Grey Rocks, formerly a ma- rina, was placed in permanent conservation in 2011 and has since been restored by the NLRA to more natural conditions. Home to abundant wildlife, Grey
Rocks visitors may spot everything from beaver, bullfrogs, and turtles, to diverse species of water-
fowl and Newfound's resi- dent pair of nesting bald eagles! From the non-motorized boat launch, paddlers and rowers can make their way to the Cock- ermouth River, the Hebron marsh, or into the open waters of Newfound Lake. In 2016, with a grant from the New- found Lake Charitable Fund, NLRA published the Northern Newfound Water Trail, a help- ful map for boaters detailing the numerous points of inter
est along the north shore of Newfound Lake. On land, Grey Rocks visitors can enjoy 1.5 miles of trails, viewing platforms, and
picnic tables. Well-behaved dogs are allowed on-leash. Grey Rocks is a carry-in carry-out property, so re- member to bring a bag for
any trash or waste.
There’s no need to wait
until summer to see everything Grey Rocks has to offer—this property is open year round!
Head to 178 N Shore Rd, He- bron, NH to enjoy the beautiful sights of Newfound Lake during spring.
