Trail Guide   

An extensive section of woodland lies on the Hampton/North Hampton town line. Under the supervision of the Hampton Conservation Commission, it is known as the "Twelve Shares" section and is crossed with dirt roads and trails dedicated by the town to "passive" recreation. i.e. no motors.

The trail from Barbour Road goes about two miles through the woods on the conservation property before coming up against private property in North Hampton. There's no outlet in North Hampton. Turn around to return to Barbour Road.


NH - Southeast

  Driving Directions   

Find Twelve Shares by turning off Route 1 in Hampton at Ann's Lane (the corner with the Mobil Station and X-tra Mart). Follow Ann's Lane to the four-way stop at Mill Road and turn left. Slightly less than a mile up Mill, turn right on Barbour Road. The town's "Victory Garden" is on the left a few hundred yards up and, just beyond that is a metal gate marking the entrance to the trails.

The trails can also be reached by continuing up Mill Road to White's Lane, at the end of which is another gated entrance to the land.
