The Castle in the Clouds Conservation Area is 5,000 conserved acres with 45 miles of hiking trails to waterfalls, views from mountain summits and outlooks, signs of wildlife, historic sites, and interesting geological features of the Ossipee Mountains.
This property is part of the Ossipee Mountain ring, a circular formation of volcanic origin. Seven of the Ossipee Mountains’s biggest peaks are on the Castle property, including Mount Shaw and Bald Knob, with its view of Lake Winnipesaukee. The trails are well maintained, marked, and mapped.
Two trailhead parking areas are free and open to the public for getting onto the trails during the day. One is on Route 171 and the other is at the end of Ossipee Park Road. A helpful hiking trail map is available for purchase.
