Description of the property
The Cooley-Jericho Community Forest is 840 acres in the town of Easton, Grafton County, in northwestern New Hampshire. The land is at the edge of the White Mountains, is partly adjacent to the White Mountain National Forest, and is one of the highest elevation privately held properties in the region. Rising from 1,600 feet to 2,645 feet in elevation, its topographic prominence makes it one of the most visible lands outside the WMNF from Sugar Hill and Landaff, and from parts of Easton.
The land has been managed for timber for many generations. It was most recently harvested over several winters, ending nine years ago. The public uses the land for recreation including hunting, birding, cross-country skiing, mountain biking, hiking, and wildlife photography and observation.
