The Mohawk River Division in Columbia, NH was established on December 18, 2007 when 13 acres were acquired by the Service. Currently, this division is 1,023 acres in size and is available for wildlife observation and photography via hiking, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing. It is also open to hunting and fishing following state regulations, with the following exceptions: bear baiting is prohibited and only temporary tree stands may be used. There are no roads or trails open to motorized vehicles on the division, except for the New Hampshire Snowmobile Corridor Trail 7 which crosses into the northern portion of the Division for a short distance. Habitat in this area, notable as a nesting area for the northern harrier, includes pastures, hayfields and old fields reverting to shrubs as well as small fens and swamps. The Mohawk River provides important habitat for native brook trout and juvenile Atlantic salmon.
