Wapack National Wildlife Refuge

Wapack is the most thoroughly protected wildlife refuges in New Hampshire. In attempts by those overseeing the park to keep it as close to a natural habitat as possible, they have banned all human activity besides hiking and general observation.

The trail is an interesting one, about twenty miles long and offering some of the best views the North Pack Monadnock Mountains have to offer. The wildlife you will encounter here is decidedly wild, namely because of the general lack of human involvement. Natives include bears, minks, coyote, warblers, and sparrows. And if you look up during peak migration periods, you’re bound to catch a hawk swooping through your plain of vision.
