The John Hay Forest Ecology Trail is 0.9 miles in length. Trail visitors should be prepared for uneven and slippery footing, especially along Beech Brook. There are two foot bridges across Beech Brook, and the trail beyond the brook is generally level with good footing. This trail dead-ends at The Fells property boundary. Those wishing to return to the parking lot via The Fells must pay for admission. The alternative is to backtrack on the trail. Hikers should bring water, insect repellent, and wear appropriate hiking footwear.
Route 103A on the eastern shore of Lake Sunapee in Newbury, NH. Note: No on-refuge parking is available. Visitors may park at The Fells 456 Route 103A.
