Tips for birding Hinsdale Setbacks
The rail trail continues north and south of Hinsdale Setbacks for several miles. For a great one-way walk, leave a cart at the boat launch and another at the gas station about 3 miles north on NH-119. You can also walk south of the boat launch for a similar distance; the trail ends at a gravel parking lot off NH-63.

Red-bellied Woodpeckers are common at this site, and Northern Rough-winged Swallows often breed in the stone embankment near the boat launch. Eastern Screech-Owl also is reliably encountered here at night, thought usually only call. In fact, this is one of the more reliable places to hear them in New Hampshire, outside the coastal plain.
