Tips for birding Esther Currier Wildlife Management Area at Low Plain
Officially the Esther Currier Wildlife Management Area, this site was formerly called the Low Plain WMA. The trail is a 1.25-mile long old road through the woods to Mountain Road on the southern end. A large beaver pond/marsh parallels the trail, and there are several short branch trails to overlooks and blinds at the edge of the pond. There is also a small pond on the left about a mile from the parking area.

From I-89 exit 11 in New London, go east on NH-11 (King Hill Road) about 2.3 miles and turn right on a dirt road across from a small cemetery to the parking area, where trail maps are available.
