About Philbrick-Cricenti Bog
This site supports an exemplary kettle hole bog natural community system and has a well-maintained trail network. Four peatland natural community types can be seen here: leatherleaf – sheep laurel shrub bog, Sphagnum rubellum – small cranberry moss carpet, liverwort – horned bladderwort fen, and large cranberry – short sedge moss lawn. A wide variety of bog plants is found here. The bog is surrounded by wetland and forested upland natural communities. May and June are good months to see the flowering plants in bloom.

From exit 12 on I-89, take Newport Rd (old NH-11) east towards New London for 1 mile. Park at the small turnout on the right (south) side of the road. Look for the trail sign partly hidden in the trees. There is currently parking here for several vehicles.

From the center of New London, take Newport Rd (old NH-11) west about a mile (or half a mile past the hospital). Park at the small turnoff on the left (south) side of the road. Look for the trail sign partly hidden in the trees. There is currently parking here for several vehicles.

The trail network here totals about a mile and takes around an hour to complete at a leisurely pace.
