Adding this to my list of possible hikes:

The McCabe Forest, located in Antrim, boasts an impressive 189 acres of wildlife conservation land.

According to the Forest’s Society, the land is open to the public, offering a two-milelong hiking trail for any who wish to enjoy its natural beauty. The forest became conservation land after it was donated to the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests in 1982 by Dorothy McCabe. Along with the 189 acres, McCabe also donated her home, known as the Mc-Cabe house, which was used as staff residence up until it and 5 adjoining acres were sold in 2003.

Dorothy and her husband John moved to Antrim in 1943.

According to Dave Anderson, an employee of the SPNHF, Dorothy was a known naturalist who frequently documented observations she made. She was even involved in a women’s group who would hike certain spans of land in the Monadnock region. Other members of the group were associated with conservation projects such as the Harris Center and Shieling Forest. After donating McCabe forest, Dorothy helped author a guide written on the wildlife of the forest using the documentations she had made after years of observing. The McCabe’s contribution to the community has continued through the John F. and Dorothy H. Mc-Cabe Environmental Fund which has made contributions towards the protection of many land conservation projects in New Hampshire to this day.
