Fernald's Neck Preserve Professional Review and Guide

"Circumnavigate Fernald’s Neck while enjoying impressive old growth forests of pine and hemlock and miles of scenic Megunticook Lake shorefront. The 328-acre Fernald’s Neck Preserve occupies a sizeable portion of a large peninsula that juts out into the center of Megunticook Lake. Five color-coded
trails combine for a wonderful tour of the property, with its 4 miles of pretty lakefront and great stands of mature forests.

Owned and managed by the Coastal Mountains Land Trust, Fernald’s Neck was protected for conservation in 1969, after the threat of development motivated local citizens to take serious action to preserve the natural beauty of this scenic gem as well as the water quality of the lake. The Nature Conservancy, which assisted with the conservation deal, became the owner of the initial 285 acres upon completion of the purchase."
