame Sherri Forest.

This trail is the beginning of the Wantastiquet-Monadnock Trail and Greenway.
