After another fantastic summer and fall, the gate to drive up to Hacker’s Hill Preserve in Casco is officially closed for the winter season.  We will re-open to vehicular traffic in the spring of 2017 and as always, foot traffic is welcome year round.

The $800,000 capital campaign to protect Hacker’s Hill was completed in 2013 as a result of generous donations from the town and many businesses and members.  Hacker’s Hill holds a special place in the hearts of so many people who have visited to celebrate proms, weddings, family gatherings and of course to see the sun set over the White Mountains.

The “hill” attracts visitors from all over New England as the road to the top allows everyone and all abilities to enjoy its quiet solace.   Loon Echo offers programs to the public at the preserve every year including geology programs, hawk migration watches and kite making programs with the town of Casco and our annual summertime Acoustic Sunset Concert series.  In the winter visitors can park in the small pull off to the left of the entrance and hike to the top for stunning views of the winter landscape.   Snow snowmobiling is welcome on the designated trail seen on the preserve map HERE.
