This is a review of the the Loon Nest trail at the center, not of the center itself. This trail promises a views of nesting loons, but there is only one spot where one MIGHT get to see a nest. (Loons build nests on the water and the trail is NEVER close to the water, so ...) The trail is generally well-marked, but there are a few spots where more yellow trail blazes would be helpful- we were briefly lost a few times. Also, the signs do not clearly indicate when one reaches the end of the trail and thus should head back to the center. We visited too late in the season to see any loons in nests, but I doubt that one would get good views even at peak times, given the distance between the trail and the water, and intervening shrubs.

I have been here multiple times and enjoyed myself. Learned a lot about loons as well as other animals. The hiking trails are also very nice as well.

This visit was a follow up after a "Cruise" on Squam Lake (Golden Pond). On that trip we were up close to Loons and enjoyed their songs and saw a nesting bird on a raft nesting platform. The Look Center offers loads of information about loons including an informative 20 minute film. We plan a return visit next year.

Small venue but very informative. Learned all about the habits and life cycle of loons and watched a live feed of a loon tending the nest. Great for all ages. It is free to the public but gave a bit of support by a few purchases in the gift shop. There are a couple of hiking trails but it was overcast and buggy the day of our visit so we passed on that.

The Loon Center in Moultonborough, NH is a treat for all ages. The center has mounted specimens, posters, and great videos about loons. These beautiful birds can be sighted on most lakes in the region. During the June-July breeding season, you can sometimes spot a local pair on a nest from the outlook on the wooded walking trails at the center. The Loon Preservation Committee has studied and worked to restore the NH loon population for 40 years, with great success.
