Almost 25% of the Monadnock region is conserved land. There is a strong culture that promotes historic and natural preservation - keeping our wild lands wild, our farmland for farming, and our historic places beautifying our landscape. This means there are so many opportunities to get away from it all - hiking, camping, swimming, and driving around the winding roads that take you on journeys through the woods. You can unplug and get in touch with nature, without traveling far.
