Distant Hill is an Environmental and Horticultural Learning Center encompassing fifty-eight acres of forest, fields, and wetlands straddling the town line separating Walpole, NH, from Alstead, NH. Distant Hill is made up of two adjoining properties: Distant Hill Gardens and Distant Hill Nature Trail.
Distant Hill Gardens is open to the public on selected weekends from May to October, and for numerous educational workshops, talks, and special events throughout the year. We also offer guided tours for groups of an size by appointment, and self-guided tours by appointment or chance.
Distant Hill Nature Trail is a mile-long, wheel-chair accessible, gravel trail just east of Distant Hill Gardens. It is open daily, dusk-to-dawn, free of charge. Trailhead parking and an information kiosk are available just off a paved road.
