Just go out and take yourself, or a friend, the kids or the dog or all of the above and take a walk through the mowed paths in the fields, or in the woods along the bay. Unspoiled views that are timeless. Can get a bit wet in the low spots after a rain. Sledding on the big hill in... More

If you like long walks, quite, beauty this is the place, however at times some of the trails are a little soggy so wear shoes that you don't mind getting wet. Nice place to take your dog and it goes all the way to the water..

Whether you are looking for a walk in the woods, along the shore or along rolling meadows, Wagon Hill is a perfect spot for all seasons. Even winter, it provides a great sledding venue as well as a spot for cross country skiing and snowshoeing. Personally, I like to take a walk with my dog, find a peaceful spot in... More

Durham voters saved this gem for recreational use. Today it is popular for sledding and walking. The crest of the hill looks out to Great Bay. The wagon at the top is a magnet for photographers. The farm includes a house (not open for visitors) and family cemetery - a typical New England arrangement. A child can handle the well-worn... More

The town of Durham bought Wagon Hill a number of years ago when it was in danger of being developed. It was a polarizing decision at the time, and has continued to be for a number of townspeople. As a result, not much changes at Wagon Hill, which is actually a pretty good thing! With it's rolling fields, wonderful woodlands,... More

If you are visiting in the Durham area, Wagon Hill Farm is lovely place to visit for a walk and a picnic. The "Farm" is a large tract of land overlooking Little Bay to the south. It was "saved" from development by the Durham electorate and is owned and funded by the Town/Tax payers. At the head of the dirt... More

This is a great spot for sledding in winter and hiking along the bay in warmer months. It's busy after a good snow storm, but otherwise is a fairly quiet spot to hike or picnic.

Our son enjoys sledding down the hills on Wagon Hill just after a heavy snow. The parking lot fills up fast, but everyone who shows up is having fun! Great for snow shoeing, too, in winter.

Love this spot. Easy walking trails to beautiful views of the water. Between Durham and Portsmouth. Came here as a UNH student and now enjoying bringing my daughter here 10 years after graduation!

This is my favorite place to hike along the bay with the sweet salty air wafting around. It is also possible to gather some geocaches. There is very little elevation gain which makes perfect for my wife who has heart concerns.
