Connecticut Lakes

The 146,400-acre Connecticut Lakes Headwaters Forest, encompasses much of the northern most tip of New Hampshire, and represents the largest unbroken tract of privately owned forestland in the State. The northern and western boundary of the Forest abuts Canada’s Quebec Province for approximately 24 miles. To the east, the property runs along the Maine boundary for approximately 20 miles. Also adjoining the forest is 25,000 acres owned by the State of New Hampshire. New Hampshire Route 3 runs for roughly 14 miles in a generally north-south direction through the property and effectively splits the Forest into two large roughly equal sections lying easterly and westerly of Route 3. Route 3 is a public, paved, all- season road. The entire ownership is encumbered by a working forest easement held by the state of New Hampshire. The easement provides for forest management, public access, and conservation of natural resources. For more information regarding public use:
